I loved this film, first of all for the cinematography. It's a beautiful movie to look at and look at again. It also was very well acted, I'm glad I saw it in a theater. I know this is only one of the films I'll watch again and again, I'll probably buy it when it comes out on DVD. If you haven't seen it yet, please do! I would highly recommend seeing this film!

The story of a small town couple who discover a picture that was made by an alcoholic and ends up in a life-changing and very personal way. The movie is told through the two main characters. One of them is an alcoholic who has lost his job, and his lover is a drug addicted who loves sex. They fall in love and work together to get him his job back. The second character is a struggling woman who is trying to be an independent woman in a tough town. The movie is very authentic in its treatment of this issue. It is very touching, very funny, and very sad. It is very well acted. The two main characters are absolutely excellent. They really brought the story to life. It is not for those who only enjoy happy endings. It is for those who can relate to this story, and appreciate the spirit that it portrays. There is a character who is both deeply affected by the story and deeply moved. He learns from this story and reflects upon his life in a beautiful way. I can't recommend this movie highly enough.

I was really pleasantly surprised with this movie, I usually find myself hating movies, but this one really touched me. If you are a person who believes that animals are people, and have no moral compass, this movie will make you realize that they are not. The movies score is great, I think there are a lot of people out there who aren't aware of this. This is a great movie to show to people who don't think animals are people. I can't wait to see this movie again, it is really worth seeing.

I really liked this movie. I really enjoyed watching it and I was glad I decided to see it. A lot of people say that this movie is bad because it has no story, no beginning, no middle, no end. Well, the story is actually quite good. The beginning is one of the best parts of the movie. The movie starts out with a scene in which James Dean is giving a performance and is in the middle of this scene and then it cuts to a close up of what looks like a rat. The next scene is where James Dean is in an abandoned hotel with his daughter. This is where the movie starts to develop. It tells the story of a man who has been locked up in an old hotel and is stuck there for over 50 years. The ending of the movie is not what everyone wants to hear because it's so sad. I was hoping for a happy ending for the end because it seemed to be the only thing that I was interested in. But that's all it is. You know what I mean. This is one of those movies that will stay with you. The music in this movie is excellent. I was really impressed by how well they used that music. I think this is one of the most memorable movies ever made.

There are a few truly superb movies that all follow a similar formula. One: A survivor takes his or her life to tell the world what it has to endure. Two: A survivor does this but the film makers try to show the ramifications. Three: The survivor becomes a media sensation. Four: The survivors are celebrated. Five: The survivor's story is used to usher in a new era of guilt-free suicide. Yet, this movie is not just a melodrama. I have seen several of those in my life and I know what to expect. What makes this movie different from all of those is that it is so real. The writing is simply superb. This film is a must see. I think anyone would enjoy it and I hope that everyone will watch it. It is a MUST SEE!

Yes, the script is not the greatest, and the ending is stupid, but it's the best thing of this movie. The fact that a character's mother dies during a violent incident is just so much true. It's great that the audience does not know who will win and who will die. I recommend this movie for everyone, it's a great movie.

This is an excellent film that attempts to convey how little America believes in and feels about the rights of the enslaved in other countries. It is very interesting to see how the director went about giving the story a true sense of reality. He goes to great lengths to capture the everyday life of the workers on the plantations, particularly the workers themselves. They have no choice but to do the work, but they feel no need to be told what to do, they feel totally comfortable and safe in their jobs. The depiction of the workers' love for their land and freedom is absolutely stunning. For those that feel this is the best film of the year, I strongly recommend it.

This is one of the greatest and funniest films I have ever seen. You can see that the writer and director had great fun with this film, making it even more touching and the actors are great too. The actors and actresses are great and fit their characters perfectly. The story line is great, and it is so funny and heartwarming. All I can say is this film is my favorite film of all time. I have seen it about 10 times. I would definitely recommend this film to anyone who has ever been in a relationship, and even if you have not you will still love it. I highly recommend this film to anyone who has been in a relationship and you will love it too!

This is the best true-life story of a teenager who committed suicide after being found responsible of sexual abuse by a teacher and a school counselor. The only reason he committed suicide was because he was not believed. The main character played by Daniel Day-Lewis was a troubled young man who suffered from depression, anxiety, and PTSD. After his father died, his mother became unstable and lost touch with him. He tried to hide his depression and anxiety with alcohol and drugs. His mother was eventually arrested for having an affair with her son. When she tried to have an abortion, the police took her. This traumatized Daniel went on to attempt suicide again, when he was in high school, and had to be hospitalized. He was also unable to cope with his own sexuality and his mother's constant sex abuse. The only way he could deal with his depression was to kill himself. The story of this film is well-told. Although the film is based on a true story, it is more about the effects of traumatic stress on the body and the mind. The lead character, Daniel Day-Lewis, clearly reflects the effects of his mental and emotional trauma, depression, and PTSD on his physical condition. His physical appearance is quite disturbing, yet he carries a very strong voice, and a strong will to live. The film focuses on his relationship with his mother and sister, but also on the other relatives and friends. The movie itself has an interesting message. The film shows that parents and others in the family can be as damaging as their children, and how the abuse of their children can go undetected and unpunished. The film also shows how the abuse can go unreported and unpunished. It is important to point out that this is a true story, based on actual events. Daniel Day-Lewis, who was so good in "Edison," did a wonderful job in this film. I highly recommend it.

A gay man, David, is forced into a mental institution in the wake of his drunk driving accident. His parents, including his mother's boyfriend, are horrified at the loss of their son. They convince David to tell them how he feels, and they do so with the help of Dr. Sue, a psychologist. David is convinced that the only way he can get out of the hospital is by having sex with another man, while Dr. Sue counsels him about his inner turmoil. The movie is an interesting depiction of a man's inability to come to terms with his sexuality, and his attempts to express it through the death of his best friend. The characters are believable and engaging, the film is effective in conveying both the anguish and frustration of David's parents, and the actor portraying David gives a brilliant performance. The director is good at showing the emotional turmoil of David's parents. He uses the music, dialogue, and camera angles to depict the intensity of David's moods. This is a very good film about a very personal subject, and is definitely worth seeing.

I thought it was an excellent movie. I saw it on a plane and when I got home, I was amazed. The story was very good, it made you cry. The characters were really good. It was really touching and I was very touched. It also showed how strong a person can be with someone and not having to do everything for them. It was a great movie, a great family movie and a great movie. It was very nice.

Rhea Perlman, a young and strong woman, finds herself in prison and finds herself a bit out of sorts. She feels lost and alone in her little town. There are those who would love to liberate her but she knows she can't, and so she is confined to her home for a year. We are introduced to her father, Mr. Cosby, who is also in prison and spends most of his time with his son, Jimmy, played by Kevin Kline, a handsome young man, whose performance is excellent. Jimmy is desperate for help, and Rhea wants to help him, but when he shows up, he brings with him a reluctant Mrs. Cosby, played by Susan Sarandon. She is the kind of mother who doesn't believe in her children, but she will do anything to save Jimmy. At the end of the film, Jimmy is out of prison and is trying to be a free man, and Rhea is trying to be a mother, but she has her limits. The relationship between Jimmy and Rhea is the most moving thing in the film. They are two completely different people, but they are real people. Their chemistry is the best thing in the film, and it is very heart-wrenching. The film is a great study of a man who knows he is a free man, and is stuck in the only place he feels comfortable in, and he is trying to free himself. It is the story of a man who has had a difficult time in his life, and is fighting for his freedom. It is a good film that shows that a life is not always easy, and we are all in a part of our lives that we have to fight for.

This movie is a great representation of what "Strictly Ballroom" is all about. The type of music, dance moves and look of the dance routine. The men are all over the place, no real differentiation in class, though some of them are at the very bottom. I think this is what the entire movie is about. A class of men who are fighting for a place in the world, in order to be recognized. There are several moments of genuine emotion in the film that are genuinely moving. Not for those who do not understand what the theme of the movie is about. I was really impressed with how they put the dances into the movie and gave it an interesting and entertaining style that was not stereotyped. I highly recommend this movie, even though it is not for everyone. It is an outstanding movie and the performances of the men in this movie is what makes it a great movie.

Drama is the big name for this film, not because it's good, but because it's so much different than anything else out there. The film doesn't have any sex or violence, and it doesn't have any jokes, but I didn't even care. The film is so well made that it's like watching a play or something. It's a great story about a family who have been beaten up by a drug addict and they end up being locked in their house. They have no idea what's going on. One of the families is black, but they only say that because they don't know who the other family is. The father is in jail and they don't know why. The family are going to go through a lot of problems, but that's what this film is about. The director also put a lot of real life footage in the film to show the people what it's like to be in that situation. It's a great film, and I recommend it to anyone who likes to see a good film.

The title gives a hint to what kind of movie this is, but then you need to have a sense of humor about it to really enjoy it. The story is about two teenage girls, one a runaway, the other a prostitute. She has to run to stay alive and to avoid the police. She is a heroin addict, a liar, and also a monster. It's difficult to believe that these girls could be the same girl, and they are not. The movie is so beautifully shot and shot well. The soundtrack is so good. It's a slow movie, but the story is so well done that you don't feel that. The movie is a lot of drama, but the one that grabs you is the character of the girl, Sophie. She is so real and so convincing that you want to see her in all the way. Sophie is a very strong character, and the two leads are very good. The best part is that this is a very well made movie. It's not just about the movie, it's about the characters. The movie is well made, and the acting is also very good.

I was shocked to see the ratings of this movie. I don't know if it was the drama, the 'low budget' or the fact that it was a low budget film. But it seemed to have an audience that was all of the above. I had never heard of this film and was in the mood to see what the fuss was about. Well, I found it to be an excellent film. It kept me glued to my seat. The dialogue was good, and the actors were believable. The 'sadness' of the characters and their situations is just amazing. The music was great. The acting was good. I would recommend this film to anyone looking for a good film. I think that anyone looking for a good drama should watch this film. I give it an 8 out of 10.

I really enjoyed this movie. It was a breath of fresh air for me. It was different, a little bit more realistic and a lot more interesting than I've ever seen. It was good for me to see a movie that I really enjoyed. I thought it was good and was just in general a good movie. I am just one of those people who doesn't like sad movies but this was the best movie I've seen in a long time. I didn't like it, but I did like it. I would recommend this movie to anybody who enjoys a good story and a good movie. I think it's a good movie, a lot better than most people make it out to be. This is definitely a movie you don't want to miss.

Watch this movie and you will find out that what happens in your life, are in the life of everyone else around you. If you want to learn about how to protect your life from the bad guys, then watch this movie. I am in my 30's, and this movie gives a nice insight on how to stay young and active and not to go down the path to maturity. Life is a roller-coaster and the key to surviving it is to ride the bus. You don't want to get in the bus and ride alone, but you don't want to get on the bus alone. I love this movie and I'm going to see it again.

This is a great film and it really gives you a great insight into the human experience. I am not a huge fan of Gary Sinise but he was great in this film. It's about a guy that decides to take his family hostage in order to help them to get back his freedom. He goes in to detail what happened in the beginning of the film and how it unfolded. This is a film that will stay with you for a long time.

I have never been a big fan of horror movies, so I was not anticipating seeing this movie. I did like the idea of this movie. However, this movie is not scary or scary-ish at all. There are no jump scares, no memorable characters, no suspense, no suspense-inducing story. It is just a film that tries to make a statement, and it's not very good. The main character is very interesting, but he has little depth to him. The movie is set in a small town, and it is fairly boring. The main characters are uninteresting, and there are very few scenes where you feel anything for them. I think that the best aspect of the movie was the special effects. The actors did a good job, and the movie was very original. However, it was not worth the $5 I paid for it.

How could anyone make a film with a more depressing theme than this? "How could anyone make a film with a more depressing theme than this?" The film is so utterly pathetic and depressing that I find it hard to believe that anyone would have a problem with it. The film is about a divorced mother, she has a young son, who comes home one night and finds that the father, who was a petty thief, has killed her daughter. The father is now a convicted murderer who is committed to a mental hospital. After being released from his commitment he tries to rekindle the relationship with his daughter, but it is not enough. This film was made by the same director, the same writer, the same producer and the same cast and crew as "Home Alone 2", "Scary Movie 3", "Ghostbusters", "The Ring" and "Charlie's Angels". I will not list them here. I recommend the other two movies but I will not say they are better than this. This film is another example of how some people will stoop to the lowest common denominator in order to gain an easy buck. I recommend this movie to anyone who likes depressing films, especially if they are comedies. As I said before this film is depressing, and it is depressing to the extreme. However, it is a very good film.

I have been wanting to see this movie for a long time, and finally got a chance to see it last night. It's been on my Netflix watch list since it was announced, and I'm glad I finally got a chance to see it. A lot of the people that wrote this have compared it to The Godfather, but that's unfair. It's definitely different in some ways, but it's still the same. The movie is very simple and straight forward, but it's about family, and about doing the right thing, and it's about fighting for your family. The only thing that I would have changed would be that it would have focused more on the father's side, instead of the daughter's. The movie was great. It really touched me, and I think that I got more out of it than I did the first time I saw it. I would recommend it to anyone that is a fan of the first two movies, or the first movie of any other movie that has been made recently. I would even recommend it to people that aren't fans of the first two movies. I would also recommend it to people that have never seen the first two movies. The acting is great. Every actor/actress did a great job, and the only thing that I didn't like was the constant lip-syncing. I would have to say that it's the first time that I've ever seen the lip-sync on my Netflix. I think it's just a little annoying. The movie does not focus on violence, which is something that was missing from the first two movies. It's definitely a different movie, and it's a good one. I would recommend it to anyone. It's definitely worth the watch. 8/10
