A bold and promising storyline slips and falls flat on its face in a slobbery puddle of false sentiment, never to get back up on its feet. End of story.
Teenage adoration meets paranoia. This long-winded story doesn’t get interesting until the last half hour. Very good musical score.
Weird, detached, philosophical, stays interesting every second.
Endearing. “Falling slowly” definite goosebump material.
Touching story, with the troubles in a dysfunctional family slowly unfolding. And that’s where the problem with this movie lies: it’s very long-winded. Hathaway proves herself to be capable of much more than girly movies.
