Beyond the Lights (2014)
brief review from world premiere at TIFF
I was at the world premiere today at the Toronto International Film Festival and just wanted to say that I thought the movie was really excellent. Definitely on par with the director's other works. It very easily could have fallen into being a schmaltzy typical chick flick love story type of movie but it doesn't do that. It is a fairly predictable love story but the relationship between the 2 main characters is great and feels authentic and emotionally truthful. They had a pretty strong, palpable chemistry together. You could see a real attraction between the two on screen and only adds to the intensity. Minnie Driver was great as well as Noni's driving, determined mother and manager doing everything she could to make her daughter a star. Not really an Oscar movie but good solid directing and screenplay and really great acting performances particularly from Driver, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, and (the extremely handsome and delicious) Nate Parker.
White Oleander (2002)
I saw this movie, Michelle Pfeiffer is brilliant
I went to the World Premiere of White Oleander at the Toronto International Film Festival, I have to say it was a very good movie. It was very well done and the performances were amazing. I enjoyed it a lot! Go see it when it is released in theatres in October!
