This was not a movie that ever jumped out at me in the shelf, but heard such good things I decided to check it out.
Glad I did. I really enjoyed this. Convincing characters and interesting little story about a reluctant beauty queen and a small town embalmers son.
An interesting film that centralizes on a lonely young man and his father in rural Texas. Due to his father's accident, young Elvis takes on the tasks of being a mortician in the family business. One day, a young woman's body is brought in for funeral preparations. Her unexpected return-to-life inflicts a national discovery and alters her pursuits of beauty pageants that she leaves home in favor of staying with Elvis and his father. Their short-lived moments of peace is interrupted when Anabelle's mother initiates a search for her.
Great cast- awesome performances by Max Minghella, Blake Lively, and Joe Mantegna.
Quirky, and enjoyable independent film. It had a nice romance, and a heartfelt father and son relationship. How can someone not like that?...:)
A moving, somewhat uneven, meeting-of-lost-souls movie. Elvis is an emo mortician, and Anabelle is the breath-of-life who turns his world upside-down! His stubborn...emo-ness and her bossy optimism kinda wore on me a bit, but Minghella and Lively are both invested in their roles.
But of course, there's the obligatory "let me explain" scene in the pouring rain, in which Elvis doesn't really explain, and Anabelle is forced to think the worst of him and the *spoiler alert* seemingly necrophiliac pictures.
Overall, a nice little story about miracles and redemption.
