This show is about a guy (Ashton Kutcher) who's twin sister was murdered and how he is able to deal with the loss, the trial, and others involved. In a support group he meats a woman (Michelle Pfeiffer) who's husband was also murdered. They begin to spend time together and lean on each other for support.
I really liked this movie, especially because there were a few shocking moments. It may seem slow to some but I think it's slow on purpose to show that the characters are mourning their loved ones. The colors are muted with grayish, blueish tints which again set the mood perfectly.
So I recommend you see it, not necessarily to be entertained, but to be moved.
This was such a disappointment! My husband and I had high expectations for this movie that weren't even close to being fulfilled. Such great actors waisted on such a boring, plotless film.
Come on, Kevin Spacey? George Clooney? Ewin McGregor? Jeff Bridges? I thought you all were smarter than that.
Especially you Mr. Spacey.
I thought it was pretty stupid but I generally don't like chick flicks so I may be a little biased. The plot is similar to A Christmas Carol where Scrooge is visited by three ghosts but instead of Scrooge, it's Matthew McConaughhey and instead of ghosts its ex girlfriends.
So you already know the story line, plus it's chick flick so you already know how it is going to end. There, now you don't have to watch it.
A therapist living in Hollywood who's clientele are all famous stars struggles to come to terms with his wife's death. Using marijuana, booze and cigarettes to get by, one wonders how can he help others if he can't even help himself?
I did enjoy this dark drama, I love Kevin Spacey and his performance did not disappoint! It is a slow moving show with psychological meanings behind everything so this is not for those looking for action or a good time. It requires you to think and to feel and if you can do that, then you will enjoy the movie too.
