Don’t miss this movie! How wonderful to see a movie with people facing problems we all face! Great!
I saw a preview of this movie last night. I have been an admirer of both Redford and Freeman for years. They are a marvelous team. I was moved by their banter and by the the caring relationship that is a result of forty years of friendship. Both give Oscar-worthy performances. Jennifer Lopez was surprisingly good as the victim of domestic abuse. The little girl who played her daughter was also excellent.
As my sister and I left the theater, a woman with a clipboard was asking for comments. We both said, “It was great.” She answered, “That’s what everybody is saying. They liked the story and the actors.”
Don’t miss this movie! We need more movies that focus on people, not explosions, special effects and gore.
Possibly an Oscar hopeful…
I loved this film, it was a beautiful story. It has its ups and its downs. Its ups= the acting, its downs= the pace. Worse films have won Oscars, so I definitely think this should be considered. At times its fantastic, at other times it just seems to raise its hand in the air frantically begging for an Oscar. This film would have been much better if it was made for the purpose of telling a great story, not for the purpose of getting an Oscar.
Redford is great. He is cast well, and at most times owns the part of Einar Gilkyson. I am biased, however, by having read half the book before I saw the film (didn’t have time to finish it). The film tried to hard to make Einar a tough guy (physically). For example, the scene where the two drunk guys come in the restaurant and harass Nina, the waitress/owner (played by Camryn Manheim). In the book, Redford just simply goes over and talks to them, and actually gets scared that they might kick his butt and another character comes in to “reprimand” them. The film has Redford smashing their heads in with a coffee pot and threatening them with a fork in the throat. I cannot decide whether I like this change or not. I cannot help but notice Redford in a different light in this film. He looks different, and his character is much different than other characters in his career. He seemed to take a risk with this character, and it turned out for the better.
Morgan Freeman is fantastic. I walked into the movie, hoping not to see a clitche’d Freeman as the prophet/preacher/conscience of the film. I must admit, that at a lot of times, the typical Freeman does comes to the surface and he gets almost all of the proverbial lines of the film. However, unlike the typical narrator role he plays, he brings personality and humor to the part of Mitch Bradley. Mitch is not perfect, and isn’t just there for the sake of having a preacher-character on the ranch. He goes through his own subplot of forgiveness, with the bear that attacked him. Many can take this scene is “corny” and a clitche, but I think his best moment in the film is his discovery of the bear on his property near the end. You can see the fear in his eyes, he’s on crutches and has nowhere to run. Te bear charges him and he closes his eyes and repeats “Just keep going.” The bear gets forgiveness, which is representation of what should be received by Jean.
Jennifer Lopez is not bad in this film at all. In fact, I almost argue that this is her best performance since Out Of Sight. My judgement of her performance was biased, however, having read half the book. I did not agree with the characterization Jennifer chose of Jean. Jennifer’s Jean draws too much inspiration from Slim Hiller in Enough. Jennifer plays her to be too much of a victim at times. The book had Jean as a flirtatious sexual free spirit that smoked way too much. There is a small sex scene between her and Josh Lucas in the beginning of the film, which does not fit AT ALL. If Jennifer played Jean as a more sexual (even a little trashier, dare I say) with bigger flaws in her morale about sex, the scene would’ve made much more sense. I commend Jennifer for FINALLY playing a character with flaws, but I think she still could’ve dug a little deeper. In certain scenes you feel she walks through phoning in her lines, and in other scenes she shines and you almost want to hand her an Oscar. Many people gave her flack for looking way too glamorous to play this part. First of all, that’s ridiculous and we all need to stop thinking actresses need to ugly themselves to deliver a good performance. Jean was supposed to be beautiful. Jean wore lots of make-up, so Jennifer did too. There is dialogue that even indicated this “I think every customer we had today just came to get a glimpse of you.” Jennifer’s greatest work in this film includes hardly any dialogue at all; the scene in which she watches a couple argue from behind the restaurant.
The role of Jean Gilkyson dances on the line of being a lead character and a supporting character, which can easily be debated wither way. I’m going to go with supporting. Jean doesn’t go through a strong enough transformation to be considered a lead. At times, you feel her presence is only necessary for the sake of Einar to move on and offer forgiveness. A transformation from beginning to end is present, just not strong enough.
The love story between Jean and Crane is underdeveloped, as someone else on here stated.
All in all, a good film. Incredibly slow-paced and dull at times, but well done. It deserves to be considered by the Oscars, but it doesn’t deserve to win. As for the subject everyone’s talking about; Jennifer Lopez and an Oscar. No, she doesn’t deserve and Oscar for this film. Maybe possibly a nomination, but not Oscar-worthy. She’s on her way though, and this film is definitely a step in the right direction.
