Inspired, authentic storytelling
19 July 2007 | by See all my reviews

"Beautiful Dreamer" is one of those superbly magic, all-too-rare, inspired films that speak honestly to the viewer's heart.

(Since other comments posted here outline the plot quite sufficiently, I'm going to focus on its effect and value for me.) This classic story, supported by superb direction, authentic acting, and careful editing has no need for superstar names, over-the-top special FX, shock scenes, and other cheap (but ironically expensive) gimmicks other movies need to attract an increasingly jaded mass market audience. "Dreamer" is a movie made the way Hollywood used to make them, way back when Hollywood movies were truly enduring—when it was all about great story and character development, crafted by passionate, professional direction. I was born at a place and time very close to the movie's setting, in the late 1940's. Watching the story I was effortlessly transported back to those nostalgic childhood scenes I remember, and the real people I knew—so convincing was the finished product.

If you long for those bygone days of classic film making, this movie is especially made just for you—a film that speaks to those highest, noblest qualities that each of us possess: undiscouragable perseverance and unconditional love.

"Dreamer" may escape the sophisticated film critic's powers of appreciation, but for the genuine movie-goer seeking wholesome, inspired and uplifting entertainment, "Beautiful Dreamer" will hit YOUR mark, dead-on.
