The story of Richard and Mildred Loving, an interracial couple, whose challenge of their anti-miscegenation arrest for their marriage in Virginia led to a legal battle that would end at the US Supreme Court.
While both participating in a production of "Death of a Salesman," a teacher's wife is assaulted in her new home, which leaves him determined to find the perpetrator over his wife's traumatized objections.
Ove, an ill-tempered, isolated retiree who spends his days enforcing block association rules and visiting his wife's grave, has finally given up on life just as an unlikely friendship develops with his boisterous new neighbors.
A teenage girl with nothing to lose joins a traveling magazine sales crew, and gets caught up in a whirlwind of hard partying, law bending and young love as she criss-crosses the Midwest with a band of misfits.
I watched "Divines" carefully. When you follow the story of the movie, a few questions are coming up and the most important one is What the movie was trying to say to audiences? Well, the movie is trying to point out that achieving money in any dirty deal cannot buy a good true friendship. That is what I speculated. Family and society have very important roles in educating children and forming their characters. We see Dounia who has different troubles in her life including her family. She dreams for having money to change her life and her mother's too. But the way she went through it was not right. By making wrong decisions, she lost her best friend. However, she did regular crime acts to favor herself. The movie has a few extra plots and scenes. Moreover, it doesn't show what happens after murdering the boss guy (I forgot his name) for stealing his money from his home.If the story could be going on, then Dounia had to be arrested by police. However, this could be shown in the movie instead of extra dancing scenes!
In addition to the explanations stated above, the action of players was OK, specially Oulaya Amamra as Dounia. Sound, make up and music were fine. All in all, I was expecting a better movie. My big problem about this movie is its story. I know people who read my review may not be find it useful because I criticized it from the point of my view in a way they disagree. My rate is 5/10.
