Critic Reviews for Then She Found Me
Unexpectedly sharp, light and appealing; a testament to Hunt's skills behind the camera.
Hunt's film does soften the heart, not least because of its honesty and its sensitivity to some unfashionable dilemmas.
From the looks of things, the actors were simply let loose as themselves.
Trying to establish a serio-comic tone is a task best suited for seasoned directors. Given that a boom microphone drops into the film frame at least twice, Hunt has more basic production elements to master.
Everyone acts decently and you have to praise Hunt for her tenacity. But this suffers from some fairly dire cinematography and a manufactured air that prevents the watcher connecting to the whole thing.
Audience Reviews for Then She Found Me
If you are a romantic, you will like this movie. The main characters are all going through major changes in their lives - April's marriage is falling apart and the is 39 with no kids; Bernice is feeling left out of the daughter she gave up as an infant; Frank is having difficulty raising his kids. The movie takes all these issues and more and ties them up in a neat bow.
The movie has a good cast, a ton of perspectives about love, life, relationships and the seeds parents sow. If your looking for a film with acoustic guitars, family matters, and good tempo without being unrealistic then watch "Then She Found Me".
Interesting movie. I didn't know if I was liking it much until I got towards the end. The film grows slowly on you. By the end credits I was totally digging the film and was elated with the ending...
