Inspiring comedy/drama - Yes - Dramedy!
26 January 2015 | by See all my reviews

When a cast of stars come together, interest is, inevitably, garnered. Most people do a double take at the poster anticipating the possibilities that a powerful ensemble can bring, much like the excitement basketball fans feel when all-stars join together in the off-season to create a superteam.

However, this excitement is not without trepidation: many times have ensemble films, and for that matter superteams, failed to reach the level of success anticipated at their conception. There are times when everything goes right--when the cast on screen makes everything better and is not fighting over the proverbial ball.

Reach me is a film that gets it right. Films like Crash and Two Days in the Valley (the later of which was written and directed by John Herzfeld) are good representations of the quality of Reach Me, and thus any film lover should be able to appreciate what Reach Me will bring to them. Namely, inspiration, understanding, and a look behind the curtain at real people, who struggle and persevere like anybody else.

The story: without spoiling anything, Reach Me is about self help book written by a mysterious author, which, through its strong message brings an unlikely cast of characters together, their stories interweaving and building a wonderfully moving narrative. These people are all rich characters who learn to and desire to better themselves. The effect wad not only felt by the characters but also by me, as I left the theater feeling nourished. I found that I couldn't stop smiling after seeing this movie, and I really felt like I had gained something after this film, I don't know what, but I do know that this movie was inportant.

I want to stress the quality of writing and filmmaking in Reach Me. Director John Herzfeld has masterfully woven a tapestry through this film. He has created a movie that is thought- provoking, emotional, inspirational, and at the same time witty and entertaining. Very few filmmakers can marry art and entertainment so harmoniously, and yet Herzfeld does just that. This film is hilarious and clever and it's also inportant, from an existential point of view. I highly recommend Reach Me to everyone, although I believe those who have experienced real life would be more receptive to this movie. If you're on the fence, hop off and go see Reach Me, you'll be better for it.
