Critic Reviews for The Whole Wide World
Invest some patience and you'll be richly rewarded with rolling frontier vistas, butterscotch sunsets and a sweet, melancholy romance that will sneak up on you and grab your heart.
It adroitly conveys author Robert E. Howard's slow disconnect from the world, and the effect that had on those around him.
"well-acted and moving"
Audience Reviews for The Whole Wide World
Nicely done bio-drama based on the book written by Novalyn Price Ellis. It's about time we witnessed a woman making a decision about a man via her head, not her heart. She loved him, but he was just too damaged. From what I have read about this writer, he was quite a talented, yet strange man. This is an enjoyable glimpse into the life of an amazing and complex man and the woman who, aside from his own mother, probably knew him best.
Not a bad picture. This is back in the days when Renee Zellweger was tolerable. Period pictures don't stay with me for the most part however and that is my sentiment about this one. I stopped thinking about it once it was done.
This movie is based on the book One Who Walked Alone by Novalyne Price Ellis. The story recounts her friendship and romance with Robert E. Howard, creator of Conan the Barbarian and Red Sonya. The film, directed by Dan Ireland, stars Renee Zellweger and Vincent D'Onofrio with incredible cinematography by Claudio Rocha. Both Zellweger and D'Onofrio turn in amazing performances. I personally think this is one of the most romantic and heartbreaking stories I've ever seen. This movie can always make me cry buckets. Best quote: To make life worth living a man or woman has to have a great love or a great cause... I have neither.
