Goofs

When Sidney is laying in his front yard, he has his hands behind his head. But when Brett walks up he removes his right and lays it on his chest. But in the next camera shot, both hands are behind his head again. See more »

Quotes

Sidney Hall: Gloria... she had a virginal quality that contrasted with her ice cool outer shell... yeah, she was a bitch, for sure... Her breasts, her cheekbones, her legs; she saw that in the mirror every morning and was well aware of the power they held over men. No one could touch her or intimidate her. I once saw Brad Dorsey, the captain of the soccer team, crying by his locker. She had dumped him after one date and took his balls with her. From that day forward he never played sports again.

A beautiful Narrative
17 February 2017 | by abisignaSee all my reviews

With an excellent cast and compelling storytelling, Sidney Hall takes us through three different time periods of the main character's life and does a great job interweaving the different periods and gives us a deeper look into the character as the story progresses.

The film has an epic yet grounded feel to it, and one can't help but root for and feel for the characters. I was emotionally affected by the film, but also had moments of laughter peppered in too. The cinematography was beautiful and there are lots of surprises along the way, and they all pay off.

The entirety of the cast give great performances. Nathan Lane is in his element and the moments between Michelle Monaghan and Logan Lerman cut deep. Elle Fanning and Blake Jenner hit heavy with their characters, showing all is not as it always seems on the surface.

Kyle Chandler and Logan Lerman really go for it and dig deep, and their scenes together really shine.

I found myself laughing and crying throughout the film and am really happy to see that these types of films are being made. If you like stories that make you think and really dig deep, go watch this film.
