Interesting Beautiful movie on grief and recovery
24 October 2004 | by (East Hampton, New York) – See all my reviews

I just returned from the Hamptons International Film Festival and wanted to comment on the film "Bereft".

This is a beautiful movie about a topic most American's know so little about and are very uncomfortable with "Grief from the loss of a Loved One".

Following the death of her husband, young fiancé Molly spends her time avoiding her grief. The movie was often beautiful to watch. The colors were somewhat exaggerated in many scenes, and the story was mesmerizing to follow.

Molly, unfortunately was a miscast. The actor who plays Molly is very young and beautiful. She is believable in this role. However, she doesn't capture her grief as well as the audience wants her to. Very few actors could do this. The only young actor that I could see in this role would be Claire Danes.

I loved the scenes where Molly would use a Polaroid camera to snap pictures "behind" her to capture her deceased husband in any glimpse.

Also, great camera stills and angle shots. Very thought provoking "Art Film".

Kudos to Tim Daly as Director and Producer. I give the movie a B+

:)
