The characters in the film are for the most part eccentric and distinct, all of them 'good' people, even the irascible newcomer, although unaware of their own talents. The comedy is gentle and I started to identify with many of the characters. The voiceover at the start grated a little, giving the backstory which for me gave away too much of the plot to come, but that aside I was so glad I stumbled on this little gem
The synopsis reads - 'Apartment building superintendent Cleveland Heep rescues a young woman from the pool he maintains. When he discovers that she is actually a character from a bedtime story trying to make her way back home, he works with his tenants to protect his new friend from the creatures that are determined to keep her in our world.'
Bryce Dallas Howard is brilliant, as always. Paul Giamatti is magnificient, he just gets the character so well and they gel together well. I love that M Night Shymalan's film are very random and the stories are all so different, this isn't really scary or anything but its a fun tale to watch.
But what I like the most about this unperfect and unresolved film is that it is a maverick film, that does not fear to be misunderstood and even labelled as sentimental and naif. But it is fascinating in a way. And Paul Giamatti give his best performance along with that in Sideways: moving, true, intense and sweet
