The Sublime and Beautiful is an exquisitely moving film.
Rarely, am I so moved by watching a film that I feel compelled to write a review. The Sublime and Beautiful is just that kind of a rare gem of a movie. Blake Robbins, has created an exquisitely moving and excellently written and directed film. Grief and loss are themes in many, many films and so very few of them honestly and believably explore those subjects. And, even less often, have deftly drawn you into their characters with any real sense of depth and dimension. The Sublime and Beautiful indelibly does. The dialogue rings true in scene after scene, and even in the moments where the characters say nothing, there is still an emotional engagement and deep involvement felt with them. I commend Mr. Robbins for having the courage and vision to make a film, which includes many scenes of silent moments. For me, they spoke volumes more than words could have ever expressed, instead. Most of us have suffered profound losses in our lives, and you will find yourself relating with these masterfully portrayed characters --long after the film ends. I highly recommend The Sublime and Beautiful as a "must see" film of the New Year!
