Charming and fun, with beautiful shades of poignancy
What a charming, inviting movie! Even though this is an independent film, the movie looks and plays like a movie straight out of the Hollywood studios. The story was sweet and engaging, but the real story seems to lie in the journey each character takes. After watching the trailer, I expected a really silly movie, and this movie certainly has lots of silly moments, but it's actually incredibly touching and thought-provoking. The performances of the whole cast are facile and sincere, especially those of Marshall Bell and the protagonist Jack Roberts. The tone of the movie reminded me a lot of recent movies I've seen like "Garden State", "Away We Go", and "500 Days of Summer." Subtle, but colorful and creative. Oh, and I must mention how beautiful the movie was! The light, the angles, the locations...it makes me want to visit Tulsa to experience that beautiful river. Highly recommended movie!
