Movie Reviews

Reviewed by sbweightman 3 / 10

A messy drama that represents unconventional family life.

A mediocre coming of age drama which shows the turmoil of unconventional family life through rural Ireland. Good acting from the leads, especially the scenes with Colman struggling to bond with her baby, but the story is told rather messily and the film is uneven, rushing initially and dragging in the final act. Some of the imagery is good, others is just plain weird and it's not particularly clear what story it wants to tell.

Not The Greatest But Not The Worst Either

Saw the trailer for it & thought I'd give it a go. It was a bit slow at some points but overall, it was a good enough film. All Irish films have something about them that makes the likeable.

A Best A TV Movie For A Sunday Afternoon

Joyride

Overall this was a mixed bag of a movie. On the one hand it attempted to be profound with comments on parenting, childhood baggage, what it means to be a mother and sometimes blood is not thick than water, and then attempted humour in a farcical vane.

The script struggled and showed little emotional intelligence, connecting with another human being does not a parent make. You could see the actors struggling with the often stilted script, which fell apart in the denouement.

To believe the contrived happy ending was absurd and I certainly wasn't convinced. The acting was at best pedestrian and at it worst performative.

This is barely watchable so I'm giving it a 4 outta 10, with Olivia not all that glitters comes in the shape of an Oscar statuette.
