A Certain Charisma
18 March 2011 | by (eugene, or) – See all my reviews

It isn't easy to admit that only a movie's charm has won you over, but that seems the case here. I got lost along the way, but derived some much pleasure from the many qualities of this film that I'm certain I'll want to see it again It deserves the attention because perhaps it was my length of tooth (a film devotee for almost eight decades) that got me offtrack. Anyway, the parallel story lines (if that's what they indeed are) threw me a curve-ball. So offtrack did I get that I was adamantly wanting to know why the hell Joseph Gordon-Leavitt and his yellow tee were so inseparable. Suffice it to say that this day in the lives of Gordon-Leavitt and his charismatic and talented girlfriend here, Lynn Collins, is worth spending with them. The simple but interwoven plots have the young and in love couple spending idyllic time with her family for part of the day, and finding more adventure than they bargained for in downtown Manhattan, where our hero finds a cellphone at the scene of a fatal shooting that unwinds before the couple's and our eyes. That they find a stray dog, take it in, and care for it, suggests warmly that we're sharing time with good people. The cellphone, it turns out, belongs to a shady character who will pay a king's ransom to get it back. Therein lies the key to a coin flip on the Brooklyn Bridge. Not one to always need endings ironed out neatly, I was more than satisfied to see these two young, likable people agree to adjust to what lie before them, A hardly minor occurrence, too, on this day, is that she announces her pregnancy. As a couple, this pair is magical. Finding out they ad-libbed dialogue was intriguing here. Unlike others who commented negatively, I thought their input natural and articulate. I'll take the blame for my confusion out of the director's hands. That he merits, for having gotten so much so entertainingly on the mark.
