Have Dreams, Will Travel (Dream It Out Loud) Reviews
I was admittedly only interested in this film because I'm an AnnaSophia Robb fanboy, so I went on a hunt for it and ended up torrenting it because it was never released in north america on dvd (WHAT?!) and my GODS, it's a great movie.
This boy lives a crappy life with two parents who (as the boy says) probably shouldn't have gotten married, and certainly shouldn't have had a son - but they did, and so he goes about his life, some sort of ghost in the house. A car accident outside the diner where his mother works lands Cassie (Robb) in his life, and she's.. well, she's different. She's got an agile mind and she's not afraid to speak it as she will - though, her initial description of herself does hold true - she tells the poor lad she's 'Flawed' when he first comes to meet her, and she is.. but in only the most human of ways.
You need to see the film, you need to meet these characters. If people in real life were as moving and.. human.. as these fictional characters were, I don't think I'd need to see quite so many movies.
Now as to how the film left me feeling, I'm truly torn. Part of me wants to worship it as a masterpiece, and yet part of me wants to bury all knowledge of it. It left an impact on me that will last for a long time, and it was much more than I expected it to be, and for that I must give it the 5 stars.
It's not what you'd expect it to be. This film won't work for everybody, but for me it did, and it left a mark. If you can find it, view it, and make the judgment for yourself.
