A beautiful Narrative
With an excellent cast and compelling storytelling, Sidney Hall takes us through three different time periods of the main character’s life and does a great job interweaving the different periods and gives us a deeper look into the character as the story progresses.
The film has an epic yet grounded feel to it, and one can’t help but root for and feel for the characters. I was emotionally affected by the film, but also had moments of laughter peppered in too. The cinematography was beautiful and there are lots of surprises along the way, and they all pay off.
The entirety of the cast give great performances. Nathan Lane is in his element and the moments between Michelle Monaghan and Logan Lerman cut deep. Elle Fanning and Blake Jenner hit heavy with their characters, showing all is not as it always seems on the surface.
Kyle Chandler and Logan Lerman really go for it and dig deep, and their scenes together really shine.
I found myself laughing and crying throughout the film and am really happy to see that these types of films are being made. If you like stories that make you think and really dig deep, go watch this film.
Critics got it wrong!
I’ll preface by saying I watch an inordinate amount of movies and I never leave reviews. I had to post since this has to be one of the worst & most inaccurate critic scores I’ve seen.
