Excellent the filming of the movie, with the (legitimate) insistence on close-up and a great soundtrack from Broken Social Scene, who left the band to emerge and breathe. The leading pair are flawless and Ryan Gosling proves sufficiently charming. The Academy was a pleasant surprise, including the young actor nominations for the Oscar for Best Actor. The only objection the final sequence, which is... read more

2011 was definitely Ryan Gosling's year but this guy has actually been around for a decade and it was about time he got the recognition he deserved. Way before that, in 2006, he made this forgotten and underrated gem and I was really eager to check it out. The interesting thing with this flick is that, on a paper, it sounds rather shabby but the execution is just nothing short of brilliant. During... read more

"11.08.2013 "Second chances are rare, man. You ought to take better advantage of them." This was a very good movie. Ryan Gosling really deserved his Oscar nomination here. He was great. Definitely one of his best performances. The rest of the cast was also to notch. Especially Shareeka Epps who i also thought should have gotten a nomination. "

"A sweet film, that made me sad but also made me laugh. Sweet friendship too. Movie pushed it close to the edge where I almost hated Ryan Goslings character but pulled it back just in time for me not too."
