I LOVED this feel-good film which was loosely based on a true story. I wish we could have a little less violence & hate and a little more kindness in filmmaking today. This is a family-friendly movie. There may be some language but most kids have heard it all anyway. I hope you see it. It will lift your spirits!
I don't know what others thought about this film but for me, it brought back the nostalgia of when we were kind of hippies and there was so much love amongst friends. You'd do anything for a friend. I know I have and friends have done beautiful, thoughtful things for me as well.
It was a different time when society has less structured rules about women's body autonomy and sexuality. Freethinkers, movers & shakers came from that generation.
The movie brings me back to the days I had packs of friends and we would be there for each other no matter what. It is a loving, gentle, and kind film, but still not for the weak of heart,
I was much younger when I watched The Deerhunter for the first time. But I knew it would be one of the most impactful films of my life. American people send our soldiers off to war and count the days until they return so life can be the same again. But it never will. And nowhere else have I seen this so poignantly portrayed than in this film. If you really want to know the cost...the true cost of war please watch this movie. Make sure you bring the tissues. The cast was incredible, every single one.
I saw it in Boston in 1973 before it was banned. I had seen quite a few thrillers in my time but at that time nothing at all compared to the Exorcist or to the performance of Linda Blair and Ellen Burstyn. It was quite creepy!
This was a very heart-warming, amusing and entertaining film based on a true story (which only made me love it more). It has a little bit of everything. There are a few love stories in the film, some tragedy, loss, sorrow, joy, exuberance, hilarity, disappointment...a little like life. I think there's something for everyone.
Outstanding documentary about the connections between slavery, Jim Crowe, the current Prison Industrial Complex and everything in between. Having done over 2 decades of prison volunteer work I knew much of this. Still there were several surprises along the way. Well thought through, brilliant interviews. I will watch it again.
Had a bit of a rough start, with predicable one dimensional characters. But as it progressed the characters developed and the plot became more intimate and progressive. It turned out to be a wonderfully inspiring movie. For animal lovers it will be much beloved.
