Movie was just okay. I was not thrilled but not disappointed either. If you don't like drama movies with no action, then you may want to skip this one.

I don't usually write about movies I see but I was certainly moved by this movie to do so.
My goodness, the writing was ok and even clever at times, but overall it was cliche, predictable and amateurish. The whole movie reminded me of a low-budget, poor-quality Christian movie that comes out every now and again.
It was preachy. I'm a forward thinking, left-leaning liberal, but got so tired of its message.
The characters lacked consistency. They were haphazard, depending on the need of the moment.

We couldn't get a seat in Life of Pi, so sat for this one. Let's see: Mr Cool drops in Podunck City to rip everyone off, goes for a drink, and the coolest girl in town flirts him, lets this total stranger sleep it off in her house; bad guy turns good guy, lives happily ever-after. What a bunch of BULL.

Beautiful story by Dave Eggers of a very real issue many Americans are facing right now.
Gus Van Sant again directs a wonderful cast and the cinematography is gorgeous. Matt Damon, Frances McDormand and John Krasinski provide honest, moving performances as well as Hal Holbrook and Rosemarie DeWitt in supporting roles.
