Beautifully Sad

The movie was perfectly pensive, introspective, and so sad. It shows different perspectives on how our choices shape us, and the next generation. The acting was incredible, especially Brady Cooper's performance. Wow. Not a need-to-see-at-the-theatre movie, but the music at that volume/proximity was moving. Overall a beautifully sad film.

Such a waste of a film in money and talent.. Did not care for the characters to show you how bad this film is. Terrible Directing, Producing and dialogue. I agree 100% with Chicago Sun TImes review. Please read before u see this. Love the actors but they could not save this film..

TPBTP is a haunting display of how the sins of a father are visited upon their sons. This movie is not paced like your typical Hollywood whiz-bang film, it is a thoughtful, sensitive portrayal of real life characters coping inside each of their lives. I highly recommend seeing this as an alternative to a barely 3D old dinosaur movie.

Worth The 2+ Hour Time!!!!

This film illustrates a story of a father and son over a span of 2 generations. Although it was a long feature, the directors/writers did really well with tying the story line together. The story is about a fathers and sons, as well as their trans-generational connection. I enjoyed this film a lot because Mendes, Gosling and Cooper (main characters) played each role so well! Just hang on until the end and you the film gives you proper closure!! A+!

Good to see once

It was quite long and although had a good story/premise, was too far fetched for me. Movie also felt like I was watching one movie the first hour and another movie the second hour. Was ok to see once but I wouldn't see it again.
