Being in the mood for a drama and romantic type of film, this one caught my eye. And, I guess it was primarily because I had not seen Alexis Bledel on camera for awhile. As a fan of this show, I’ve found the characters she plays interesting and enjoyable to watch.
Before I go into my review, I have to admit – I went into this cold turkey (just like this film). I never saw the trailer – I just made the decision based on the cover description and the fact that Alexis Bledel was in it. To my surprise, it was definitely a worthwhile movie.
To be honest, I didn’t really have high hopes for this film. I thought maybe it would have been just “ok” at best. Though, it did surprise me. There was a bit of a twist that threw me off which I especially enjoyed.
(Note: For those who have seen the film, you’ll know what I’m talking about. I was really surprised with the outcome).
Regarding the plot, it seemed like a very basic storyline. And, to be honest – I thought I had it all figured out. But, in a way – I was wrong.
Without revealing too much (as I don’t want to spoil it for those who have not seen the movie), I will say that I really thought I knew who the “good guy” was in the film. They really did a good job in the presentation of the characters and the story.
Though as the film progressed, the movie took a turn revealing the true nature of the characters. And, to be honest – I was really thrown for a loop.
Once this turning point hit, it felt like blinders had been taken off – I was able to see the truth. And, that’s one thing this film depicts really well. It offers to beg the question, how well do we really know the people we feel closest to?
Sometimes life can take a turn. And, the life we know may not necessarily be the kind of life that is real. Sometimes knowing the truth can be painful. But, which is better – to be ignorant and live a life of what we think is happiness or live the truth and know what is real?
These are the types of choices we are faced with everyday. And, these are the choices presented in the movie which I believe we can all relate to.
Overall, I really enjoyed this film. It felt like it had a very basic storyline, though I was surprised with the twist and turn in events. And, that is what made it especially enjoyable.
If you’re in the mood for a drama and romantic kind of movie, I do recommend this one.
Happy movie watching!
