Despite the emotional terra firma Nivola and other cast members try to provide, this drama about a taciturn loner forced into single-parenthood drifts into the ozone.
There's a sense of beauty and contemplation in Albertin's work, and though it seems like danger hangs in the air, there's an odd lack of tension or suspense, and the film's pace requires incredible patience.
Though hardly a failure, the serious-minded film is less affecting than it might've been, relying sometimes on hints that are needlessly ambiguous and on symbols that don't quite click.
Here, deeply damaged people are prone to exasperating decisions. Yet these characters are so strikingly realized that you can't help but care for them.
The nicest thing that can be said about this demure little Canadian trifle is that it's a film that finally gives the gifted, self-assured and sadly underrated Alessandro Nivola a leading role.
Still, while his first feature may be gorgeous, the characters in this rural family drama prove so amorphous that their struggles engender detachment instead of empathy.
I found the entire emotional journey on which Weightless takes viewers to be rewarding as well as heartbreaking.
Despite some strong performances and some haunting imagery, it's difficult to establish a sufficient emotional connection with characters who are this internalized and withdrawn.
Weightless marks an impressive debut feature defying convention to recount a pessimistic story about two misfits coming together too little, too late.
A downbeat troubled-son/incompetent new father drama that dabbles in off-his-meds magical realism
A stylistically assured piece of work.
