What made this movie so great in my opinion?
LORDMOGY365
I watched the whole movie because, just as in real life, some folks are just too crazy to let go of.
W.D.
Great to see Ally Sheedy again, and she plays a goofy,seemingly-whacked character.

In the 1930s a film like this would have been described as a "Screwball Comedy" -- stick-in-the mud guy who is feeling sorry for himself after his wife leaves him with his best friend meets a whacko woman who changes his life forever. In other words, a truly enjoyable film, perfect for viewing on a Friday evening.

What makes this film special are (1) a great performance by Ally Sheedy as the whacko girlfriend, and (2) the fact that the fim was directed by Adrienne Shelly, a highly promising young actress and director who had appeared in several of independent film director Hal Hartley's films. Her performance in "Trust" should not be missed by anyone who enjoys over-the-top black humor.

Unfortunately, her artistic promise will never be fully realized. On November 1, 2006 Diego Pillco, a 19-year-old, allegedly confessed to killing Shelly after she complained about the noise he was making in the apartment below hers. She left a grieving husband and 2-year-old daughter.

She will be missed.

I rented this movie after seeing WAITRESS, Adrienne Shelley's last film. I think I like I'LL TAKE YOU THERE even better than WAITRESS! Both are terrific! I am ordering I'LL TAKE YOU THERE right now, so that I can have my own copy. It is a quirky, creative, charming, fun, movie with an interesting mix of songs (but no soundtrack available apparently.) Adrienne Shelley co wrote the main song for this movie, as she also did for WAITRESS. This is a movie that will take you off guard! Lots of fun!

I just finished watching this extremely enjoyable and inventive (the flashback sequences are easily some of the BEST that I've ever seen integrated into a feature film!!) romantic-comedy earlier today -- and couldn't wait to rave about it!!! If it wasn't written with Ally Sheedy in mind (much the way "The Breakfast Club" evidently was), it might as well have been, because Sheedy's arguably at her absolute most endearing and sympathetic here (playing a "broken" woman who not only finds solace and strength ultimately from a man she really shouldn't even want to TALK to ever again -- and he, just as surprisingly, finding plenty of solace and strength in her in return).

Anyone who even momentarily doubts the unceasingly smart writing AND directing instincts of the late Adrienne Shelly -- who, sadly, was murdered at age 40 (in 2006, in her Manhattan apartment) by a 19-year-old illegal immigrant from Ecuador: read more about Shelly at Wikipedia) -- definitely needs to watch "I'll Take You There" ... as well as Shelly's similarly-endearing "Waitress" and also "Serious Moonlight" (the latter adroitly directed by "Suburgatory"/"Curb Your Enthusiasm" actress Cheryl Hines).

The acting, photography, music (Shelly even co-wrote some of the movie's songs -- just as she did for "Waitress" and a number of her other low-budget, people-oriented cinematic gems) and the rest of the film's aspects are all first-rate, with profuse kudos, especially, to the actress and actor who play Sheedy's grandmother and grandmother's boyfriend, respectively. Those two all by themselves are MORE than enough reason to rent, or even buy (I did the latter), this superb movie. A++++++++

The Bastard Song
Written by Adrienne Shelly & Andrew Hollander
(from the movie I'll Take You There)

It's a world of suffering
In a sea of pain.
No matter how much sun you bring
You're pummeled by the rain.

So what's the use in getting up
And what's the use in tryin'?
And what's the use in listening
When everybody's lyin'?

Don't let the heartless get you down.
Don't greet the heartless at your door.
Don't live among the heartless.

The life you lead just turns to shit.
Your joy it falls to treason.
There isn't any rhyme to it
There isn't any reason.

Don't let the bastards get you down.
Don't greet the bastards at your door.
Don't live among the bastards.

In this dead-end universe
Where there seems to be no grace
There are heavens on the map
There are humans in the race
There are people you can trust
When you need some decency
You can trust someone like you
You can trust someone like me.

Don't let the strangers get you down.
Don't greet the strangers at your door.
Don't live among the strangers
My friend.

Don't live among the strangers
The heartless
The bastards
My love...
