Movie Info

In this slyly humorous family drama about what we inherit (and don't inherit) from our parents, Grace (Lauren Lee Smith) has not spoken to her recently deceased father, a fabled filmmaker, in years. She surprises her confidant (Jennifer Beals) and herself when, on a trip to pick up some of his belongings, she offers to help put together a retrospective of his work and finds herself influenced in strange and significant ways. 9In this slyly humorous family drama about what we inherit (and don't inherit) from our parents, Grace (Lauren Lee Smith) has not spoken to her recently deceased father, a fabled filmmaker, in years.

  • A thoughtful thesis on the melodrama but a letdown in its attempt to serve as an affecting example of that genre.

  • The actors make up for the relative thinness of the material. Smith navigates the emotional terrain with great skill.

  • For a film about parental loss and cinema itself, Cinemanovels is too dull to leave any lasting impression.

  • Smith gives a stellar performance in the role, building a character whose motivation is a mystery but whose emotions are deeply felt. Too bad the film doesn't really have anywhere to go with such talent.
