That’s the title of a movie which won an Academy Award – I think.
Well, I had resisted watching this even though I was on a look-out for good movies. Having read the synopsis (a love story between 2 mentally-ill people) and watched the less than impressive trailer (I thought it was one of the run-in-the-mill inspirational type of life-triumph-over-adversities story), I had decided to give this a miss until my sister’s strong recommendation.
My sister has good taste so on the strength of her recommendation, I decided to give it a shot.
It was surprisingly quirky and yes, feel-good. Jennifer Lawrence (she of the Hunger Games) was beautiful and talented, and so so young when paired against the delicious Bradley Cooper.
I don’t think it was as much about the acting talents then the solidly written script. It was neat and meaningful and just wonderfully original. Although I tend to steer away from movies about everyday life, I didn’t find a dull minute in this 2-hour treat.
So yes, my sister was right again.
Now, if only I can get around to watching Mr Holmes in Star Trek.
