Lovely & Amazing (2001)
This movie is good,not great,not fantastic just good. It's quite pointless but the the fact that there is humorous bits and good acting makes up for that. The films about 3 sisters and there Mother and about there life.There all different and all have there own problems. The main sister Michelle played by Catherine Keener is trying to sell her art, but has no luck and takes a job in a photography, where she ends up having a fling with her young boss, Jorden played by Jake Gyllenhaal. The other sister Elizabeth, played by Emily Mortimer is making it into the movie business, already appearing in a film,but has her confidence set back when she doesn't feel as if she's sexy. The youngest sister Annie(Raven Goodwin)was adopted and is dark skinned, so she finds it hard sometimes being bought up in a family with a different race. The mother Jane(Brenda Blethyn)is quite lonely despite having 3 daughters and tries to flirt with her doctor while having surgery that has some bad Side effects. To be honest I only saw this film because of Jake Gyllenhaal and I wasn't disappointed, he wasn't in it for long though,which I wasn't to pleased about, but when he was he looked very good looking and acted really well, along with all the other actors and I think thats what also saves the film. I thought at the end it left too many Untied knots and there were a few things that I didn't really like about it, but aside from that it was an OK film, but like I said before a bit unnecessary, but I quite enjoyed it and if your a fan of any of the actors in this, then I would recommend this chick flick!
Moonlight Mile (2002)
Fantastic film with even more fantastic acting!!!
This film is perfect if your looking for a good cry but with some humorous bits too, in fact this films got everything you want in a drama, joy, sadness, hope, fear the lot. OK this movie is not for everyone some people are bound to find it really boring and a bit of a drag so if you into all action and full of energy kind of films then I would advise you not to even consider this but to all the people who are into dramas or Jake Gyllenhaal then I would recommend this movie 100%. The acting is truly amazing, they are all really believable as the roles they are playing. Dustin Hoffman and Susan Sarandon as the parents of their murdered daughter, Ben and Jo Jo, clinging on to her fiancée as they feel he is a big part of her and don't want to see him leave them too, while Jake Gyllenhaal as the part of Joe the nearly son-and -law to Ben and Jo,Jo, who tries to be perfect for them and be everything he wants them to be despite what he wants..which he really doesn't even know..he's confused..doesn't know what he wants to do in life. As he said, "I want to figure out what I want to do".
This film is truly beautiful and shows deep emotion that isn't in any way corny.A film that I think is very underrated.To be honest I saw it for Jake Gyllenhaal but after seeing it it is now one of my favourite Jake films.
I loved it!
