Critic Reviews for At Middleton
Gives a hell of a first impression, but the deeper we delve into the screenplay, the more obvious it becomes that there's not much going on under the surface.
At Middleton is a modest movie with modest aims, but at times it feels like a small miracle.
Some truths about George and Edith's underlying emotional state come out in an unconventional and interesting way, but it's not enough to make us care about the attraction that is drawing them closer.
Garcia and Farmiga, as good as they can be in the right roles, aren't doing themselves or their careers any favors with this sort of C-level effort.
Both Garcia and Farmiga dive head-on into raging rapids of doubt, pain and recrimination.
Audience Reviews for At Middleton
A film of two opposites. Garcia's character is a little too withdrawn and Farmiga's character is a little too over-the-top. Overall, it's watchable, but the extremes start to get to you by the end of the film.
Nothing could save this flick from a bad script. It's all about cleverness. The two protagonists whip out one cleverism after another till they wilt. Plus, the cleverisms are not so clever as just silly. The movie tries too hard to be clever and it gets tiring. Other elements besides the script are ok, but really it's hard to tell with such amateurish writing.
I am definitely a softie when it comes to films like this. I loved it! Vera Farmiga just radiates on screen. I loved the interplay between Edith and George and was heart broken at the ending. The cinematography was beautiful, and the plot, although formulaic and predictable, was in spite of that well thought out and entirely plausible. There was drama, most prominently when George and Edith are called on to participate in the drama class that they crashed, and plenty of care-free lighthearted moments. This is the second film that I've seen where Vera's younger sister, Taissa, plays her daughter and she is an actress to be watched. One wonders if her character will find a balance to her life or whether seeing her dreams crushed will cause her to crash and burn. I have to give it five stars!
