fantastic
2 February 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This was a fantastic movie. I laughed and I cried. I have been quoting the lines with my friends for days since seeing the film. Saw it three times at Sundance! It is a must see! What movies used to be all about, without any special effects. Three cheers to the writer! I thought that Brendan did an excellent job playing Ludlow. His grasp of the character was great. I really felt for him, not being able to deal with change in his life. Alicia was a fantastic Myra. Her lines are quite memorable, as are her facial expressions. David's performance was also so very real. His shyness towards reaching out to a new person and his frustration with this relationship made so much sense. I really felt for the guy. Minor characters, played by Andrea and Jay were also fantastic. I still want to know the rest of the "Mark story." I hope everyone gets a chance to see this film, because everyone should love Ludlow!
