I had no expectations, only some interest, before watching this movie. The acting was absolutely superb! Not surprising, seeing as the likes of Christopher Plummer, Helen Mirren and James McAvoy starr in it. It is also a brutally real movie about life and love: it's not always a walk in the park, not is it always easy. And the bigger your temperament, the less well you cope with things not going your way. I knew very little about Tolstoi and now I feel very educated. I deducted half a star because I am not convinced that the romance between James McAvoy's and Kerry Condon's characters was absolutely necessary, but it isn't awful. The soundtrack is also to be noted as one of the best I've ever heard! So all in all - a wonderful experience.
I loved this movie! The way it deals with conservative religion without really judging it, it was brilliant! And
I don't know why, but I expected more from this movie. It wasn't bad, by no means! Stories about true events - if done well - are a joy! But something was missing from it and that is a continuous tension. There were elements in it that weren't at all exciting, even if you are a hardcore Tennis fan like me. Also the story of the woman Billie Jean King (Emma Stone) falls for was changed from real life and this time, I really didn't understand why. The real story would have been totally ok. Of course this is another story about being yourself. That's what I love about it.
One of my favourite movies of all time! It's got everything: fabulous acting, a great soundtrack, a wonderful heart-breaking/heart-warming story, inclusiveness and just so much love! I would recommend this movie to anyone who wants to laugh-cry and laugh and cry.
Wonderful movie about love, music, following your dreams and being yourself. Jeff Bridges didn't win an Oscar for nothing! If you don't like Country Western music at all, it might not be for you. I do, though, so I also love the Soundtrack. Jeff plays the guitar and sings himself. Colin Farrell does some singing and playing and he does it very well. Who knew! Maggie Gyllenhaal is a delight in this. So natural and honest is her performance, she moved me to tears.
