Ruth Coombes' film adaptation of Julie McCarthy's novel (the first one of a planned trilogy) is, to my knowledge, the first film adaptation of a work of fiction from a fictional author. It's an experiment which, I feel, has been successful. The film is divided into two parts: one a profile of the main character, Theodora, and her struggles with mental illness and the second, the "long road" that leads to the finale, is her return home. Theodora (the young actress who plays the lead) is a very talented actress and it is no surprise that she was the lead in this film. In a few words, the movie is very beautiful. The scenery is magnificent. The photography is stunning. The editing is perfect. The characters are interesting and well developed. The acting is good. The dialogues are moving. And the direction is wonderful. The first part of the film is very slow. We are introduced to the family in a very slow way. There is not much of a story in the beginning. However, we slowly realize that the film is about the struggles that Theodora (the mother) and her husband (the doctor) have with mental illness. We feel the agony that they go through. Theodora and her husband are suffering and they have to go through that pain. But, in a way, they are glad that they are able to help their family. Theodora's husband is a psychiatrist. He treats patients. Theodora herself has schizophrenia. When she is able to get better, she is able to give a new life to the family. Theodora's husband is, in his own way, the support that she needs. This is what the film is about. I'm not saying that this film is a classic. It's not a masterpiece. But, I have to say that this film is beautiful and very worth seeing. It has a good story. I recommend it.

If you're a fan of Lee and Lee's daughter (a.k.a. Rebecca Miller) you're going to want to see this film. Lee, while not the most good-looking guy, has an endless supply of "pop" (gays, etc.). Lee has a tendency to drop in one of the f-word in every sentence. In this movie, he uses it so frequently it makes you wonder why it's necessary. You can see it in the little boy (Hezekiah Baldwin) talking to the girl (Shirley Stolz) in the school bus, and also the kid who steals Lee's hat in the locker room. Lee has a huge crush on another boy in the movie. Lee (and his family) have been in a relationship for decades. He and his family are the stereotypical upper class white family. And then there's the neighborhood girl (Maria Bello). She's all in for the "Fifty Shades of Grey" books. Lee's parents love her and have a special relationship with her. Lee's sister has an affair with a "peeping tom" (and he's the best at it). And then there's Rebecca Miller. Her boyfriend is played by Clive Owen and she's the most loathed girl in the school. Lee has a crush on her and thinks she's beautiful. So there's that. Then there's the boy who steals her hat. You can see this guy at all times and is his every-day self. Then there's the guy who's cute but also has some very sad moments. He's "the kid from the neighborhood." This guy, named Eric, is a very talented actor and actor, but his character is a little one dimensional. You can see him all the time. At the end of the movie, you'll be like "well that's it?" This movie is directed by Donnie Wahlberg. He has a good handle on the camera and the editing. There are several funny moments. It's one of those movies you can watch with your whole family and it'll make you laugh a lot. But I wouldn't say it's one of the funniest movies of the year. I don't know if it was because I'm a female and I have a little hard time laughing with Lee and Lee's family, but I thought the humor was funny and I loved the way Lee and Lee's family was shown. I don't think I've laughed as much as I did in a while.

This is a nice, funny film about an old couple who lived in Paris and owned a house, a cafe, a bath, a playhouse and a post office. These people have a fascinating life story, a colorful life, and a history of accomplishment. They are not your typical elderly couple, but a group of people who seem to have been struggling in their own ways and as individuals. They were well adjusted people, with a sense of humor and a great sense of life. They had a lot of fun, and a lot of material they could have made use of. The film is not like any other film I've seen. It is a mix of facts and opinions, and the pace is fluid and, if anything, quick. It is not a documentary, but a natural comedy, of sorts. It is funny, witty, but at the same time is not "hilarious" or in the same league as something like "Shine" or "The Office". It is rather lighter than that, and has a more domestic feel to it. The film is somewhat surreal, in a good way. I think this was the main reason I enjoyed it so much. The characters are not happy people, and the plot is not about being happy. I liked the fact that it didn't try to be a lighthearted comedy. There are scenes that are pretty serious, and they are really funny. They are not annoying, but the film was not trying to be funny. I think that is the way most good comedies are. If they weren't funny, they wouldn't be funny. It is not the same as "The Office", which is about a workplace with a happy ending. That is supposed to be funny, but it isn't. They are not trying to be comedic, but serious. The ending is not happy, it is just different. You don't know if they will be happy, but they don't seem to be trying. The film doesn't take itself too seriously, but is also not a comedy. It is not meant to be lighthearted, or funny. The humor is more about the characters and their relationships with each other, rather than the comedy. It is a nice balance. The humor is not wacky, but has a lot of depth, as does the film. It is a nice film, but it is not the same as a "Hilarious" film. It is different, and I think that is what made it more appealing. It is still funny, but it is more realistic, more in touch with reality. The acting is solid. Richard Gere is quite funny, and pretty much perfect. He really does have a sense of humor, and he is really good at it. His relationship with Helena Bonham Carter is interesting, and her performance is actually quite good. I don't think he was that good, but his performance was better than I expected. I think that is because the character was believable, he did have a good sense of humor, and he was able to keep it in his own world. Emma Thompson is very good, as the supporting character. The movie is pretty good, and worth watching, but I would recommend that you try to watch it at least once, because you might like it. 7/10

Cecile De France, who had been born in Paris, with her younger sister, is the daughter of a real-estate developer and his wife. In fact, he was an architect who had married a great-aunt, a woman who'd been a Polish orphan, a refugee from the Nazis and was also the daughter of a wealthy Jewish family. The film is set in the 1970s, after the First World War, in Paris, and is essentially a study of the real-estate developer's life. His sons are such impulsive misfits that their father feels uncomfortable at times, and is worried about them. He cares for them to the point of making money from the sale of their belongings. The story is based on De France's real life experiences, as well as the experiences of a real-estate developer who comes across the story in a book, and has no idea what his daughters' parents are actually like. De France plays herself, in a small part, and is all alone in her portrayal. She's terrific, and she's not the only one who seems to make this movie work. The film isn't so much a drama as it is a study of how a man who has so little of himself in his life, is so upset that his son is having the same feelings. The writing is fine, and the editing is very well done. The only thing that's a bit of a disappointment is the direction. In the first half, the film seems to be going in a direction that the director wanted it to go in, but then, the direction switches abruptly to something else, and the film seems to lose all direction. The film is also slow at times, and at times it seems as if the director doesn't know what he wants to show us. Overall, this is a good film, and I highly recommend it.
