“Step Mom” & “The Rabbit Hole” meets “The Other Woman”.
THE OTHER WOMAN – CATCH IT ( B ) “Step Mom” & “The Rabbit Hole” meets “The Other Woman”. I think Step Mom is the best movie about the other woman and last year Rabbit Hole has emerged as the best movie ever about the Child Loss. In “The Other Woman” we see very nice amalgamation of both movies, though I’m not suggesting it’s a copy of those movies because besides the basic story line nothing is as it was in those two movies. Natalie Portman plays The Other Woman, who breaks a marriage, becomes a step mom and loss her first child in a year. Portraying all these three paces on the screen can be a difficult task but Natalie Portman does it with so ease that it’s truly commendable. Most of the times the Heroin has always been shown right but here we see that she is flawed and sometimes it’s really hard for her to accept where she is wrong. Natalie as lover, then wife, step mother and as grieving mother is simply amazing. On one side where the screenplay could have been tighten, Natalie’s performance and chemistry with little kid “Charlie Tahan” keeps us engaging. Charlie Tahan is amazing as he was in “Charlie St.Cloud”. Scott Cohen was good as an actor but somehow he lacked the charisma in front of Natalie Portman. Lisa Kudrow did well as always. Overall, good family movie with lots of emotions and drama. If you love Natalie Portman, watch it! You won’t be disappointed.
Love… and other impossible pursuits.
Love And Other Impossible Pursuits (horribly changed to The Other Woman) is based on a best-seller novel of the same name by Ayelet Waldman.
In the movie, Emilia (Natalie Portman) is a young, happy, beautiful and notorious lawyer that falls in love with Jack (Scott Cohen) the man who left his first wife Carolyn (Lisa Kudrow) to marry Emilia and also give himself some new colors in life. Jack and Carolyn have a young boy, William (Charlie Tahan), which have some difficulties to accept Emilia as a new member of the family and is always influenced by his mother’s tough thoughts and her lack of respect for Isabel’s death, the child Emilia and Jack lost few days after her birth. Carolyn also doesn’t accept the fact that her son will not have the paternal presence anymore but in the other hand can’t handle Emilia’s efforts to conquer William’s appreciation because all her tries fails with unintentional careless attitudes.
The movie hides from the audience when, why or how Isabel died till the last moment to intensify dramatic moments and give time to plot developments, which works but some elements in the book aren’t clear in the movie. The movie focuses her tough relationship with her stepson forgetting some of her problems about why she hates so much other places and people that surrounds her. Of course that we know that all her angry and hate are related to her loss, but seems like everything is just a result of her depression and not because all that she once loved remember somehow her child or her intense desires to be a perfect mother and wife with the man she loves deeply. And those are the other impossible pursuits the title talks about.
Don Roos is a great director who deals with the short thin line between human losses and the problems that come along with it, expressing human feelings in its real form never desperate to get tears from the audience with lame dramatic situations. His movies are always simple, linear and easy to understand but honest enough to make us considering how complex are human feelings and the relationship between them. That’s how he succeeds with titles like his acclaimed breakthrough The Opposite Of Sex (1998) and the less known but equally good Happy Endings (2005). But here seems that things are sometimes superficial enough as an ordinary drama that succeeds but could give us a little more than is given. When everything seems simple enough suddenly he tries hard more than is concerned like the Freud-ish analysis using Oedipus parallels and relationship transferring, adding nothing solid to the plot more than a few minutes plus of some unnecessary composition.
Natalie Portman is great for sure, apathetic and cold as the character is even when sometimes her character’s egocentrism and selfishness seems a little exhaustive. The same can be said about the other actors, specially Don Ross’ longtime collaborator Lisa Kudrow, that once more gives some comedic situations to relieve some melodramatic sequences but suddenly is able to transform a funny performance into an absolutely emotional and delicate situation. The example of Kudrow’s outstanding ability is obvious when she calls Emilia to explain the truth about Isabel’s death. That scene is fantastic in its simplistic form and what give us reasons to watch Don Roos movies from the beginning to the end.
A beautiful movie, sometimes corny but effective in its purpose.
