I just wish Unlovable had developed its own unique voice and approach rather than seeming too much like dozens of other forgettable addiction-themed motion pictures.
A lack of psychological depth probably isn't fatal for a lite get-your-act-together dramedy, but it might've made this hard-to-love protagonist easier to at least care about.
"Unlovable" is the rare indie film that gets just the right level of twee.
A young woman who loves not wisely but too much gets a shot at redemption in an excellent dramedy drawn from the real-life experiences of lead player Charlene deGuzman.
It's a fluffy spin on the recovery genre, but it's a fresh one, and deGuzman's hard-won life experience adds veracity and honesty to the snappy narrative.
The sets are so limited and interaction so tight, the presentation comes across as less of a feature film and more of a stage production. That's not a problem when the words and performances are as on target as the ones presented here.
Unlovable laid everything out on the line, and bared its heart and anyone suffering from any form of addiction can find something in its words. Films like this are few and far between, but the sooner we realize it's okay not to be okay, the better.
It doesn't always make for an easy sit, but there's behavioral clarity in "Unlovable" that's uncommon.
Unlovable manages to balance the real trauma of addiction with the humor that frequently assists in coping and even healing
A slight indie film based on the experiences of a real sex-and-love addict that features some unexpectedly terrific performances.
It's from this lived experience that Charlene deGuzman draws on to bring us Joy in Unlovable and we're all the better for it.
Unlovable may be about someone who's a work-in-progress when it comes to being embraced, but the film itself is very much ready for your affection.
