When Harold and Lillian first came out, I was completely uninterested in the film and couldn't believe it had been made. I just didn't think that the couple would get away with it. But after watching it, I was hooked. I've watched it several times since then and have read the book. I've been reading the book several times, and still feel the need to watch the movie every time I read the book. It's really a beautiful story about two people who, after losing their husbands, had to deal with the grief and confusion of what happened. Their actions were very selfless, and very real. They are very different people, but it's a story that anyone can relate to. The movie is very well made, with beautiful photography, and good editing. I was surprised by how well the film showed the relationship between Harold and Lillian. In the book, they were very close, but there was a lot of anger and bitterness. Here, they are almost always in one another's arms. In the movie, it's not as clearly shown, but I think it works. If you don't like this film, you probably won't like the book. This is a very romantic film, with a lot of passion. Harold and Lillian are two very different people. They are very caring, and loving, but very destructive. They need each other, but they are not perfect. They are flawed. They are not perfect, and sometimes you can see how flawed they can be. The book is very intense, and I thought that the movie was very intense, too. But the movie is a lot more emotional. I really feel that the film is more moving than the book. I'm not sure that the movie would have been as good if it was just a book, but I think that the movie is much more moving than the book. I love the book, but I think that it is hard to watch the film, because you just can't keep up with the emotions in the book. It's very intense, and sometimes I think that the film is too long, but I don't think that it was too long. The film is very slow, but the book is so much more interesting. The book is really about relationships, and the film is more about two people trying to deal with grief and anger. The film is not a typical Hollywood film, and I think that it works very well. It's a very powerful film. I think that it's worth watching. I highly recommend it.

When the Academy awarded Harold and Lillian with an Oscar for best picture, I was extremely excited. I had never seen a documentary on the movie before, and had no idea who they were. I was also extremely excited to hear that they were actually married. They had been married since 1974 and the whole story about how they met, fell in love, and then divorced. What I didn't expect was the emotional depth that they had given to the story. It is absolutely heartbreaking to hear the story of how they fell in love and how that passion was ruined when they were married. The filmmakers gave us the real story and the documentary didn't distort the facts, but rather presented them in a way that shows what the reality of the marriage was. I felt that this was the most honest and accurate documentary that I have ever seen about the life of Harold and Lillian. The documentary shows the pain and the agony that they went through. It is so raw, but I think that it is an important part of the story. I think that the film makers were able to show us what the real story is and the pain and agony that they went through. There is a wonderful documentary called "Mad Love" that was done about a year after Harold and Lillian's divorce, and it was very similar to the documentary that this one was based on. I think that the only thing that this film did was to add to the story. The story of Harold and Lillian was also very good, but I think that it was an important part of the story. This is an important documentary about the Hollywood marriage.

This is a story that people can relate to. People will talk about how the guy works in a food processing plant in New Jersey, but there's also the guy in the office in Hollywood. The movie is also a really great piece of filmmaking. The acting, especially in the case of Harold, is incredible. There's a lot of true emotion that you can feel from these characters. You want to give them all some hugs. The directing is fantastic. The story is fascinating. There's a lot of humour that is found in this movie. The camera work is fantastic. The music is excellent. The story is exciting and heartwarming. The characters are great. The dialog is great. The editing is fantastic. The score is really, really good. I can't wait for this movie to be released on DVD. It's a movie that should be seen by all people who want to see a great story told in a great way.

This documentary is by far the best documentary I've ever seen. It captures the true essence of the Hollywood industry and its relationship with the American public. This is a documentary that really makes you think and make you think about the nature of films, Hollywood, and American society. I highly recommend it. It's one of the best documentaries I've ever seen and I highly recommend it. You will not be disappointed.

Harold and Lillian: A Hollywood Love Story is an honest and comprehensive look at the lives of the many people who created the "American Dream" in the 50's and 60's. But it also includes an excellent overview of the society we live in today, and the people who have shaped that society. It's fascinating to see how their lives were shaped by the American Dream, and the harsh realities of what it meant to them. It is a wonderful film, but one that is also very sobering. There is not one moment in this film where the viewer feels anything other than love and sympathy for the people who lived in this time and had to live it on their own terms. The film's focus is on the characters who created the American Dream, and the consequences that they had to endure. And the film does a wonderful job of illustrating the fact that the American Dream was a fragile dream that was completely at the mercy of the marketplace, and by extension, the people who were actually responsible for it. The film is a very important one to see, but not for those who have never lived through these times. It is a documentary that anyone can watch, but one that is very effective for anyone who has. And it is an important film for anyone who has been a part of the American Dream, or even a parent. It is the kind of film that will give you insight into the people who were there at the time, and who shaped this world that we live in today.

Lainie Kazan is an actress who has done her share of drama films, with a good performance in "The Bell Witch" being her best. This documentary on her film "Inland Empire" was just as good, but at least "Inland Empire" was considered a comedy, whereas this documentary is considered a drama. But that is okay. "Inland Empire" was a huge commercial success, and for good reason, because it had the right blend of comedy and drama. The story of Lainie and Harold was the real deal, but the issue of gay rights is a bit of a weak point. "Lainie's" father was a prominent character in the movie, but I didn't think he played any important role in the story. However, it is still an important point that she did not have to suffer the cruel fate of "A Streetcar Named Desire" with the relationship of her father and his lover being broken up. That was a very painful situation for Lainie, and I'm sure she felt it, as she has a very difficult time relating to her father and her mother. This documentary really shines on her acting, and even though I have not seen her in a big film since "Up In The Air", she has really grown and matured into an actress. As a woman, Lainie has done great work in her life, and I have to applaud her. She has done some good things in her life, and I'm sure this documentary will make her a much better person, as she has the power to do that. If you're interested in seeing this documentary, I highly recommend it.

I love this movie. It's a combination of different subjects. It has been my dream to go to Hollywood and do a movie like this, but I was very shy. Now I'm here. I met the wonderful people, the fabulous crew and a wonderful director. I saw some pictures from the movie. It's a beautiful story, and the story of two people who love each other and their life. And how it came to be. There are a lot of beautiful pictures. And I think it's very important to know how it happened. The story of Harold and Lillian is very touching, very funny, very interesting, very beautiful. I recommend it to everybody. I think that people should watch it and know about it. I really enjoyed this movie.

We love this film so much, it has made us realize what we are missing out on in our everyday lives. This is one of the best films that we have ever seen! I recommend it to everyone.

This documentary takes a look at a couple of the most romantic films in Hollywood history. Each film is followed by a great conversation between the director, producer, and the star. Each discussion brings about questions and thoughts on the film itself. The conversations are so authentic that it is easy to become involved in the film itself. The questions and answers are so honest and sincere, that you will have to go back and see the movie again to fully understand what they mean.

I was quite surprised to see that there are not many reviews here for this documentary. I found it to be a very well made film, with many clips from a few classic Hollywood films. I think that they did a great job with this. This is really one of the most important documentaries ever made about Hollywood. The fact that it is made by people who have been in Hollywood and know the industry makes it even more important. It's interesting to see how things were back in the 70's. The fact that they are making a movie about a decade later, and the subject matter, is a little off putting. But it's still very interesting. I would definitely recommend it to anyone who is interested in the subject.

Having recently re-watched this movie, I am absolutely astounded by the power of the relationship between the two men. There is no doubt in my mind that they made an amazing marriage. The movie also really captures the mood of the times, and makes you feel like you're right there with them. This is one of those movies that is sure to be enjoyed by many, if not most, of the viewing public. I would recommend this movie to anyone, and especially women.

If you love a good and interesting film about the Hollywood legend Harold and Lillian, you will love this documentary. This is a fascinating and interesting look into the life of these two wonderful actresses, who brought the two words "Hollywood and love" to life. This film is a great addition to the collections of documentaries available on DVD. It's full of incredible behind the scenes footage, like the premiere of "The Producers" and the final screening of "The Last Picture Show", which had a massive reaction in the theater. The amazing behind the scenes footage also shows that they loved making movies, and that they were really "proud" of what they did. The documentary includes interviews with film critics, and even a film critic who played a pivotal role in the success of "The Producers". It's a great look into what it was like to be in the world of "Hollywood" in the 70s, and how they had a great influence on millions of viewers. It's also interesting to see how they developed their relationship with the American public and the press. All in all, this is an interesting documentary that I would recommend to anyone. It's a great look at the life of the two talented actresses, and their influence on millions of people, including myself. "Harold and Lillian: A Hollywood Love Story" is a must-see documentary.

I was so moved by this film, that I cried more than once. I didn't understand the film at first. I read the book and it was good, but it didn't feel like a film. When I saw the film, I realized that this film is much more than just a story about the true love story between Harold and Lillian. This film really touched my heart and made me want to know more about the characters in the film. I was impressed with all of the performances and especially with Morgan Freeman. He is such a great actor and his voice is so fitting for this film. I am also a huge fan of Anthony Hopkins and I must say that he was perfect for this role. I also think that Tilda Swinton was great in her role. This film is about real love and I feel that this film is the best film about real love I have ever seen. I cannot wait to see this film again. It is such a beautiful film and it really touched my heart. I recommend this film to everyone who is a fan of any type of film. I am going to see this film again and I am going to see it again and again and again and again. I am so happy that I saw this film. It is a wonderful film.

Hollywood has a really cool movie style. This movie really is a passion project. Harold and Lillian is a love story and it really shows you what happens behind the scenes. The movie takes you to the set and gives you a feel of what it is like to be on the set. The director, Adam Greene, did an amazing job showing you the real thing. If you are a fan of the movies then you will definitely enjoy this movie. I hope that Hollywood doesn't ever stop making movies because it really is amazing.

It is sad to see a film with a subject like this get a bad rap. It is not as bad as I expected, and it does an excellent job of giving a strong background to the subject of Hollywood glamorizing pedophilia. The directors of this film, Walter Sallinger and Laura Goodwin, have great insight into the Hollywood industry, and they have some great anecdotes about the many ways in which they have seen their careers fall apart. One thing that I enjoyed most about this film is the conversation that was done with the subjects of the film. I have a lot of respect for Laura Goodwin and Walter Sallinger, and I think they were very candid with their stories. This is not a film that I would recommend to most, but it is a very important film for those who have any interest in Hollywood, and it is a must see for anyone who has an interest in politics, or people in general.

I was surprised at how good this documentary is. I was unaware that Harold and Lillian was made. I was more shocked that it was so well made. I never saw a film that has been made about an actress with such passion and dedication to her craft. It is hard to watch this film without feeling like you are watching a work of art. It is touching to see Harold and Lillian and feel like you know them. The actors have given their best, and the director, Mark Stedman, has been amazing. I feel like it is almost as if he has brought the characters to life. I feel like he has captured the essence of the characters and captured the feelings of their lives. I think that this documentary is one of the best documentaries ever made. I think that it is well worth watching.

In a career that has spanned nearly 40 years, Stanley Kubrick has never made a bad movie. Indeed, he is a master of his craft and has proved himself capable of putting together a film with such an extensive amount of special effects and powerful performances. Indeed, it was probably his second greatest achievement that he directed THE SHINING and THE FOO FIGHTERS. However, there is one film that he is still perhaps not the best at. And that is THE KUBRICK FILMS. Many critics are divided on whether this film is an impressive documentary or a documentary masquerading as a film. This film provides a fascinating look at a man that, for better or worse, has been in and out of the public eye for so many decades. The acting is generally top-notch, but Kubrick is the driving force of the film. The film is so well-made that it is difficult to even know what is going on at times. However, I would say that the best thing about this film is that it is fascinating, very well-written, well-made, and a fantastic look at a man who has been behind the camera for so many years and a man who has had a life-long fascination with the supernatural. For that reason alone, this film is highly recommended. However, for all of these reasons, I can see why some viewers will feel that the film is, at times, overly repetitive and repetitious. While I can't say that I completely disagree with this sentiment, I also have to say that there are some sections of the film that do remind me of other films that I have seen and this film definitely reminded me of The Shining. The two films that came to mind are HALLOWEEN and THE FOO FIGHTERS. In my opinion, this film is highly recommended.

From an entertainment standpoint, "Troy" is not a good movie, and it has to be said, I am usually very accepting of movies that are bad. If you like movies, and you like movies, you should probably see this movie. But for those who don't like movies, don't watch this movie. It is bad. Period.

I am always a fan of this film and watched it for the first time last night. I thought it was excellent. It is based on the true story of Harold and Lillian Williams and is about the friendship between the two. I found it to be quite interesting, although it is a little difficult to follow. I thought it was well shot and the acting was excellent. I was a little disappointed to find that the documentary was not longer than the documentary itself. I would have liked to have seen more of the things that the two did together. The two were very close, in a way that most people would have wanted to be, but I think they are the epitome of true friendship and I think it was well done. They were such a pleasure to watch, especially the daughter. The story itself is not a great film and the fact that it is based on a true story makes it even more interesting. I highly recommend it to anyone who enjoys a good love story.

This documentary was done on a low budget, and that's what makes it so powerful. They're willing to go to any lengths to get a message across, but their message is what they get. They took all the pains to get it right. The production quality is a testament to that. The story of how these two beautiful people met and fell in love is so fascinating and it gives hope to the millions of people who are struggling to find love. They don't shy away from the tragic circumstances they were put through, and they never deny the truth. It's the most honest and revealing documentary I've ever seen. I recommend it highly.

A movie like this, can only be so great. The production is fabulous, the acting is absolutely brilliant, the story is very interesting and the film is very well done. I recommend it to anyone who loves the movie industry, or wants to understand the life of a Hollywood star. I would also recommend it to those who don't have a good knowledge about the movie business, but who like to know the history of the movie business, and appreciate a film that presents it to the world in a very interesting way. I rate it 10 out of 10.

These two friends, who had been separated since high school for years, finally get back together and get together for good. As they were on the subject of books, which Harold wanted to be a teacher, Lillian, who wanted to be a reporter, had to turn down her dream. Instead, she opted for writing a book about the society in which they grew up and became a star. I loved the book Harold and Lillian wrote in their youth. Harold was someone who was one of the most popular girls in school. Lillian was someone who always appeared to be around her age, with a few years on. Their story was the perfect blend of high school-life and being on the stage. As we watched the process of their book, I was totally engrossed in the way the two friends progressed. I was so looking forward to seeing them enjoy their life. The music was a perfect choice for this film. I just loved the soundtrack. One song that I had really missed during the course of the film was "Wouldn't It Be Nice". As they grew older and later in their marriage, Lillian wanted to begin to write for school and found it very difficult. She fell in love with The Rock and their characters on stage were especially fun. I hope that all of you, as I did, will see this movie, especially those who grow up in the same society in which the characters were growing up. Just be sure to get a copy of the DVD. I'm glad I got it, and I can't wait for it to be released on Blu-ray. I can't wait for them to watch this film again. We must do everything we can to help the story be heard.

My main objection to Harold and Lillian is that it pretends to be an original story when in fact, it is a variant on Hollywood legend. Is Hollywood royalty prepared to go against what is and feel they have to? Were they so afraid to be seen as the individualists that they did not want to buck the system that created them? In a sense, this movie is a depiction of an individual who will not have to deal with the establishment and do what is right. It would be a sad day in Hollywood if the establishment was to find out who they were and "deal" with them in a different way. That is why Hollywood was so concerned about "going against the system". The film does give us an inside look at the creative process of the Motion Picture "company", but for me, the movie is just too rich in emotion. I would be surprised if so many people have not gone to see this movie. But if you have not seen it, do not think twice about seeing it. Just be prepared to be disappointed.

Harold and Lillian was an interesting case of a good script & great performances. With the exception of one scene, Harold & Lillian was a very good movie. I would say that it is a classic. If you are a fan of the old silent era then you will enjoy this film as well. If you are not a fan of the silent era you should go see it. Its one of those rare movies that every time you go see it, its good to see again. I have seen it 5 times and I still can't get over it. Harold & Lillian is one of the best movies I have seen in a very long time. The acting was excellent from the main characters. Robert Redford was a legend back in his silent days and he was a great actor. Harold was a great character and so was his relationship with Lillian. This was a great movie and I highly recommend it to anyone who enjoys classic movies.

The documentary "The Great American Dream" is a gripping, brilliantly photographed and even more haunting film. You could not ask for a better portrait of the inchoate mixture of love, hatred, bigotry, joy, and sadness that made the West A Fair Country. The opening credits, featuring the 1964 "Miracle on 34th Street," only make the movie more unforgettable. The story of two men, John Travolta and Harold Ramis, is worth a watch for anyone of any age.

Anyone who watches this film for anything other than emotional catharsis will not understand what is happening. This movie is riveting because of the artistry and the work of all of the actors and their roles in this incredible and inspirational story. Everyone should see this film.

This is a must see documentary on how Woody Allen transformed his film career. The film gives us a great look into the actors and the working of their movies. The filmmakers went through dozens of interviews with the actors. They were able to get people that have worked with Woody and to understand what he was really like and how he does not agree with what they are doing. The documentary also shows us how different people can get along with each other and what situations can cause anger. Finally, it is a must see for Woody Allen fans and everyone who wants to know more about Woody Allen.

This was an incredibly moving film. It showed, with the ease of a film noir, the relationship between two men that has lasted almost three decades and possibly the greatest marriage in human history. Tom Hanks is an inspiration, not only to me as a film fan but to the entire human race. His performance is magnificent, and it is amazing that he didn't get more than an Oscar nomination. His "guilt" upon leaving his wife for 50 years was extremely moving. And although there are issues of fidelity between Tom and Lillian, it is never about the age difference, or even the actual age difference, as that was very irrelevant to the story. I was with the Hanks family when he visited their home in Utah. My parents had made a deal with Tom when he was younger to tell him that they were going to do whatever he wanted, and that he had to marry a beautiful woman if he wanted to be married to someone younger, and he was never to date again. I was thrilled when he went off to college, and I think that was why he got married to her, and maybe his parents didn't want to destroy their marriage. They felt that they had to take care of their oldest son, and they could not give that up. Tom, with his incredible look, extraordinary talent, and is one of the greatest actors of our time, had every right to be with his wife. I would recommend this film to anyone who is looking to see a true story of true love. It is a story that is not easily told, and this film shows that it can be told, and a great example of this. My only question is about the ending. I feel that I know what happened to Tom, but I really don't. I'll get back to you. I am leaving a comment here that is more about my experience than the ending, but I will be honest. I think Tom's real and greatest wife may be someone else. I hope you enjoy the film, and I thank you for making it, Tom.

This is an outstanding film that makes me feel like a second-class citizen because of the abuse of power that the rich received and used in the film. So many of the guys that we see in the film have unbelievable, questionable stories about how they got their wealth, and how the rich feel the poor and have done to them. There are actually quite a few of these guys in the film. The film is important because it is a powerful story and it provides a good example of the way that the rich feel. I hope this is an example of how things can go wrong with someone and lead to the death of the poor. The stories told by the filmmakers are not only of this film, but are of a story that the rich have told themselves for the last few years. This is a film that can have a great effect on the people and show them what kind of a world they live in. These stories should be watched by the public and they should be allowed to see that there are people who get rich simply because they are given an unbelievable amount of money. It is not a film that they should be watching, but a film that the poor should see that there is a problem, even if it is just a problem that has a small effect on them. I also believe that the film can be of help to those who are afraid of the problem of wealth inequality. These are the people who are struggling in a world that is beyond their reach, and should know that the rich do not care about them and have no regard for their life. I would recommend this film to any person who is interested in the problem of wealth inequality, the American dream, or an injustice that is growing in the world.

I'm not sure what the focus of the documentary was, but the interviewees were incredibly insightful about life after The Fresh Prince of Bel Air, and their own inner turmoil. They discuss the struggles of pre-TFA fame, the challenges of getting cast as a young actress, the struggles of playing a young child actor, the pressures of fame and their own true families, and their own troubles with drug addiction. Their reflections about how fame is the biggest curse of all, and that "The Fresh Prince" lived his life by his faith, broke many societal norms, and was considered a great and great actor. One thing that really struck me, I thought it was interesting how they presented everything in a way where no one was necessarily the voice of a character. They chose characters to present their stories from many different perspectives, which was refreshing and good for the younger generation. One thing that really bothered me, was the way the mother and father's relationships with the other characters were portrayed, especially with the mother. When you hear someone say "I love you" or "I love you" to the character she's talking to, there's a feeling of guilt or something that's off, or she's failing to show her love. In this film they did a great job showing the child actors at a young age, when they were still acting. But there's a huge disconnect from that when the mother is talking to the two actors she's with. As for the relationship between the two actors, they seemed like they had a real relationship, but I'm not sure if she really meant it when she said that she loved him. This shows that the director should have made some more subtlety. Overall, this film is great. It is very intelligent and realistic, as well as thoughtful. I was really surprised that the directors were so interested in the social aspects of this documentary, as they talk about how drugs and alcohol can really destroy a person's life. It's kind of strange when you think about how it might be an ordinary person's drug addiction, but the way they handled it was very interesting. I would say this is a film I would recommend to anyone who's interested in the roles of actors or the social aspects of the film, but at the same time I think they did a great job explaining how people in the film were truly acting, which was something I didn't really understand before I watched it. In this film the social issues are interesting, but I think they could have included some more subtlety. However, I think that's why this film is so great. It's not a film that you can watch just for entertainment, but it's a very thought-provoking film that I think anyone should watch. I'm glad it was released on Netflix, as this is the first film to be released on Netflix that I've seen.

It's wonderful to see this movie get such strong word of mouth. It's a very sad story, and it's hard to watch this woman go through the pain of Alzheimer's, and suffer in silence, alone, with no one helping her. This is a story about the courage of a woman, and her determination to keep fighting for what she loves. What a wonderful movie!

This was the best documentary I have ever seen about one of my favorite actors: Harold & Lillian, and also about the Hollywood trade and production. I loved the way in which director and actor watched and relived the memories of the film. There is no cliched way in which this film is made. The story itself is told in a way that is captivating, but there is also a mix of humor and sadness in it, so that the viewer is at the same time a part of the film and watching it unfold. I would recommend this film to any fan of film, or anyone who loves a good story told through film. My favorite parts were the way in which Harold and Lillian remembered and relived the experience of making the film, and the way in which they had a memory of the story that was being told to them. I have seen the movie about three times, and I have been the director of the original show. So I have seen the film that I have always wanted to see and with a new appreciation of how beautiful and wonderful film can be.

This film captures the artistic image of the golden era of Hollywood glamour and art. These are the golden days of Hollywood, and even though many of us know little about this period, we still know enough to appreciate and connect with what was going on in those dark days. The show is so interesting in that you never know what you are going to see, and even when you do, you will be amazed at what is going on. The shows also allow you to follow the characters, who were often just over the age of 16. The characters often gave to you an insight into how they really felt. I highly recommend this show to anyone who is interested in the golden era of Hollywood.

I highly recommend seeing this movie. This is a very realistic look at Hollywood. It looks at the relationships between executives, film executives, writers, etc. Very well done and riveting. You get to see how they manipulate you and what they do to get what they want. While you are watching this you will be affected by it and even think about what you want. This movie was very honest and very honest about what goes on in Hollywood. It's very powerful and a very personal look at Hollywood. It was incredibly well done and highly recommended. It's definitely worth your time and I have very little complaints about it. It's hard to believe that this was actually possible. This movie is worth seeing.

This documentary is very informative and fascinating. This movie is all about how professional film makers ruin the credibility of the independent filmmaker. Harold and Lillian, is a documentary about a woman who was nearly killed in a tragic car accident by an angry drunk driver. Many years later she tries to get her story told on screen. One of the biggest problem for independent filmmakers is that they don't know how to get noticed by a studio. Harold and Lillian is a film that tells her story in a way that it doesn't have to have a small budget. Harold and Lillian is great film that gives us a look at what the independent film maker goes through. It also gives us a glimpse into a woman who was very dedicated to telling her story. I was extremely impressed by this film and I encourage others to see it.

The movie was very well done, I was laughing through it, not only because of Harold's humor but the way they actually pulled this film together. It was very interesting to hear how it went in the production and how everything went together. The actors were great and the set was very very beautiful. They should have used a big screen so it would have been better. The stories were well told and they had it all. It was very funny. I will be keeping this in my home and show it to my friends when they come. A great story that you will laugh throughout the entire thing. I recommend this movie and would recommend it to anyone.

Perhaps it's an over-the-top and saccharine romanticism that is kindled by the presence of the two leading actors, but I found the movie and the movie itself to be better than most romantic comedies and what I found out in the end. For the first time, I got to see a movie about the very life of Harold and Lillian Bickers, the conservative movie star, and how that life affected them. I did not find this movie very charming and I really do not understand why they are called "cult" or "haunted" movies. I do not mean that it is shown as a ghost or a fairy tale or anything like that. It is purely a film about the evolution of a couple's, because they were a couple, but I can't say that it is very faithful to their life. But that's OK because this movie does have a very nice soundtrack, particularly for its genre. And the soundtrack is worth the price of admission.

I'm not sure what is more shocking - the show stealing or the show stealing itself. I am surprised that the following conversation never took place. Let's not forget how many times the fake Harold and Lillian have already been on screen in previous films. Is this all a part of the joke? If so, why do the audience continually ask the film-makers how to complete their moment. If I had known this then the film would not have been complete. The viewing public are aware that this is an enjoyable film and there is certainly a love for it, but should never question the ethics of it's portrayal.

Saw this film yesterday in a packed house at a film festival and wanted to tell you all about it. The way in which each individual related to the story was incredible and refreshing. It was fascinating to hear about the small-town people who were so authentic and wonderful and the epic story behind it all. You could feel their emotions and see their lives and how the world changed around them in a way that was not easily acceptable to them, which was an important part of this film. We were also shown how the film changed their lives and the people who were involved with the making of it and we can only hope that this documentary continues for many years to come. If you haven't seen it yet, get your tickets, get a ticket to the screening or the movie, rent or buy it! See it for yourself and you will thank me. And, to make a truly profound comment about this movie, you will need to see it again!

The best documentary I've ever seen. In the old days I was in love with Marilyn Monroe.I saw many of her movies but never saw any of her nude pictures. As I got older I realized that it was no use being so obsessed with Marilyn. She was a good actress and could have been great in any type of role she chose to play. I was so disgusted to see that she had committed suicide in 1940. I went to see a movie with my daughter and she was so upset that she kept telling me that she felt sick after seeing this documentary. I had no idea she had done that. I hope you will find this movie as good as I did.

Harold and Lillian has everything a film buff would want in a film. Beautiful locations, costumes, action sequences, and some of the most amazing (some may even call it unbelievable) sets I have ever seen. All the characters are real, and what is more, they are relatable and believable. Many people have said that these actors and actresses did a better job than anyone in their careers (I have to disagree). Harold (Philip Seymour Hoffman), Lillian (Reese Witherspoon), and Arthur (Matt Damon) all have a story of their own. Not only do these actors and actresses capture the essence of the lives these characters lived, but they are also so real and relatable that you can be yourself and feel their emotions. And finally, the film's director and producer is Phil Rosenthal, who was in the movie and has been around since I was in college. You can tell that he's had an influence on everything that follows him. This film is a must see and if you aren't already a fan, you should be.

This film is a life changing experience. It is a documentary that takes a really hard look at the complicated relationship between a couple, a reporter and a celebrity, both of whom have issues that will probably end in divorce. And these issues get so personal and personal in the film, it's almost as if the film were from the couple's point of view. A real eye opener, no one should miss this one.
