I'm for Em and Jay in acting stakes
5 December 2012 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Em 4 Jay is not a film that's gonna win any awards. The lead performances are great in the fact they are believable, like the ones in Shot Of Love. But more so, these are better. Two heroin addicts, lovers, hold up a few shops, in pig masks, one of the same shops, they initially hold up without the masks, or proper guns, (heroin makes you do stupid things). Their lives are indeed sad, especially the girl, who hooks up with her sister, and breaks down, crying in shame. This movie basically shows the lives of heroin addicts over a couple of days, and what happens where more desperate situations require greater measures. The girl constantly nods off, like went they go to a ferry/restaurant, of higher class, than they're genuinely accustomed to. The girl even strips and makes out with her boyfriend in front of company for more bucks. You can't help feeling sorry for these two. Some people are just losers in this life, that's the reality of this movie, it's ending sad and tragic, but too an ending that is better for our couple. There's just not enough filling of story in this movie, but it's still very likable. I hope these two actors go to Hollywood and really become identities.
