The only reason i watched Passionada at first was because it had one of my favorite actors, Jason Isaacs. Honestly, i was a bit bored at the beginning, but midway through i was entranced. All the actors gave amazing performances, my favorite being that of the rebellious daughter, played by Emmy Rossum. She really is talented, and even her minor performances blow me away. Sofia Milos was truly beautiful and had a perfect performance. Her grandmother added humor and charisma. Finally, Jason Isaacs gave another great performance in the first movie i have seen where he wasn't a villain or a drag queen. He really shows his range in this film. Although the plot could definitely use some help, the cast is what kept this movie going. I guess it has everything, romance, comedy, and drama, as well as beautiful songs sung by Milos's character. The cast is the main reason why i watched the movie all the way through.
