And we just stay there like this. With it all draining away. The hideous breakfast, the fight with the boyfriend, the perverted uncle, the broken expectations, the sadness which is everywhere... sometimes. And, we stand there and let go. And I swear to god, it all goes away.

-Match (2015) movie review: -Match is a limited release film that focuses entirely on an older dance instructor, played by Sir Patrick Stewart, who agrees to be interview by a younger couple, only to abruptly discover that they may have a very different agenda. (Nothing sinister, it's a drama, not a thriller) -Match is an example of an alright film that would be better, but really can't be because of its limitations.
-The story I thought was pretty good and deviant of cliché.
-The pace was probably too quick. With the story, it felt like a longer TV episode.
-The acting was good. Patrick Stewart did a good job, but other than learning how to dance, nothing outside of his skill set. Carla Gugino did well, but nothing beyond her usual roles. I was most impressed by Matthew Lillard, (live action Shaggy) who was really compelling and impressive.
-The characters were deep and there was a lot to either like or dislike. However there is no character that you really feel good liking.
-The music is forgettable. However playing one song twice worked in this.
-The thing I either really liked or really did not like was that the entire film takes place in like a day, and it is right to the point. It is 90 minutes of the main story.
-Match is rated-R for some language, although not heavy, and an R amount of sexual dialogue. By R standards it is not that bad though.
-Match is well acted, compelling, and has a well written story, but lacks in being anything more because of its runtime and lack of anything but the story. I will say I enjoyed it, but it is only worth watching on Netflix/Redbox. 7/10.
-Did you see Match? What did you think? Leave a comment or a like if this review helped and make sure to stay tuned for my review of The Wedding Ringer soon!
