Product Description

Broken love. Forbidden passion. Self-discovery. Set in the lush hills and cobbled streets of the Amalfi Coast, Jane (Kate Bosworth, BLUE CRUSH) is searching for something more from her life. She loves her husband (Iddo Goldberg), but the silence between them is growing. Her work, writing her grandmother's memoir (voiced by Claire Bloom), immerses her in the quiet beauty of the town, its islands...and finally, in the romantic embrace of a younger man (Jamie Blackley). Jane must decide where her passions will take her, and who she really wants to be, as she documents the discoveries of AND WHILE WE WERE HERE.

Writer/director Kat Coiro's intimate indie "And While We Were Here" is one of those small pictures where big life decisions are made with little verbalization. For most of its scant 84 minute running time, the movie has its lead character (played by Kate Bosworth) wander through beautiful locales near Italy's Amalfi Coast. As she takes in the city, she reflects on her current life and possibly imagines a different one. Bosworth is lovely, to be sure, with a new world weary grace that is quite dignified. In fact, this may be one of my favorite performances from her. But despite this commitment to the role, the audience still has to intuit much about her. The screenplay gives us a glimpse of the primary characters without ever getting too close, we rarely see the exterior manifestation of what anyone is truly thinking. This is especially true of Bosworth. And as she is the emotional centerpiece of the story, I never felt as involved with her inner turmoil as I might have preferred. Most of the action is internalized and so the picture can seem rather aimless and methodical. It had moments that ached with melancholy and others that were lushly romantic, but I remained at an arm's length throughout most of the picture.

Bosworth plays the wife of a concert musician (Iddo Goldberg). They arrive in Italy for a big production. So while he spends his day at rehearsals, she drinks in the sights and works to transcribe a WWII era memoir based on the recordings of her grandmother (Claire Bloom, in a voice only performance). Keeping mostly to herself, she encounters an enthusiastic young man (Jamie Blackley) who is clearly smitten. At first he seems like an annoyance to the aloof Bosworth. But the more he talks and talks and talks, he charms her with his zest for life and vast array of bad jokes.

I'm a pretty open-minded movie watcher, and find great things in just about every movie. So even with the 2.5/5 stars on IMDB, I thought hey let's give this a try.

NOPE. Without giving anything away the movie follows main character (Kate Bosworth)on a trip to Ischia with her husband (super sweet and nice guy/violin player), and she has an affair, for reasons you will find out VERY EARLY in the movie if you actually decide to watch it. All whilst she is writing a book and listening to tapes of her grandmother (which I didn't feel did anything for the story line).

This movie upset me, and that is the reason I gave it 2 stars instead of just one, because the ending will surprise you, and no matter who you are (and who you choose) it will upset you. Which I think is hard for any writer or director to accomplish.

I watched this film primarily motivated by the opportunity to see some excellent shots of Italian beach scenery -- but didn't have high hopes for an original storyline. Overall, it was ... well ... a "quiet" film with no big surprises. Not that I need crap blowing up all the time (sooooo over the current state of the movie industry -- hello, we're not all 15 year old boys). But, it was definitely cliche given the oh-so-empty marriage narrative, and the characters themselves weren't really that compelling. All in all, though, it wasn't too terrible (again -- ITALY scenery) -- and Kate B pulled off a somewhat decent character study. As for the other reviewer's disappointment in the ending? Well, if it made you so upset, then the movie probably succeeded more than you thought it did. I personally think it ended just as it should have == it was realistic and in perfect alignment as to what the main character needed to do to truly move forward in her life journey. Bottom line? This is an okay rental (I actually would say 2.5 stars if Amazon had a 2.5 option) -- but maybe wait 'til it goes down in price a bit.
