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 ... read more

I love this movie, Susan Sarandon and Natalie Portman play mother and daughter really well. I love Natalie as the daughter, I think because she is a good actress anyhow this helped with her portrayal of Ann. Ann has to act as the mother because her mother Adele is stuck in wonderland, Natalie brings the maturity needed for the role which brings the realism of the emotions to screen. Susan also doe... 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.

“I love this movie, Susan Sarandon and Natalie Portman play mother and daughter really well. I love Natalie as the daughter, I think because she is a good actress anyhow this helped with her portrayal of Ann. Ann has to act as the mother because her mother Adele is stuck in wonderland, Natalie brings the maturity needed for the role which brings the realism of the emotions to screen. Susan also does a fantastic job as the mother Adele, who as I said is stuck in fantasy land where she thinks everything is fine when it is not. As Ann grows more mature and wishes to leave, Adele has to face the hard truth that she will eventual have to grow up herself. This movie is a brilliant piece of drama, with great acting that helps a good story, I really love this film it is one of my favorites.” read more

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. At the time, Portman was just starting, she wasn’t an Academy award winner, she didn’t do the prequel Star Wars trilogy yet but, pretty much like the rest of us, Susan Sarandon was able to feel the tremendous potential displayed by Portman and nobody could bla” read more

"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."
