Good but not great
1 December 2009 | by (Syracuse, NY) – See all my reviews

This movie is set in an English Literature graduate program at the University of Kentucky, and Bill, the main character, quotes from various classic works, creating a generally literate atmosphere. Which is a refreshing contrast to the standard Hollywood fare. The filmmakers certainly get an A+ for effort. But the emotional impact of the movie was less than intended, and it's not a film that will stick with me, despite it's lofty themes. Bill, the main character (portrayed by screenwriter Bruce Romans) is rather unsympathetic, even after he falls for the most substantial (and of course most attractive) female student in the program, Jane (Laura Allen). The poetry slams and scenes in classrooms are a bonus, as is a nice side story with Bill's best friend (Kevin Butler), who is also looking for True Love. Frank Langella provides heft as the stern but sincere professor. And Bill's family owns horses at Churchill Downs, so it was fun to see places I visited myself just last year. But all that is not enough to create a really satisfying film experience. I would recommend this movie to anyone looking for an alternative to tired Hollywood retreads, but keep your expectations in check.
