A Map of the World Reviews
Directed by Scott Elliott.
Written by Peter Hedges and Polly Platt.
Rated [b]R[/b] (for some sexuality and language).
Running time approximately 2 hours 8 minutes.
Scott Elliott's [i]A Map of the World[/i] is a wholly convincing drama about love, loss and redemption. I know that probably sounds completely lame and contrived, but the film proves such thoughts to be incorrectly applied. I really enjoyed this film. That's the wrong word. The film really affected me, and in all the right ways. It does run a bit too long, and there are some unnecessary elements, but all in all, this is a good one. Weaver and Moore are wonderful, as usual. [b]***1/2 (out of ****) B+[/b]
Segourney Weaver's acting is front and center in this film. She does a good job with the character but it pains you to see her do some things that you know will conspire against her.
It's a painful movie to see, and done with not quite as much drama as the material might allow for.
just through really bad times and huge problems in life you can see who are your real friends and who will stand by you no matter what
hope it's a good movie
