I really enjoyed the movie "November". I don't pretend to be an "intellectual snob" like some people who reviewed this movie - I just know what I like and what I don't. And I liked this movie. I thought the acting was terrific, the storyline intriguing and thought-provoking, and the film visually very haunting. I would recommend it to anyone - anyone that is who wants to go to a film and "think" about it afterward! I especially enjoyed the use of light and sound to convey the storyline and to move the plot along. The scene's that were I think the most interesting were the one's that kept repeating with different results - i.e. the trips to the counselor and dinner with Sophie's Mother (the terrific Anne Archer). Also, I thought that Courntney Cox gave a great measured performance. It was refreshing to see her play against type and appear in so bold a film. In conclusion, I would love to see this movie again - I believe it is a film to be watched over and over, and each time you would get so much more out of it. I look forward to owning it eventually on DVD. But I would recommend anyone who has the opportunity to see it on the large screen, since it would obviously be so much more effective that way.
