Torn: Not Accurate but Delightfully Beautiful
20 February 2017 | by Kate HigginsSee all my reviews

As being a Maine native, it seemed like all of the costumes, scenery, and accents were FAR off. Like Joe Manganiello can honestly pass as the worst fake Mainer. This might not have anything to go with the movie, but it just bugged me on how stereotyped this movie made Maine. Now, concerning the actual story... although predictable, one of the most beautiful films I've seen in awhile (#1 being Before We Go). I also just want to bring attention to the AMAZING soundtrack as well. It can only be explained as pure art; the movie in general is just art. This review makes no sense, but I encourage you to watch it if you enjoy an emotional story line with romantic undertones and a touch of viewer interpretation. Also, if you love Jason Sudeikis, this will NOT disappoint. It's an honest, and although not necessarily an original screenplay, still raw and hopeful. So, definitely watch for the story and not the Maine aspect because it's sh*t which is really too bad.
