Letting Go is a warm, entertaining, funny and thought provoking film
7 November 2012 | by papillon_420See all my reviews

Letting Go is a warm, entertaining, funny and thought provoking film filled with interesting characters and three scene stealing dogs. It follows Joel on his journey to understand his past so he can better navigate through his present relationships. It is about the internal struggle for work/life balance and how it alters the way one approaches life. Are you willing to sell your soul for career, money or the ones you love, regardless of perceived benefit? When does tolerance, loyalty and commitment overtake the original intention? On some level each of us struggles with these very questions. Letting Go examines the everyday mundane madness that one participates in both personal and professional relationships. In a thoughtful, comedic and occasionally quirky way, Letting Go addresses the contradictions inherent to modern life (and being human). The opposing forces of past and present desires and self-imposed limitations are meaningfully presented. While the story is about the struggle of letting go of one's personal demons, the film manages to remain light in tone, as it is peppered with comedic moments. Additionally, there is a subtext about the state of professionalism and the general tolerance of inappropriate behavior. It encourages self-reflection into one's own dysfunction and personal culpability. It is an entertaining film that leaves the audience smiling and hopeful; along with a desire to find, or simply acknowledge "the three things that make you happy."
