Subtle, engaging, under-rated
10 June 2015 | by tgmarsdenSee all my reviews

I wanted to review this movie because it was such a nice surprise to enjoy it after I had avoided seeing it due to the low rating here.

This is a really original movie, with solid performances by the lead actors. From the IMDb summary you know the basis of the film, whats original about it is it does not focus overly on the negative - depressing themes etc. Due to the characters being in a low income, 'poor' demographic of society, so many movies are made with a view of looking down, pity, there is something wrong and these people need to change.

This film is very real but not negative or depressing. It shows that just because a couple is not living the American dream, it does not mean their lives don't include fun, love, laughter etc regularly. There was no bullshit in this movie, no 'Hollywoodness'. And I liked it. Its so good Matt Damon and Naomi Watts take on films like this.

I'd rate it a 7, but give it an 8 here to boost the rating!
