Beautiful
16 December 2017 | by echapman7See all my reviews

Heartfelt film pulls the viewer in immediately with alluring visuals, likable leads with good on screen chemistry, a strong soundtrack and a feel for how relationships begin, develop and evolve over time. It shows how addiction issues can creep up on a couple and are often not quickly or easily resolved. It somehow pulls off the neat trick of being tightly constructed despite unfolding over several years. The middle section showing the husband's frequent drunken episodes is a bit repetitive, but this is an issue that dogs most movies about addiction. Overall it is a moving story of a loving couple grapping with a serious problem. The two leads are quite good. You will find yourself rooting for them.
