A Good Woman Reviews
Good story line with surprise ending.
But the plot, acting and surprises, then recalling special moments of vacation days past in those settings ... ooohlala, wish we were there!
This movie seemed like it was made for TV. It's one of those period dramas, set in the 1930's, about troubled relationships and cheating husbands. I liked the twist in the movie, which kept it slightly interesting, but the core of the storyline was a bit weak. The cast wasn't that bad but there wasn't anyone to bring some wit or intense drama to the film. Don't get me wrong, I am quite a fan of Tom Wilkinson, who has seemed to matured with age, but the main characters Helen Hunt and Scarlett Johansson, didn't really make the movie enjoyable, due to the script. Personally, I was expecting better from the cast, but I think that the whole project failed because of the poor direction. Disappointing!
Everybody knows that Scarlett Johansson is blowing up at the moment in the Avengers franchise so she just can't seem to do wrong. Helen Hunt has been out of the limelight for some time now which is most probably due to her short range. She's quite good with drama concepts, but she hasn't really done anything else, except for Twister which was years ago. Tom Wilkinson has put in some great performances in movies like Michael Clayton and Batman Begins and he made me laugh as the baddie in RocknRolla. As for this movie, I enjoyed the banter between the old guys, but that was about it.Â
