A road movie about finding a mother
This is a magnificent movie. It contains feel-good, ups and downs, laughter and tears, violence and kindness, love and lust. A lot of contradictions. The movie is a mirror of real life, like road movies should be. All actors are casted great. The scenery is philosophical and well chosen for the story. Especially the end is magical. Not in a fairy-tale way but in a way people should think about what fairy-tales are. The singing is beautiful, the acting is true, the girls are lovely, the mother too. I enjoyed every minute, every frame. The story takes you along and stays with you for a very long time. It’s an intense experience. Without spoiling it for future watchers: this is what life is all about. A philosophical approach of family and of love… The fabulous end is the answer to all questions.
No mere chick flick
What a beautiful, affecting story. Twin sisters from Holland, raised by gay fathers, travel to the US to help out the injured birth mother they’ve never met. One is serious, uptight, hardworking, career-obsessed; she has issues to work out with the misogynistic, belittling boss who undervalues her. The other is sunny, fun-loving, optimistic, family-oriented; she has issues to work out with her controlling, infantilizing husband. (Yeah, a bit of a Twilight Sparkle/Pinkie Pie dynamic.) The former has never let herself waste time wondering about their “womb,” while the latter has always had a bit of an obsession with her visions of their American hippie mom. Yes, there are rotten male characters (on top of the boss and husband, the sisters get assaulted by a despicable group of men outside a tavern), but they’re balanced by good ones, and the movie doesn’t shove any ham-fisted or misandrist messages down your throat. It’s ‘feminist,’ not obnoxious.
The film is carried by excellent performances from the three leading ladies. Carice is truly an extraordinary gem every single time–she’s impossibly beautiful AND irresistibly adorable (“cuteiful,” I daresay), crazy-good at acting and emoting, graceful, dainty, etc. Her natural wide-eyed innocence and vulnerability can also seep into a character just enough to render her more sympathetic in moments where perhaps the same role, filled by another actress, might not be. Everything she’s in is simply so much better than it would be without her. Jelka holds her own alongside her sister and Holly. And Holly? Is every bit as great as you’d naturally anticipate, in the role of the mother who’s definitely not what anyone expects. I found myself wondering whether these characters might in any way connect with the van Houtens’ real-life personalities and relationship.
It’s a journey of self-discovery, bonding, learning, love, and growth, and things develop quite interestingly as we learn more and more of Jackie. The drama is amped up by such debacles as running out of gas in the middle of the desert, a terrifying snakebite, being attacked by rapists, the sisters’ personal problems, and so on, while the end takes an unforeseen turn. I’d have liked it if both sisters got to do karaoke, since Carice sings wonderfully as well, but that’s not an inherent quibble with the script, which gave Sofie her own rewards. (And I will say that Jelka’s voice is particularly well-suited to country.)
This is also the kind of film whose glorious scenery and RV theme spark in me nostalgia for family vacations and road trips, and stoke my own sense of wanderlust. It’s gorgeous and should definitely be on people’s watchlists.
