A good movie

1 year, 10 months ago at Apr 2 10:19
Ever since I saw ‘Smoke’, I have been closely following Wayne Wang’s career. Unfortunately, none of his other movies reached this level of awesomeness (‘The Joy Luck Club’ was still very damned good though) but some of his other features were certainly decent and this movie was certainly one of those. The major point of interest was to have Susan Sarandon and Natalie Portman together in ... read more

Description: Anywhere But Here is a heartfelt drama about the stormy but loving relationship between mother and daughter. Adele August is a free-spirit who becomes fed up with her boring life in Bay City, Wisconsin, and dreams of a better life in Beverly Hills.

A good movie

“Ever since I saw ‘Smoke’, I have been closely following Wayne Wang’s career. Unfortunately, none of his other movies reached this level of awesomeness (‘The Joy Luck Club’ was still very damned good though) but some of his other features were certainly decent and this movie was certainly one of those. The major point of interest was to have Susan Sarandon and Natalie Portman together in one movie and, apparently, Susan Sarandon made clear that she wouldn’t do this movie if Natalie Portman was not cast as her daughter.

"The angst file: Ann: My mother made an amazing amount of noise when she ate her food it was as if she was trying to taste the entire world. sometimes i hated her, sometimes I couldn't stand her, sometimes I thought she was ruining my life, what kept me going was knowing that one day I'd leave her."
