A Love Song for Bobby Long (2004)
this could have been better
I never read the book, so I saw this movie as a movie, not a book adaptation. Anyway, I loved it, the story, the slow speed of it all, the careful unfolding of all the lives and secrets, the atmosphere in the whole movie...
Except for one thing: the main role. And that's a really big thing, because this movie so leans on the characters. The others were great, I can't say anything else, down to the smallest role, but alas for John Travolta. He starts out alright, but soon it's all about his mannerisms instead of Bobby Long. Maybe because this is a relatively new director he lets Travolta get away with it? It's a shame, because the rest of the movie is really, really great. And because Travolta CAN act... so what went wrong here???? Still a high mark for all the rest!
