Product Description

Product Description

An unwitting murderer and a woman whose family he murdered struggle to come to terms with where fate has taken their lives in this independent drama. Ana (Minnie Driver) was a wife and mother caring for an educationally challenged son and a moody-but-loving husband when fate led her to cross paths with Saul (Jeremy Renner). Saul was a gambling addict deep in debt to loan sharks and desperately in need of enough money to keep collectors from killing or injuring him; a foolish decision on his part led to the death of Ana's husband and son. Years later, Saul is on death row, awaiting execution for his crimes, and Ana is unable to find closure, still grieving bitterly for the loss of her family. When Ana and Saul finally meet face to face not long before he's to be put to death, they both find it difficult to express their thoughts about loss, forgiveness, and redemption. The first feature film from writer and director Charles Oliver, Take was screened as part of the 2007 Tribeca Film Festival.

Set across two separate days, one past and the other present, 'Take' tells the story of two characters, Ana and Saul whose paths cross with dire consequences.
Ana is a hardworking mother of a seven year old boy with learning difficulties and wife to a low paid junior high school teacher. To make ends meet Ana works part time as a maid for the 'Maid Brigade' cleaning service and when her son is abandoned by his local school due to his difficulties, Ana is forced into looking for a second job to pay for private schooling.
Saul is petty thief with a gambling addiction. After being fired from his job at a self-storage facility for stealing customers possessions, he needs to obtain $2000 stake money to get him into a card game which he hopes will pay off debts owed to a local loan shark, and his quest for the money leads into a series of ever more desperate decisions.
The story cleverly cuts back and forth from past and present playing out the events that led up to Ana and Saul's paths crossing which both alters and connects their lives forever.
It is absolutely baffling that a film like this was released virtually unnoticed and in only four U.S theatres for a limited run of two weeks, didn't even get a UK cinema release, and gained practically no publicly or awards. It is without doubt one of the best independent films I have seen in the past decade. Both Minnie Driver and Jeremy Renner's performances are nothing short of phenomenal. The direction is superb, the cinematography striking and the skilfully paced story gradually builds up that by the time the film hits an hour long it has you by the throat unable to take your eyes of the events unfolding on screen.
Profound and deeply moving, this haunting film will leave you thinking about the story and characters long after you've seen it. If you enjoyed films like `Shotgun Stories', `Monsters Ball' and `The King' then `Take' should be at the top of your things to see.

What a sad story! Two lives intersect and both get ruined.
No, this is not a spoiler, the opening scene is the ending, so no surprises there. It's the journey that's important.

If you hate flashbacks, jump cuts and all that jazz don't watch it.
If you love sad stories of unfortunate events that turn lives up side down please do!

Without being one, I think parents will have an extra hard time watching this, but in the good "I actually felt something"-kind of way.

Do yourself a favor and watch this. It's time well spent.

Excellent cast, the films tells two stories, only bringing the two of them together at the very end.
Seller performance by Jeremy Renner, with Minnie Driver bring the perfect counter lead.
Pity the film is not seen more, I would never have found it but for Amazon recommendations, when I brought Renner's film The Town.
The film is intense, and might not be for everyone, but I would recommend it

You will love this terrific film

TAKE is about the lives of three people / Anna her young son Jesse & Saul ,who over the course of one day there paths violently collide together for only a relitively brief moment in time, but even though the time was brief after this encounter all there lives will be changed forever - but over the course of day 2 shown in the movie ,a type of closure does come , but its some 10 years later , and the closure is not for all concerned

The story of TAKE like CRASH and BABEL is told in a disjointed fashion with the characters timelines being out of sink ,so you have to stick with it - it covers the events of two full days / the day there lives collide & the day that they get some closure - TAKE is a bit slow paced but big on story , its very very emotional in places so dont be surprised if you find yourself in tears at some parts of this film , I think everyone might not agree with this movies final message but I do think everyone will agree that this movie tells its story very powerfully indeed, the acting is just amazing by all involved - I personally had not seen MINNIE DRIVER for a while in a film but she really shines in this one and she has to portray every emotion imagineable , JEREMY RENNER is fantastic and before this i had only seen him in THE ASSASSINATION OF JESSE JAMES BY THE COWARD ROBERT FORD and he was great in that too , the young kid JESSE is played by BOBBY COLEMAN and he does a fine job ,its beautifully shot with great production values

On the dvd the special features are - dvd commentary with director and producer ( which is great ) ,NPR radio interview , Directors video and theatrical trailer , all in all a terrific little package and an extremely emotional film - bravo :)

It is without doubt one of the best independent films I have seen in the past decade. What's even more baffling is the UK region 2 release looks to have sold out of it's limited run and it's unknown if the film will get a re-release on DVD in the UK.
Both Minnie Driver and Jeremy Renner's performances are nothing short of phenomenal.
