A quintessential hipster film wrapped neatly in a box and tied with a bow. The film is so packed full of clichés, it almost seems a poignant parody; however, "Stuck in Love" is generally heartwarming and possesses ample literary references that make the culmination of overused tropes somewhat redeemable.
If this is not my favourite movie, I don't know what will be. It joins the most beautiful things in life: writing and love... So good characterized, you can feel what characters are feeling and win the same desires: to be a writer and to be loved by the chosen soul, no matter how long you have to wait.
3.5. I was expecting this to be boring and pretentious but honestly everything worked really well together. I think the dialog helped balance out the plot which was essential "we write poetry and listen to the Beatles and like 1000 pg books and sex." Totally not okay with the ending, for obvious reasons.
I love this movie, is such a cliché but I love it. I was so-so on Logan Lerman before this, but his character transpassed frontiers and made him one of my to-root-for actors. Add to it that 'Between the bars' is in the soundtrack, my love for Elliott Smith would make any film that uses his music as a must-watch.
