News & Interviews for James White
Critic Reviews for James White
Whether you want to spend time with "James White" depends on your tolerance for yet another film about how hard it is for guys who just feel too much.
The experience of watching "James White" is like being shut up in a small, dark, airless room ... a sickroom.
It's Abbott who's the revelation, showing off all sorts of previously unseen leading-man potential.
An accomplished and compelling film by writer/director Josh Mond, James White is also pretty much a bummer.
Abbott contributes a smart, soulful performance, but Nixon keeps threatening to walk away with the movie as the mother, who can't get enough of life and whose physical decay is colored by rage, defiance, and terror.
Audience Reviews for James White
Totally amazing portrait of youth struggling for manhood within the psychological grip of an ill parent with real world expectations.
James White may not be the most original movie of the year but surely it is lead by stunning performances from Christopher Abbott and Cynthia Nixon that successfully manage to make the audience feel all the pain and suffering that this movie can give.
That ending.......wtf!? That's it? Either rise or plummet but don't just leave it at a plateau! Would've given it a much better rating if the ending wasn't so lame. :(
