However, good performances from the cast and great to see Mira Sorvino in something recent. I do look at her and see Romy, though, can't help it! Please say that's not how Romy wound up!

The opening scenes in the club are also interesting and leave you wondering exactly what's going on.
Once she meets the elderly gentleman, it becomes a little less intriguing, but I still liked it.
My complaints echo others - a little too abrupt to end and would have liked a little more tied up or explained. For example, did she sort her life out? What happened to the old man at the window?
However, I get that this is more art than blockbuster, and like real life, maybe didn't have a clear ending or resolution.
Interesting more than good. Have liked Lucky McGee since May, so had… MoreInteresting more than good. Have liked Lucky McGee since May, so had to get this.
Don't quite know what I sat and watched, but somehow not too surprised by that!
Looks great for a low budget movie. Liked the cheerleaders and the goth character.
Sort of works even though it's a wtf type of movie. Will probably watch this one again and see if it becomes any clearer.
Actually, kind of dull. I was interested to see this one, but I found… MoreActually, kind of dull. I was interested to see this one, but I found it patchy and not detailed enough. Particularly in his personal life it jumps around an awful lot.
Ashton does an okay job. I'm not his biggest fan, but he pulls it off, particularly in his later years, would actually not have recognized him. He manages to tone the ham right down, thankfully.
It's an okay movie. One to watch once and forget about.

Set mostly in 1987, this was a winner for me straight away for the nostalgic feel. Very realistic to the time period, but not kitschy or bright as often happens in an 80's set movie made today. Quite dull colours (but nice) and looked like a realistic small town setting.
Voiced over by a young teenage boy, Henry, who lives with his mother, Adele, who has had some trauma in her past, which is revealed slowly in flashbacks throughout the movie. Adele rarely leaves the house, but on the pairs once monthly visit to the supermarket for supplies, they meet Frank, who is an escaped murder.
Frank makes some loosely implied threats to Henry to convince Adele to take him home so he can hide out.
Slowly, Adele falls in love with him, which sounds creepy as hell, but actually it works.
Hard one to describe, but beautifully shot and cast. Well worth a watch.
Ending was a little flat - I really expected a big comeback, but… MoreEnding was a little flat - I really expected a big comeback, but actually it went full circle to the beginning of the movie. Hard work, nice things, nice family, time poor.
Parker Posey as Susan is the boss from hell - mentally unbalanced, driven, enough to do your head in, quite honestly. Watching Pete get sucked into her web was horrifying.
I can see why this wouldn't be the most popular movie, but it's well done and I enjoyed the various characters and office politics.
Starts off okay, had high hopes, but average in the end. Not awful,… MoreStarts off okay, had high hopes, but average in the end. Not awful, but not memorable either. Kind of a gay American Pie feel to it, but the sequels, not the original cast ones. Okay for the free rental it was, but not a movie I would buy or rewatch. If you like teen movies, and it's free on TV, you might not find it a total waste of an hour and a half.
Okay, I'll admit it, I was one of many sniffling in the cinema. Moving… MoreOkay, I'll admit it, I was one of many sniffling in the cinema. Moving look at first love and loss. Though it's aimed at a teen audience, I suspect many older women would enjoy this too.
Chloe Grace Moretz is excellent in this role as an 18 year old aspiring cello player who falls in love with a rock musician. Her ex rocker parents are also good characters and well cast.
Then comes the car crash which takes everything away and perhaps even her life.
Really wasn't sure I would like this, but I did.
So many thoughts - definitely not what I expected.
Hated the father… MoreSo many thoughts - definitely not what I expected.
Hated the father and son in this - just couldn't wait to see the wild woman get them.
Very disturbing story about an outwardly perfect family and what daddy really does for kicks.
Don't want to say more an ruin it for anyone.
