When her husband is sentenced to eight years in prison, Ruby drops out of medical school in order to focus on her husband's well-being while he's incarcerated - leading her on a journey of self-discovery in the process.
a beautiful, thorough, complicated portrait of grief
Ava Duvernay's I Will Follow is a beautiful, touching film about a character grappling with the recent death of someone very close to her. The details of the relationship and the situation are given to the audience in bits and pieces, until we eventually complete the puzzle. But by then, we'll also have watched this tension-filled relationship with another relative, a moving conversation with a neighbor and a beautiful encounter with someone, ending on the rooftop (my personal favorite). Complicated relationships between mother and daughter and cousins and nephews were painted very well. For me the film drags a little by the time we get to a certain love interest, though it is my personal preference to stay with the focus of the first half rather than what the film is leading me to.
