A glimpse of Paradise
15 November 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

As someone who is a major fan of Diablo Cody's I wasn't entirely let down. But I also wasn't fully satisfied either. Cody's directorial debut lacks a sort of flare that Juno and Young Adult have. This is not a bad movie, it's just not what I expected from someone with such talent. The acting was great but the supporting characters could have used a little more back story. I'd say that it is still worth the watch. There's some funny one liners and the plot is something new and refreshing. The good news is, when Diablo finally finds her directing niche, it will hit the nail in the head. With a little more practice, Cody will definitely coin another fantastic film. Overall, not her best work, but also a hell of a lot better than most of the garbage that's being made today. Go watch it!
