What will I do without my Italian tutor!
The kind of interesting film that won't allow you to root for any of the character, so that's that. Everyone is good, but the script is merely ok and not very engaging.
I think we live in a period that justifies me not caring about the "drama" of rich people with a pool. How many variations can we get on Teorema ?
Even though co-writers Ry Russo-Young and Lena Dunham took their screenplay through the Sundance School, "Nobody Walks" feels like the first draft of what could have been a great film. There's a compelling enough story buried in here but I think what hurts the movie is how poorly written John Krasinski's character is - a problem since he is the crux of "Nobody Walks." Here's a guy who has a lovely wife, sweet kids, a fabulous house, and a high paying job in the film industry - and he throws it all away just because Olivia Thirlby rests her head on his neck. I suppose the justification is 'well, she's Olivia Thirlby.' But this film sorely needed a dose of realism to keep it from being just another indie movie about vapid artistic types living in L.A.
A dash of Sofia.Heavy doses of Noah. Silverlake galore, once again. Petty dramas in an uber-white microcosm. The real title is "First World Problems, The Movie".
