A beautiful painting
30 April 2008 | by kerrigand-1See all my reviews

I saw this flick at its premiere and liken it to a piece of art. The more I watched, the more I saw--gorgeous cinematography, soulful writing, and wonderful performances by actors all around. I think that it speaks to a more sophisticated audience with its depth of focus on relationships, particularly between the two brothers. If you see the movie only for Mariah, you'll be pleased with her performance--low-key and genuine; still, you'll be impressed with the work of the other actors, each one unique and well-cast. The movie is more lyrical than loud, and I mean that in the best possible sense. I dare you to watch it without being moved. What a sweet debut for the screenwriter Russell Schaumburg. Congratulations from a fan.
