Natasha is a girl who believes in science and facts. Not fate. Not destiny. Or dreams that will never come true. She is not the type of girl who meets a cute boy on a crowded New York City street and falls in love with him. Not when her family is twelve hours away from being deported. Falling in love with him will not be her story. Daniel has always been the good son, the good student, living up to his parents' high expectations. Never a poet. Or a dreamer. But when he sees her, he forgets all that. Something about Natasha makes him think that fate has something much more extraordinary in store - for both of them. Every moment has brought them to this single moment. A million futures lie before them. Which one will come true?

I loved this film. I felt that it was more of a drama than a musical. It did seem to take a little longer to get to the climax than the musical. I feel that the musical had a better script and the characters were more developed. I feel that the characters had more depth and that they would have made the movie a little better. It is a pity that there was no music at the end of the film. Overall, I thought the movie was great.

It is an extremely powerful film that does not fall into the trap of how to show the life of a young woman, not necessarily the music of the other major characters but of the times and the soul of the generation that it is about. I could easily see it as the beginning of a new trend, but the film is not about the people and the music. It is about the music, and the people who love it. The film is very slow, but very inspiring. The music is the stars, the dialogue is the main thread. If you like great music and want to see a film that will change your life, then see it. It is also a good story about the true importance of music.

What I found refreshing about this movie was that it didn't pretend to be something it was not. It was too true to life. If it wasn't true to life, it was fun. The storyline was solid, but the message was too subtle. It was more of a look at a family's life than a whole movie. It also came with a little bit of a message, but it didn't seem to be focused on that. I think the movie is great, but it's a little bit of a let down when it comes to a whole lot of stuff. The acting was fine, the plot was decent. I would recommend this movie for a romantic night out with your friends. If you have to choose between two movies, I recommend this one over Star Wars, which was better.

Loved this film, thought it was a brilliant portrayal of true friendship, and was happy that all the actors did a great job. Very good job from all the cast, especially from John Hurt as the young Billy, he carried the film, he made the role his own. James Caan was the only one who didn't do a great job, he was so wooden, but it was still good. I'm not a big fan of musicals but I really enjoyed this film. I have to say I was very surprised at the critical reception, I didn't expect it to be this good. This is a must see film, and I would love to see it again, I have to give the Academy some credit.

We get the obvious message. The general plot is that Mark has committed suicide, but his close friends and family will not accept this. The film is written and directed by Benh Zeitlin, and he does a good job with the material. It is also well filmed, and well acted. I think that the biggest problem is that the film is somewhat forgettable. There is not a whole lot of substance to it, and it becomes less and less entertaining as the film goes on. I suppose it's probably not something that you want to watch over and over again, but it is a nice little piece of cinema. It is a bit like a warm, gentle song that is worth listening to, but nothing more. It's not a terrible film, but it's not a great film either. It's worth watching once, but it's not the masterpiece that it could have been.

Despite the bad press this movie has received, I would argue that it is one of the best biographical biopics of the 20th century. The movie focuses on actor and director Peter Sellers' life, and on his relationship with his late wife, writer and producer Isabelle Adjani, as well as with his best friend and the other prominent actors of the time, Charlie Chaplin and Alfred Hitchcock. The film is simply a wonderful biography. It is mostly a long and intricate look at his life, but also it is a look at his relationships and relationships with his family. It is fascinating to see his early years as an actor in the silent film era, as well as his early relationship with Adjani. He spent much of his time in the United States, and lived in various countries during this period, with some notable ones being Italy, Spain and France. The movie also contains a large amount of memorabilia from his life, such as his earliest plays, his early stage productions and even his costumes and cars. It also has great biographical information about Adjani and her family, and it is interesting to see how the film portrays her relationship with her husband, and how they reconciled after the divorce. This movie has been criticized for being a little too long, but I would say that it is as good as it gets. It is one of the best biographical biopics I have ever seen. I highly recommend it.

If you like romantic comedies, you should see this film. It's full of good acting and a nice story. I can't say that it's a great movie, but I liked it. I think it was an average movie, but it was interesting. I really liked it.

I had the chance to see this film at the New York Film Festival. The audience at the screening I attended was mostly made up of the female crowd, which is something I would have not expected. This is one of those movies that is a "go with the flow" kind of movie. You can tell that the writers and director knew they had a good script and what they had to work with. However, the script was not that strong. They had a good ending that you would have expected from the writers of "The Notebook" but it just didn't seem to match the rest of the movie. The lead actor, and the supporting actors did a great job of bringing the story to life. The cinematography, the sound design, and the acting were all excellent. This movie definitely deserves more attention than it got. I would recommend this movie to people who are interested in the themes of this film. The film is filled with themes and issues that people should be thinking about and discussing. It is not a perfect film but it definitely deserves more attention. I think it is a great film to see at the theater.

All of the previous reviews are not entirely correct. The movie was a strong story. It had all the elements of a great story. The music was good and kept the movie going. The story was not just about love but about life and death and how it affects people and how we can choose. It was not just about love. It was about love and friendship and death and what can be done about it. I love this movie.

Truly a film to watch over and over and over. How much you like or hate it will depend on your personal definition of what constitutes a good movie. This film is excellent. This is the first time I have ever seen a director of this calibre working with a top tier actress. The cast is outstanding, the costumes are exquisite. The characters are all interesting, all very sympathetic. However, the characters are not the focus of the film. This is where the film does suffer. The focus is the romantic relationship between the two leads. This is a very important part of the story, and I have to say that I found the romance between the two leads far more interesting than the characters themselves. For the most part, the romantic angle is a bit too forced. The film is good, but the ending was disappointing.

I think the cinematography and photography were excellent, but the storyline was just too boring to really enjoy. A couple of movies have gotten away with such a boring storyline and have been much better. The plot was a combination of several things that could have been put in a screenplay, but instead was set up in a simple outline of a romance, the best part of which was the fact that it was entirely predictable. It was the best part of the film because you could see that the main character had a crush on the older guy who was in love with her, but you could also see the older guy enjoying his younger girlfriend's company and the younger girl in the same situation being like "hey that's cool, lets be friends". The other part of the storyline was that the older guy was the one who was in love with the younger girl. It's like the older guy was the main character and she was the side character, except the two were never really friends. If it was just a romance and nothing more, I might have enjoyed it, but it was not. If I was given a second chance to watch the movie again, I would be much more patient and pay more attention to the writing of the story and less to the unnecessary sex scenes. It's just too bad that this movie got a 7/10 from me.

The new version of A Star is Born is not as great as the original, but it is still a great movie. It is filled with good actors and an original story. In the original the movie was a romantic love story, in the new version it is a love story between two rock stars and it does work out well. But they still kept the original's mystery and the ending was not as good. I was really surprised to find that they added a few details that the original's mystery did not have. Overall it is still a great movie, and it is better than the original. The only thing that is missing is the original's love story. 7 out of 10

I think the way the movie is set up is good, but I feel like the end was a little off, I think I was expecting something more out of it. Anyway, the plot itself is a little interesting. I really enjoyed the way the movie set up the love triangle between Tom, Caroline, and Cameron. It was just right. Tom, Caroline, and Cameron are all very likable characters, and the way they are all all in love with each other is really good. I think the plot was good, but the movie could've been better. It was just a little too obvious. The music was great, it kept the movie going all the way to the end. I think this is the kind of movie that you should definitely see.

A dazzlingly beautiful movie. The "star" of the movie is Greta Gerwig, whose performance was well-judged, yet I was reminded of Mel Gibson in "The Passion of the Christ" when the two actresses met each other in the very same scene. This was clearly a conscious choice by the screenwriter. I understand the movie was inspired by the real life story of Sharon Tate, but it is my opinion that the screenplay could have been better. The movie was a very enjoyable experience, but it could have been better if there was more focus on the acting and the story. The movie would have been better if there was a better script. I think it is only Mel Gibson's performance that was worth of the praise. At the end of the movie, the most important story was not important. There were several parts in the movie that were rather dull and uninteresting, and this was also reflected in the voting. It was a good movie, but it could have been better.

This is a great movie, and a nice movie to watch with the wife. The acting is great, and the characters are good. This is a movie that will make you think about it, and the music in the movie is great. I would recommend this movie to anyone.

A good film. It's also a good musical. It's a shame that they have completely messed it up.

Brittany photo

After watching this movie I just could not believe what I was seeing. Yes, the movie is really boring and the acting is not very good but the music is great. I recommend this movie for those who like music, and for the music lovers out there who want to see a great movie.

This is a film I didn't see coming. It's been almost a year since I saw the trailers and was intrigued by the plot and the actors in it. I was interested in seeing if the film would live up to the trailer and the hype. I was pleased. It's not an amazing film, it's not an outstanding film, it's just a well-rounded story about love, loss, and death. I'll admit, there are a couple of things I didn't like about it. I didn't like the idea of the plot moving forward at the same pace as the trailer. I didn't like that some of the elements were left out of the film. And it's a bit of a cliche to the story, I didn't like that the end was not as happy as it should have been. But it's still a good film that I enjoyed. I liked how it all unfolded and I liked the end result. There are some flaws, but overall I liked it. The film is a bit slow at times, but I understand that it takes time to develop the story and characters. I'm still waiting for the next movie in the series to come out, I hope they do.

The greatest thing about this film is the fantastic performances from Tilda Swinton, Sally Hawkins, and Christopher Plummer. It's a total hoot. If you like either of the three, I'd suggest giving this one a shot.

I know it's pretty cliche, but the script does not say this is a love story. So if you're expecting something like that, you're going to be disappointed. As I watched the movie, I kept thinking, "Didn't they say this is a romance, and this is what you're going to get?" I kept saying to myself, "No, no, no. This is a family drama. It's about a family who is facing hard times." I'm not saying that this is the best movie I've ever seen, but it was a good movie to watch. I would say this is worth watching, just because of the beautiful shots and music. I highly recommend it.

This is a movie I was really excited about after seeing the trailer. I'm not going to say anything about the plot or anything because I've seen so many reviews on here that I know it's going to be something that the audience will get. I just want to say that the movie is good, but it is not an amazing movie. I'm giving this a 7 because I felt it deserved a higher score because the film does have good performances, but it is not a perfect movie. The movie was shot beautifully and I really enjoyed the actors in the film. The story is not something you would expect to see, so I guess that is a good thing. It is a little slow in places but not too slow that you can't enjoy it. The music is not really a good choice because it is so beautiful and not a bad choice for a romantic drama. The movie is worth seeing, but if you have not seen the film yet, I would wait till it is on Netflix. I would recommend this to anyone that loves romance and is a fan of American Beauty.
