Kristen Stewart delivers a excellent performance in this conventional film whith clichés. But a good surprise especially the ending. Jake, son of Ridley & nephew of the late Tony Scott has a way of his own. == Kristen STEWART est parfaite. Si le film est convenu et n'évite pas les clichés, il reste quand même une très bonne surprise. Jake, fils de Ridley Scott et neveu du défunt Tony Scott a trouvé son propre chemin.
Strong indie character drama works in large part due to the cast, with James Gandolfini and Melissa Leo excellent as always, and a surprising turn from Kristen Stewart, who has wrongly developed something of a bad wrap. It may not completely achieve its dark potential, but a well-crafted and compelling film.
Comme beaucoup de films primés à Sundance, celui-ci est tout à fait sympathique sans être aucunement novateur. Sur des sujets assez délicats (perte d'un enfant, prostitution d'une mineure), le réalisateur reste finalement très classique et pudique. Tout en s'écartant des conventions hollywoodiennes, il n'évite pas certaines facilités et invraisemblances. Heureusement, Kristen Stewart livre une performance émouvante.
It's probably Kristen Stewart's best movie since she starred in "Speak". It's even more special because James Gandolfini (RIP) was apparently also in it. Although Kristen was pretty much acting with her real self yet again, but her character works! She was great to watch with James, as their characters built a love that is awkward, painful, and compelling. It's beautiful.
So critics didn't like this movie a lot but what do they expect? This is an unpretentious, very humane little film about three troubled people who have to manage loss and disorientation. It doesn't offer a solution, it only shows rounded characters coping with life. That's what film is there for if you ask me. So if you wanna watch an honest film which three exquisite leads and no Hollywood ending, this is for you.
The plot was intriguing at first but quite underwhelming later. Acting was terrible with the only exception of James Gandolfini. I really dont understand why so many people here write that Kristen Stewart did a great job, she was clearly overburdoned by the role.
Kristen Stewart's character was a little too together to make the role believable for me - it never really was clear why she had to strip/prostitute herself - but the fault is in the script, not her acting.
