The film has some real strengths
30 July 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I thought that they did a remarkably good job with this variation on the theme of "A Star is Born." There are three main ingredients that combined to make this twisted fairy tale believable.

First, with only few minor rolls, none of the characters were completely despicable nor completely sympathetic.

Second, Elsa Pataky's physical appearance. She always looks appropriate in ways that I would not have thought possible. Most of it is good acting, but there is also skillful makeup and wardrobe.

Finally, the sets and locations are impressive and believable. The humorous exception, here, is their rechristening of the Beverly Hills Hotel as the "Everly Hotel". It looks like there should be a "B" hidden behind the foliage.

Incidentally, there are a few unexpected twists and turns along the way, as well as few more-or-less predictable "surprises."
