It would be a lot easier to dismiss The Hanging Garden if its fetishized details weren't so naked and boldly autobiographical.
The ensemble acting is quite good
The director touches your heart without ever letting the story dissolve into anything approaching a tearjerker.
What makes The Hanging Garden so unusual is Fitzgerald's classic approach to a portrayal of family life.
If you can clue into Fitzgerald's blend of surreality and reality in not just the same film, but the same frame, then you'll be just fine.
This one is from the 1997 Toronto International Film Festival list I have. Not a bad film just a little hard to understand, maybe someone who smoke's a bag of refer might understand it better. This movie was from the Perspective Canada portion of the film festival which I take to mean was filmed in Canada. A young man returns home to his sisters wedding after being gone for 10 years, and talk about a dysfunctional family, no matter how f up your family may be these guys will beat them hands down. The wedding seemed like something out of Alabama and not Nova Scotia, didn't know they had rednecks up there. Anyway no one warned me in any review but I will warn you, Gay Theme throughout. Overall hard for me to understand. 2 stars.
A good film, if you can get past the "made for tv" feel.
A very interesting concept that just doesnt feel like it was fully developed / executed.
It was alright.
Dreary homecoming movie with a gay man revisiting his childhood pain at "The Hanging Garden". It's somewhat interesting.
