An inspiring movie

Posted : 7 years, 7 months ago on 13 September 2010 10:53

Since it is a rather obscure feature, I wasn’ t really sure what to expect from the damned thing but since I have weak spot for James McAvoy and Romola Garai,  I thought I might as well check it out. Eventually, I thought the whole thing was actually very good as it was just very well acted and well written. Finally, there was a realistic movie about people with a handicap ... Indeed, for example, I always had a hard time with 'Rain man'. I mean sure, this classic might be mostly entertaining, I’ll give you that, but, in my opinion, it gives also a rather unrealistic view on someone who has to live with a handicap. Here, they didn’t sugarcoat the whole thing so it became pretty bleak but since the characters were quite charismatic, it was still really entertaining to watch. The weird thing about this flick  is that it was the 3rd movie directed by Damien O'Donnell (after ‘East Is East’ and ‘Heartlands’) and even though he delivered by far his best movie so far, he never actually directed another movie again which is too bad. Anyway, to conclude, it is sometimes funny and sometimes heartbreaking, I really liked the damned thing and it is definitely worth a look, especially if you like the genre.
