In Your Eyes Reviews
Won't miss much if this ones given a miss
Still, an enjoyable exploration of an interesting concept. Well acted if a little over-played (or over scripted) for some roles.
I'd watch this movie again.
If you're looking for a catch-your-breath love story that you can really give yourself over to and lose yourself in, this is an excellent choice. I was concerned at first that the plot might be a little cheesy, based on the description, but was more than pleasantly surprised to find that it was without tropes and very well made. The actors were excellent and the chemistry between the characters was spot on. I found the writing to be extremely engaging and I was completely immersed in the story from beginning to end. I enjoyed it so much that I literally started the movie and watched it again after I'd just finished the first viewing. And for the record, I enjoyed it even more the second time. I highly recommend this movie for anyone who enjoys an intelligent, engaging, truly moving film.
"In Your Eyes" has terrific "chemistry" between Zoe Kazan and Michael Stahl-David, whom are perfectly cast in the leading roles. I place quotations around the word chemistry, because the fact that they are never face to face, you have to buy the fact that they share this incredible connection with one another, or the film will lose you. It does not bother me that the ideal is never explained, but the film could have benefited from a few hints to keep the viewer with an open mind throughout. I was genuinely enthralled from start to finish with this screenplay, as it is charmingly written by Joss Whedon, in probably the most heartfelt thing I have ever seen him pen. The cast, characters, and writing were the big selling point here, and even though there are noticeably low-budget shots, I really admired the cinematography here. The third act will have many mixed feelings from audiences, but I liked how it concluded, even though it does go a little over the top. In the end, I thoroughly enjoyed "In Your Eyes," and I would highly recommend it to anyone wishing to watch a touching story.
