How About You

A movie directed by Anthony Byrne

< read all 3 reviews

Heartwarming, but not a comedy

  • Aug 1, 2010
Rating:
+3
is a heartwarming film about a young girl who brings order and love to an elderly residential community. The handful of elderly residents all have wonderfully quirky personalities - odd, but realistic. Combined with some unique camera angles (the back of a car, listening to a discussing by looking through a door window), it has visual appeal as well. The whole thing feels very organic and genuine.

A note of warning: this isn't a comedy by any stretch of the imagination, even though several reviews have described it as "hilarious." It actually comes across as a bit melancholy at times. Don't rent it thinking you're in for a big laugh.
