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.

Janie wants answers to big questions. Her husband cannot or will not humour her any more. A new acquaintance gives her an apt response, "You need to be less serious."

Like many who resort to asking abstract questions, Janie has a concrete loss. Or, I should say, she also has concrete loss to go with her nostalgia for things that didn't happen and fear of the future. While she and her husband stroll about town, they pass by a spray-painted wall where the camera lingers on the words "Il Futuro Non E Scritto."

Their interactions are wonderful to watch. One is a failed bedtime discussion of DFW's suicide; her husband just won't bite. Another goes like this. Janie asks, "Do you think everything we've been through actually does us any good in the long run? Or do we make out our struggle to meaningful because that's all most of us have?" Her husband, who's filling a kettle at the bathroom sink, gives himself a look in the mirror that is just spot on. When he returns to the sitting room he says, "Next time we get to Italy, let's get a proper kitchen." Ha ha ha. He is a nice man who says things like, "People are depending on me. I've committed myself. I have to go to work."

"I don't know what you want me to tell you, Janie," says her husband, as do all of us! By contrast, Janie's would-be younger man says things like, "We are all connected by this red string... It can be tangled, but never broken." I mean, there is no competition there, apples and oranges. Her husband's response is practical. Her young man's response is metaphoric, so, I presume, more appealing to her. She tells her husband that the young man reminds her of what it was like to be 19. Her husband, who knew her at 19, reminds her that she was not at all carefree.
