This film is by far the most creative work I've seen by James McAvoy and was truly the catalyst for me to start writing reviews on here. This film is about how the breakdown of a relationship, whether it be physical, emotional or financial can have a profound effect on everyone. The film is about the consequences of making a mistake and how the actions that are taken after it is discovered can have a profound impact on the lives of those involved. The film is told through the life of Jamie, a divorced and widowed father who discovers that his wife has recently started having an affair and comes to a decision that can change his entire life. I have seen the film twice and I really loved this film. It is wonderfully realistic and sensitive and truly tells an emotionally powerful story. The story is beautifully told and the characters are so well acted. The performances were really amazing, James McAvoy was brilliant as was the character of Sebastian. What really impressed me about the film was the acting by the rest of the cast. I would like to mention the performance of William H Macy who played John who really played a great part in the film. The scene where he was in the elevator was one of the best scenes I have ever seen in a film. The film was definitely very emotional and really had me on the edge of my seat. I would definitely recommend this film to anyone who loves to enjoy a film that is unique and really brings a unique story to the screen.

This is a compelling and captivating movie. There are some fabulous supporting performances from Patricia Arquette, Ann Dowd, and Virginia Madsen. Even Richard Jenkins and Derek Jacobi do their best with what they have to work with. The cinematography is gorgeous, and the soundtrack is very good. I love how this film plays like an episode of The Wire, but this is not a character study about a black Baltimore cop who is motivated by race or anything else. There are some great subplots about the city itself and its people. But the movie is best viewed as a piece of art. I think the real secret to the film is that it is so personal and personal stories are better than character studies. All in all, this is a great movie that will have you on the edge of your seat for the entire duration. It is one of the few movies that I can truly recommend to everyone. It is certainly worth your time and money.

I wasn't expecting too much from this movie, but I was actually quite impressed. It is really interesting and, for once, I actually felt that I understood the movie. There is a lot of artistic photography and a lot of that was really very well done. The story is nothing new but the style is beautiful. I think there are a lot of things that could have been better but that is not what I'm judging the movie for. It is a movie that I will definitely be buying on DVD, to have in my collection.

Werner Herzog, for the most part, was able to keep the audience with the story that he wanted us to follow. The problem with this film is that the film does not bring us in on the emotional side of the story. For the most part, the film is an exploration of human nature and the way we deal with each other and with the world. There is no "What if" factor to keep us engaged. One can tell that Werner Herzog is one of the most interesting people alive and that is the main reason this film does well. This film is an exploration of one man's search for meaning and his search for God. The man will tell you what you want to hear, but when you listen to him, you don't really believe what he says. The most interesting character in the film is our God, his son. As he is the closest thing to God, you can't help but be drawn to him. And when he is not there, you feel that he has been removed from the picture. You feel lost when he is not there. I enjoyed this film very much because I was drawn to it.

These were the best moments of my evening, without a doubt. But it wasn't until the last 15 minutes that I felt a little lost. I felt lost in a society that I did not fully understand. I was thinking about all of the people around me. But I was so immersed in the story, it didn't matter. It was fantastic!

I would have not watched this film, without knowing the plot. I would have missed out on many scenes and messages and comments from other people that made the film so outstanding. I would have missed out on the fact that most of the actors and actresses are not Hollywood, but they were believable. I also would have missed the director's comment on human nature. There were many messages in this film and not all of them were helpful, but there were some. I recommend watching it. It is well worth it.

The movie was great. If you are looking for a romance movie, then this is it. If you are looking for a realistic movie with a great plot, then you might find it difficult to watch this movie. But I really enjoyed it. It is about a man named Daniel Duchamp. He was a famous painter, who died in a very old age. The end of his life is quite sad. He just didn't have the energy to paint anymore. So, he decided to paint something new. His new canvas is a hotel in San Francisco. It is called Providence. This is a very different story to the one I usually see on the screen. It is very realistic and very beautiful. There is also a good message in the movie. It shows that you should not wait for something good to happen to you, but you should always try to do the best you can.

In my opinion, this film will never make it to the Oscars. I would have to say this is the worst performance from an Oscar nominee ever. Its an effort that is not to be taken seriously and a complete waste of time. The film revolves around a pair of New York City law students, Peter (Christian Bale) and Vincent (Aaron Eckhart) who are looking to get married and find a nice home. Their primary goal is to not let the inevitable time pass them by, and find a home that fits them and their life together. Vincent is happy with his current home, but for some reason the couple are considering a second home in Providence, Rhode Island. The house is really nice and looks nice, but is also a half mile away from the couple's regular residences. One of the attorneys, Gary (Miles Teller), who represents the couple has received an alarming call from a young man who has broken into his home and has been sexually assaulting the couple's dog. While investigating, Vincent discovers that the young man was also the one who stole the woman's purse and fled the scene. The couple believe that the stolen property will be the cure for their dog's illness, and they must leave the house. During this time, the couple is having marital problems and trying to get along with each other. Peter is looking for a baby, and he feels that his current wife should have the child, but Vincent is not ready to commit. The couple have no money, and do not want to leave the house to pursue other options. At the same time, the husband has been having sexual relations with the wife, and he feels that the situation will only get worse. What Peter and Vincent don't know is that the couple is a part of a killer conspiracy, and the young man is the face of the entire crime. Now, the couple is searching for answers to the mystery and for a place to move. Peter and Vincent begin to find a certain home that is right for them and their lives. The best part about this film is the performances. Christian Bale and Aaron Eckhart deliver excellent performances that makes the film worth watching. Bale delivers a very brooding performance and is the center of the film. Aaron Eckhart's performance is very similar to that of his performance in the upcoming "Sideways". The film is quite depressing, and the characters are not all likable. I think this film will be forgotten, but I will still recommend it to my friends. "In the Night Time" was a disappointment, and this film is definitely the worst in my opinion. I do not recommend this film to anyone, and I will be advising everyone that doesn't like this film to not watch it.

While it is only a TV movie, the film is well acted by Meryl Streep, Russell Crowe, Tom Cruise, Nicole Kidman, etc. and some of the scenes with Colin Farrell are quite interesting. It is a love story and the last scene was very moving. The movie was well written. It was a great movie for the entire family. If you liked Star Trek: Generations you will love this movie.

This was a great film. Well acted and thought provoking. I went to see it with a friend who is a doctor and i think she was right on the money. The pacing was very good, and i thought the script was very clever, the ending was also brilliant, and the characters were all well drawn and portrayed. In the end, it was the story that mattered, and this film delivers. The director does an amazing job, and the cinematography was beautiful, and the score, well. the theme is one of the best i have heard in the last 5 years. The actors all did a great job, and the cast were all very believable. I would recommend it to anyone who wants a great story, some good laughs, and has an open mind. Enjoy!

Shane Carruth is one of those directors that brings new concepts to the big screen. In the case of "The Cornhusker Kick-off", he uses the theme of football to tell the story of a small town in Kansas and its struggles with the success of football. The movie follows the rise and fall of a small town football team, and then depicts the corruption that was in place. This movie has a very real feeling to it. It was very uplifting. The cinematography was incredible. You can tell that the film was made in the 70's, and yet still feels so contemporary. "The Cornhusker Kick-off" is definitely a must see.

A personal favorite. The cinematography is quite stunning. The relationship between the two main characters is beautiful. It is great that the director chose a low budget (some places, even the basic budget of a movie theatre is quite high). The acting is also great. The soundtrack is great as well. It shows the feeling of the movie quite well. The only thing I don't like about this movie is the plot. It is a good plot, but it could have been done a little better. However, I do not believe that it is a bad movie. In fact, I think it is the best movie I have ever seen. It is a masterpiece. But, I am not a hard core movie lover. I was bored for a couple of minutes when I saw it, but I was just like "Oh. Okay. I get it now." But that is just my opinion. In any case, I would recommend this movie to anyone who wants to see a good story or to someone who is not very picky about movies. 8 out of 10 stars.

When I saw the previews for "Sevier", I got the impression that this would be a very similar film to "Philomena" but "Sevier" was anything but the same. The movie was less of a love story and more of a romance with characters in which one loves someone else without even trying. The characters in "Philomena" were overly-relaxed and contained little emotional emotion and seemed so great in comparison to the people in "Sevier". In the first half of the movie I was very much attached to each character but then I really started to lose interest in the two characters and how they lived their lives. The second half of the film is a very different story. There are a lot of interesting character development that kept me interested and at the same time I was trying to figure out what exactly was going on. I'm a huge fan of genre films but I believe that the best story in this movie is the relationship between Benjamin and Jonathan. If you have read this blog for a while and haven't seen it, go rent it and you'll know what I'm talking about. If you're interested in the drama genre, you may want to skip this one. The acting is good. All of the actors in the movie really pulled their weight in this movie and especially Rachel Weisz and Jack O'Connell. The script is great. I really liked this movie. However, if you're looking for a film with a good story or action, then I recommend "Sevier". It's definitely worth seeing, but if you're looking for something with a great story and some romance, I don't recommend "Philomena".

I was looking for a film that I could watch on a quiet evening, while not getting too bogged down with the movies I had in the queue, I came across this film. And I was glad to be in the minority of people who loved it. To begin with, it is not a typical film with a plot that will catch your eye, or even bother you. It is more of a journey, which only becomes more so as it progresses. It starts off well, but after a while you find yourself thinking: "What is going on? Why is he doing this? Where are they going?" But, in the end, you understand why, and feel the need to watch it again. I am not going to write a long story about it, as it will already be written, but it is worth watching.

A good movie. Best actor in my opinion. A must watch.

I watched this movie on a bus on my way to work. I was pleasantly surprised. This is a movie about a woman who is dying from cancer and she is on the other side of the country. She meets a nice young guy in Texas and then in the end they have a baby. The movie is very romantic and cute, and there is a great chemistry between the two characters. The movie was very suspenseful and I was expecting it to be a very romantic story. However, I found the ending very sad. However, it is a good movie. If you like a good romantic story then you should see this movie.

This is a beautiful and touching film about family and friends. The idea of a sibling vs. brother relationship in childhood is interesting, and it is depicted very well. The acting was good as well. This movie is not for everyone, but it is good.

I was very much expecting this movie to be a typical love story, which is what you'd expect from a lesbian love story, but I was pleasantly surprised by the emotional aspect of this movie. It was very well done and showed how the two main characters had bonded in the past and how they were trying to rekindle their love for each other. It also showed a lot of the difficulties that they had overcome in their past relationships and how they have come to accept and love each other. The ending was very powerful and was very sad, which I really liked. There were a lot of subplots that were very good and I loved that they were all tied together. I didn't know the ending was going to be that sad and unexpected, but it was really good and gave me a happy ending, which I didn't think I'd see in a lesbian love story. Overall, I really enjoyed this movie, but I have to say that the only thing I didn't like was the ending, but I guess that's a personal choice.

The other day, I read a review that mentioned how much I enjoyed watching this movie. That reviewer was wrong. The first half of the movie is pretty slow, but the final third of the movie is a well done movie, with some amazing scenes and a fine performance by the cast. I was happy to see Ethan Hawke, who played the protagonist, being so true to his character, a complex and conflicted character. I also enjoyed seeing the father, who had long ago realized his son's sexuality and acted accordingly. The father, played by John Hawke, is a good example of someone who could take pride in his son, but could also be guilty of showing concern and love to him. This is a great movie that also deals with some issues that can happen in real life, like abuse, mental illness, and the impact that being gay, or gay in a family can have. This is definitely a movie that I would recommend to anyone. This is a well done movie, with some beautiful shots of New York City. 7/10.

James Franco is good in the film, he really does seem to be in the character. The acting is mostly solid, with the exception of a few areas where it seems like he's struggling to get a good tone or feel. Some of the dialogue could have been much better, and some of the plot points are not as simple as they could be. Overall it's an entertaining film that doesn't really go as far as it could have, but it does have a lot going for it.

I did not expect this to be the best movie of the year. I knew that the acting was very good, and the cinematography was fantastic, but when I heard the name of Ethan Hawke I thought that this was not going to be good. I was very wrong, this movie blew me away. It was very intelligent, very stylish, and not too long. I think that this movie is one of those movies that everyone should see. It really has everything, and I can't wait to see it again, this is a movie that I'll remember.

I read this book several times, and I really didn't like the movie. This is the story of a man who, although he is in love with his wife, finds himself in the throes of jealousy and a battle between his desire for her and his need for revenge. The movie is about a young man who has to survive in the unforgiving world of the military, where the only way to find a proper place in life is through fighting and dying. The script is top notch. The cinematography is superb, and the performance of the two actors is spot on. The real star of the show is Ben Foster. He is truly an actor to be reckoned with, and the way he portrays the man he is supposed to be playing is incredible. This is definitely not an easy film to watch, it's got the gritty look of war, the amazing power of vengeance, and the absolute drama of the lives of the characters. The last scene of the film is very powerful, and is very real and haunting. The way Ben Foster's character is so intent on winning his wife back, and the way he moves towards that goal is simply amazing. I would have given the film an 8/10, but I am very, very glad that I watched the movie twice to get the full value of it.

Michael Shannon is truly one of the most talented actors working today. His portrayal of Roger Waters is perfect and perfect in a way that you can't help but be completely consumed by. As Roger Waters, Michael was able to give one of the best performances of his career. He gives one of the most emotional, heartbreaking and convincing performances of any actor of his generation. I can't say enough good things about Michael's acting. It is a performance that is truly magical and unforgettable. In my opinion, I think he is one of the best to ever come out of Hollywood. If you're going to see this movie, you should definitely see it at the theater. This is one of the movies that really makes you want to go out and see it on the big screen. It's worth seeing on the big screen. This is one of those movies that you feel like you just came out of a movie theatre and you just want to go home and you know you shouldn't be home. Because of this, I have made it a point to buy this movie. I bought it on VHS from a friend and it is great! I wish I could see this movie on the big screen.
