Audio/ Visual ideas & goings on.
The ideas were there and the foundations of a good heart-warming story were present. It was just in the narrative & performance that lacked the sparks of meaning and sentiment that would have made it great. This is sad for me to say as I am a big fan of Anne Hathaway and Jake Gyllenhaal.
There were some touching moments in which Hathaway played out the real despair that she was facing in the early stages of Parkinson’s disease. This plus the gratuitous nudity throughout made it a little more than the usual ‘rom-com’, but not much more. The scenes seemed placed without any junction or passing leading to some scenes being redundant and without purpose to the plot, development or emotion.
Overall, I was expecting a better, more emotional watch then I got. Instead cliché characters, plot and even locations that lead this movie to be a bore.
