Everyone gets old. Not everyone grows up
Soon after her divorce, a fiction writer returns to her home in small-town Minnesota, looking to rekindle a romance with her ex-boyfriend, who is now married with kids.
Review: Growing old can be tough for a lot of people. This film gives an intriguing examination of this fact and incorporates it into a fine story. In one of the best films of 2011, Charlize Theron generates well-deserved Oscar Buzz for her believable performance as Mavis Gary, a tween-novel writer who comes to terms with her adulthood. I also must compliment the performance of Patton Oswalt, an underrated actor who succeeds as a disabled man who befriends Mavis. This film’s story could have turned out to be another dreadful romantic comedy, but its execution makes it truly special. Every scene is shot with subtlety and finesse to show off the well-blended comedic and dramatic aspects. As you look at the style of directing, you will notice the true talent of Jason Reitman (along with the script-writing genius of Diablo Cody). After seeing this, I am quite interested in checking out Juno. Hopefully, it will be as good as this selection of cinematic gold.
