The Most Powerful Character Drama I can Remember
13 November 2014 | by johnptomaiSee all my reviews

"Third Person" is the most powerful character drama I can remember seeing in many years. The characters are well developed -and slowly developed in detail. Each of them are uniquely human, with deeply rooted emotional motives. As the yarn unwinds we learn more about each character and begin to wonder about how their stories will ultimately collide. The success of this story lies in a cast of well developed character studies, portrayed by actors performing at the top of their game, scripted by a writer -who's style reels us in scene by scene, compelling the viewer to relate to, and ultimately 'care' about where the story is going. Ultimately, we are awarded with a conclusion delivered in a climactic "bang". The conclusion of this movie is notable, including some of the most raw human emotion and absolutely raw fertile ground for provoking emotion in the viewer as I have ever seen recently on screen.

If you like character dramas that unwind like a slow yarn and delivers the goods in the end, you wont be disappointed.

Two Big Thumbs up for this excellent Character Drama.
