Audience Reviews for Heights

  • Oct 02, 2015
    Heights is an urban drama with intersecting lives and stories. It is a relatively light film where one observes the interactions between the characters, has insights, and is not so much engaged with them; it is more pensive than emotional. The acting and filmmaking are good and I recommend it for those who are in the mood for this kind of film.

    Yet another pastiche of mostly unhappy and boring New Yorkers and how their lives change over the course of a day. Amy Fox could use a spark of creativity in her screenplay to distinguish hers from the glut of similar films. (I knew an Amy Fox in college, could she be the same? I hope not ) Some good performances from Glenn Close and something of a revelation from Elizabeth Banks, but for what?

    James Marsden is exceptionally good and Glenn Close is better than I've ever seen her. This film is beautifully written and shot.

    As a sharp dissection of contemporary relationships and sexual mores, Heights is a beautifully subtle film, one marbled with both wit and heartache.
