As road trips go, this one travels far and travels well.
Rather familiar and predictable, though not dislikable.
The characters aren't particularly likable or clever, but their chemistry is convincing and it's well performed.
The script is too full of events and outbursts for it truly to convince, but the actors bring charm to the film and director Hattie Dalton has a pleasingly light touch.
Third Star is a brilliant, heart-warming film. It is written, directed and filmed beautifully.
Underneath Third Star's classy cladding, which camouflages its maudlin streak and conventional melodramatic underpinnings, there lies a TV movie first and last.
Dalton, a Bafta-winning short filmmaker, ensures everything looks pleasant and polished enough, but there's very little here that stands out.
All of this feels a little too pat and obvious until we edge towards a lump-in-the-throat finale with an emotional wallop absent from the predictability of the previous scenes.
This beautifully shot and finely acted drama will struggle to find an audience simply because its subject matter is ultimately so dark
It's an hour-and a-half of nothing.
Dalton's first feature doesn't quite reach the philosophical depths she appears to be aiming for, but Cumberbatch keeps sentimentality at bay, and the ending is almost unbearably poignant.
A film that many will find more morbid than melancholy.
A beautifully shot film starring a beautiful quartet of friends, one of whom has terminal cancer, making the journey to said dying friend's most favourite place on Earth to spend one last get-together. Sounds horrible perhaps, but this is truly a stunning, moving, hilarious, wonderful film that has been imbedded in my brain since I saw it on a tiny screen in a near-empty theatre. It's a small film with modest aims that absolutely succeeds on numerous levels and is one of the few films I've watched that had me uncontrollably *sobbing*. You can perhaps tell where it is going but every now and then I found myself wrong-footed in surprising ways. The concluding 15 minutes are a genuine tour-de-force in acting, writing and direction as every possible thought that anyone in such a situation would have is verbalised. To elaborate more would be unfair. This little seen and critically ignored/maligned film is worthy of your time and I implore you to seek it out as this talented director and exceptionally talented cast deserve to go on to do more widely recognised work.
