Audience Reviews for The Journey of Jared Price
Very low budget, and the acting is a bit on the amateur side, but it?s a really good story and well written. It?s simple, very touching and heartfelt. It?s very sincere and Dustin Lance Black?s direction is excellent, especially considering the restraints he had to deal with. It?s always interesting.
I rented this because of Dustin Lance Black, the Oscar-winning screenwriter of MILK and writer on BIG LOVE. I figured his early effort at writing/directing a gay coming of age movie were worth viewing. They are, barely. You're not going to find anything startlingly original here. You're going to have to ignore the very low budget shot-on-video quality. You're going to have to accept the acting as a lesson on what not to do in film. You're going to have to squelch your prurient interest about how Black cast the lead to look so much like himself (I did). But you do get a very sweet and romantic sentiment, a believable construct for the characters, a story arc that almost certainly has happened often in real life (predatory older guy, confused closety young guy, best-friend buddy, old-lady mentor, the evils of the big city. I kept thinking I'd sampled it, I should turn it off. Only I didn't. So there.
