A Film of Lost Things

3 years ago at Nov 21 1:46
Emily Watson is tremendous. At the concluding half of "Hilary and Jackie," in which she stars as the titular Jacqueline Du Pre alongside Rachel Griffiths, there's a shift between who she seems to be and who she may in fact be instead.

Intially appearing spoiled, controlling and spiteful, you begin to see her social awkwardness and vulnerability. Who is the famous cellist Jacquel... read more

A very good movie

Before watching this flick, I had never heard of it before but since it was starring Emily Watson, I thought I should check it out. After her amazing debut in 'Breaking the waves', Watson never really managed to breakthrough in my opinion but she is actually one of the most underrated actress at work nowadays. In this movie, there is also another underrated actress, Rachel Griffiths, and together ... read more

Never Coming to a Theater Near You (106 movies items)

"The touching and incredible true story of Jacqueline and Hilary du Pre, the gifted musical sisters who grew up in England in the 1950's. Written and produced as a tribute to Jackie, the story traces her rapid rise to international fame and the devastating consequences it had on her and those she loved. Jacqueline du Pre was arguably the greatest prodigy of the 20th Century. She dazzled audiences around the world with the unbridled passion and beauty of her music. While her sister Hilary married "

A very good movie

“Before watching this flick, I had never heard of it before but since it was starring Emily Watson, I thought I should check it out. After her amazing debut in 'Breaking the waves', Watson never really managed to breakthrough in my opinion but she is actually one of the most underrated actress at work nowadays. In this movie, there is also another underrated actress, Rachel Griffiths, and together they give some quite impressive performances. Eventually, Emily Watson ended up with a deserved Academy Award nomination but even though Rachel Griffiths' performance may not be as flashy, it was still really good. Anyway, I thought it was a fascinating story (which was based on a true story, if I'm not mistaken but that's never a selling point for me anyway). It is a study about musical genius, p” read more

A Film of Lost Things

“Emily Watson is tremendous. At the concluding half of "Hilary and Jackie," in which she stars as the titular Jacqueline Du Pre alongside Rachel Griffiths, there's a shift between who she seems to be and who she may in fact be instead.

Intially appearing spoiled, controlling and spiteful, you begin to see her social awkwardness and vulnerability. Who is the famous cellist Jacqueline Du Pre? Will we ever know?

The memoir on which it was based was written by her sister Hilary De Pre and her brother Piers. But can they really sum up and explain an enigmatic character like Jackie?

The film seems to be a meditation on lost things- love, talent, relationships past. Hilary and Jacqueline grow up close, their bonds seemingly irrevocable.

Hilary, the eldest, ” read more

"We see the same story viewed from two different perspectives -- and it's not really the same story at all. I haven't seen this yet, but it's highlighted in Mary Litch's chapter on relativism in Philosophy Through Film."
