On Labor Day (just yesterday Sept. 5,2011) I got out of work early and decided to go see a movie for the first time in 6 months.
When I got to the theatre I had chosen,there wasn't much of a choice. Mostly kid stuff and violent movies. I narrowed it down to Columbiana and this movie.
I read on the movie poster that Columbiana is about revenge and I really wasn't in the mood for that. So,seeing this was Rated G,I decided to give it a chance. I grew up in the 70s when G meant either sugary or too "kiddish".
This movie is none of that. It is absolutely perfect movie making and storytelling. This film walks an incredible tightrope of telling a serious story,while still making it entertaining and most of all....covering serious emotions in a G rated format.
Duvall is spectacular as is the supporting cast. They behave a genuine people and display real emotions,without getting too sweet about it or seeming to angry or negative in other scenes.
The most violence is the main character's car wreck. He smashes into a wooden fence and busts the rear window of his car. There's also a slight "fight" between him and two other guys. They push and shove each other mostly but that's about it for violence though.
I know some here think that the film has "religious overtones". It's not about "religion" it's about having faith in your own self as well as the man upstairs.
The point is,were given a great gift of being able to think and act out of our own thoughts and choices and will. How we manage them is up to us. Also that we tend to make too big a deal out of things that are supposed to define who we are,in the eyes of others.
What's important,is how we measure ourselves inside,not other people. This is the main point the story is telling us. I give 10 stars,without a doubt and ....I may even see it again!
Please , see 7 Days In Utopia,you won't be sorry! (END)
