5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant little indie film for fans of something different, 16 April 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Rocket Science [DVD] (DVD)
This is a great little indie film and is perhaps the very best example of everything you come to expect from the word 'indie'
The film is quirky and interesting but it's greatest asset is that it doesn't conform to Hollywood movies.
Though funny the film is very realistic, perhaps from a pessimistic perspective, but realistic none the less.
The characters are all very believeable and the plot isn't the traditional hollywood one where things always magically go right for the main character just in the nick of time. The film has been reviewed as a bit depressing but I would say its realistic.
A great example of a bitter-sweet film, fans of Wes Anderson will love it.
The film feels like it was written and directed by someone who had total control and was not forced to make changes in order to please the average audience and give them what they expect. It's rare ability to not conform to the standards of hollywood is what makes it so emotionally engaging as it never once feels false.
I know I am repeating myself but it makes films like Juno and Little Miss Sunshine (both amazing indie films) feel mainstream.
The actors are all great and Anna Kendrick who went on to be great in Up In The Air shows that she had the gift from a young age.
Different, real and heart warming. Although perhaps depressing in places it makes all the little happy moments pull at your heart strings even more.
