Justin Timberlake composed great music for his wife's Jessica Beal's movie.
22 January 2017 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

It's a fairly good movie staring Tim Hanks wanna be Jason Sudeikis as a man who just lost his wife (Played by Jessica Beal) in a car crash. In order to cope with the lost, he helps a young troubled teenager built a raft.

It does feel like another one of these movies that seems to work as a test flight for Jason Sudeikis, it's about time he got this plane off the ground with more major releases. I think he's there, but I guess the rest of the world is not so sure.

The Book of Love is definitely up his alley as it's a little weird but very charming, and though it's a fun picture, I've seen Sudeikis appear and more solid efforts like Tumbledown.

What stands out mostly in this movie is Justin Timberlake's turn as a film composer. He's been doing this a lot lately with such movies as Trolls (as music supervisor), which makes more sense to a pop music icon like JT, but this movie showed that he was serious about the gig as the score really landed the mood of the whole film.

Jessica Beal had a small but important part in the film that makes you want to know more about the character she's playing. I guess being the producer was good enough over needing a bigger role.

Overall, I say that I did like the film, but Jason Sudeikis has stared in similar films that are better.
