Realism was not the point. You could understand how she is afraid of getting hurt by love, and how the plan she has revised to protect herself seems to make perfect sense, while at the same time you know she is not gonna be able to go through with it. I won't spoil it, but the ride to the end was worth it. As his would-be suitor, young Lily Collins is an able foil to Lerman's advances and wins over the audience with her sharp wit. This is not about whether you are too young to be a published author at the age of 19, or whether it's feasible to carry around an amount of pot enough to make a salad.
Realism was not the point. He still holds a torch for her, as well, an intensely personal plot device that could easily lack credulity in the hands of lesser professionals. Here, he's a self-assured, bright college student who is destined to charm Samantha off her feet. The casting was great, as was the plot and story line. Greg Kinnear is William Borgens, the classic what-have-you-done-for-me-lately author who hasn't had a hit in ages but refuses to allow anyone to sense his self-pity. He falls for the beautiful, but troubled Kate and gets his first taste of love and a broken heart. I love Kinnear and would love him to just do something a little bit more interesting and out of his comfort zone.
It's simple, it's sweet, it's good stuff. William Borgens is an acclaimed author who hasn't written a word since his ex-wife Erica left him 3 years ago for another man. The movie went fast and even though you hoped for a happy ending, you weren't quite sure how it was going to turn out. Logan Lerman was well Logan Lerman. Samantha's story was the most relatable for me.
The adults who anchor the film deserve far more credit than they're given. But the most impressive performances come from our younger stars. He may be down on his luck but retains the earnestness that brought him fame and a loving family not that long ago. This category is specifically for films that make you feel good, make you shed a tear or two and are full of cliches. Samantha's story was the most relatable for me.
Bright lighting belies the turmoil beneath the surface. His two children, Sam and Rusty, played by Lily Collins and Nat Wolf have responded to the divorce in different ways and the film follows all four characters as they fall in and out of love. Now on to the acting which I think was rather good. It makes you wanna go and get lost in a book, it reminds you of that feeling when you read something you love, something that completely absorbs you. In fact, to some extent, that's true as the dialogue's authenticity is at least partly rooted in Boone's generosity in allowing the actors to improvise some of their material a technique favored by the aforementioned David Gordon Green, as well.
All inhabit their roles as if they created them. Nat Wolff was amazing, a promising new talent, and I am waiting to see what he does next! The script written by, and directed by Josh Boone new comer is cliched to say the least. Rusty, also a believer in love, tries to pursue his crush Kate Liana Liberato. The fact that he can convincingly portray both these characters in two pictures at the same festival is testament to his talent and versatility. I didn't necessarily find his characters a refreshing and new character, although I found he played the part extremely well.
I feel like he really excelled in the whole second kid syndrome. William and Erica's children; Samantha Lilly Collins and Rusty Nat Wolff are also aspiring writers going through different phases of love. In between spying on Erica and casual romps with his married neighbour Tricia, Bill is dealing with the complexities of raising his teenage children Samantha and Rusty. In the meantime, the love of books is perpetrating the film. I think her character was more interesting, she played the douche bag girl which was interesting as it's usually the douche bag guy. The father's story was for me the least intriguing, but still okay. In between spying on Erica and casual romps with his married neighbour Tricia, Bill is dealing with the complexities of raising his teenage children Samantha and Rusty.
The little written lines in the character introduction part were also a nice touch. Wolff, in particular, takes advantage of this opportunity to add a good deal of the narrative's comic relief with his ad-libbed lines. . This is not about whether you are too young to be a published author at the age of 19, or whether it's feasible to carry around an amount of pot enough to make a salad. Boone was truly fortunate to have Orr on board. Lilly Collins most notably turns in the strongest performance as a young woman who is struggling between different types of love, the ability to return love with her pursuer Louis, and the love her mother is trying to earn back. That's key to this ensemble that features many of our best and brightest young independent film actors.
