A Great Idea Translates Into A Decent Film!
Adapted from the book of the same name by Stephen McCauley, ‘The Object of My Affection’ rests on a great, novel idea, but somehow it falters, in its execution. Its certainly a decent film with good performances, but the idea deserved more.
‘The Object of My Affection’ Synopsis: A pregnant New York social worker begins to develop romantic feelings for her gay best friend, and decides she’d rather raise her child with him, much to the dismay of her overbearing boyfriend.
‘The Object of My Affection’ is about finding comfort in a partner, despite their sexuality. The protagonist here, pregnant & rather lonely, finds comfort & commitment in a gay man, to whom, she offers to father her child. Now, that’s a different way of looking at things, but its a great concept. The clichés of the hero & heroine are done away here & what is served here is a tale of love, despite both the sexes ever indulging sexually.
However, ‘The Object of My Affection’ is hurdled by an erratic Screenplay. The Late/Great Wendy Wasserstein’s Adapted Screenplay stagnates after a point. Of course, the lighthearted tone is wonderfully maintained & the film begins very well, but you wish the Writer had opted for a little more. The final 30-minutes, in particular, aren’t impressive enough. I wanted more of the interaction between the unlikely couple, rather than newer characters & their importance.
Nicholas Hytner’s Direction is fine. Cinematography is excellent. Editing is alright. Art & Costume Design are perfect. George Fenton’s Score is passable.
Performance-Wise: Jennifer Aniston and Paul Rudd are in complete form. Aniston is natural to the core & makes you feel for her love towards a man who isn’t attracted to her, while Rudd is magic as her companion, who also loves her, but just not the way she expects. Their on-screen chemistry, also, is easy. John Pankow is first-rate. Veterans Allison Janney & Alan Alda are adequate. Steve Zahn has a very small role, but he’s effective, as always.
On the whole, ‘The Object of My Affection’ isn’t as brave as it should’ve been, nonetheless, its a breezy watch.
Never mind the critics. This movie is a must see.
It’s amazing how this sensitive film can be realistic all the time. Although this is, indeed, a love story, there’s no need to give the viewer happy solutions just to make them fulfilled. Every second of the movie is real, every emotion, every fact. Justice to Jennifer Aniston and Paul Rudd. There’s an amazing cast here, including Mad About You’s John Pankow and veteran Alan Alda (all great) but the movie belongs to Jennifer and Paul. They make you think no one else could do a better portrait of Nina and George – they were born to do it. Anyone can relate to them at some point. Congratulations not only for the two, but also for the entire crew who made this movie – including, of course, the great sensibility of director Nicholas Hytner. A job well done.
