Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

After decades in the business, Gus Van Sant still feels like a new filmmaker, approaching each project with an energy and clarity of vision that makes even his less successful films worthy of consideration. Van Sant's empathy and lack of calculation keeps Restless from succumbing to terminal tweeness, but it's an awfully close call. Smushing together elements of both Harold and Maude and Love Story, the script follows mortality-obsessed teen Enoch (Henry Hopper, son of Dennis), who meets beautiful cancer patient Annabel (Mia Wasikowska) after crashing a funeral. As the two prepare for Annabel's last few weeks on Earth, Enoch's own reasons for carrying on are called into question. While both Wasikowska and Hopper do their best to flesh out their material, first-time screenwriter Jason Lew seems oddly reluctant to delve into the inner lives of his characters, focusing more on oddball emo curlicues (Hopper's best friend is the board game-loving ghost of a kamikaze pilot) than what really makes these two tick. Thankfully, Van Sant does what he can to diffuse the ethereal whimsy. Shooting in his adopted home of Portland, the director successfully evokes a feeling of magic realism, indulging the main characters in their flights of fancy while also ensuring that the reality of the situation lurks just outside the frame. Viewers with a low tolerance for preciousness may want to look elsewhere, but Restless definitely has its moments, particularly when it cuts through the vintage clothing and talk about fluffernutter sandwiches to hit a genuine vein of feeling. Rare is the director who can make an audience feel sympathy for an imaginary friend. --Andrew Wright

Produced by Brian Grazer, Ron Howard, Bryce Dallas Howard and Gus Van Sant.

5.0 out of 5 stars "I Believe In The Fairest Of The Seasons" - Nico February 20, 2012
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
Ever since I viewed "Good Will Hunting", I have been a fan of the director of this film, Gus Van Sant. He seems to be able to lift up a relationship piece between the younger age group while drawing, at times, heart wrenching and direct palpable emotion from it. Van Sant had me wanting to know these two vastly different people. He then presented their story in a believable and curious way.

In the film "Restless", Enoch (Henry Hopper) and Annabelle (Mia Wasikowska) are the two young leads. They meet up in the oddest of places and situations appearing to be immediately intrigued by the other. You could say that Enoch is brooding, and darkly questions what life is all about. While breezy and lovely Annabelle is imaginative, and at peace with her own world. She is a self-named naturalist, and believes that there is nothing beyond our existence now.

Enoch has great cause to believe the way that he does. He dons black and views the world as a faulted place. The always soothing Annabelle tries to view the world through the approach of Darwin, idolizing his theories, and is always interested in the biology that surrounds her. This also includes Enoch as the two unlikely sorts fall in love with each other. Their developing love story is beguiling to watch unfold. These two different viewpoints may clash at first, although with a little time and a lot of personal interest, this couple takes on an almost magical feel. This film doesn't pull punches in the direction of feelings. I felt deeply with these characters. Annabelle, along with her own intense situation, combined with Enoch's also, is as provocative throughout. Add to the couple Enoch's very mysterious Japanese friend, and sidekick, Hiroshi (Chin Han), and we have a blend of realism and fantasy.

Gus Van Sant probably understands the minds of youngsters better than any director around and he proves it again in this rhapsodic film about loss and love and loss again. His cast is so well selected that they seem to be an ensemble from a stage company, so well integrated are their relationships in this beautiful film written by Jason Lew.

Enoch Brae (Henry Hopper, son of Dennis Hopper, and a very fine actor) survived a car accident in which his parents were killed: he remained in a coma and missed their funeral and the chance to in some way say goodbye. Living with his Aunt Mabel (Jane Adams), he now spends his days not attending school but instead going to strangers' funerals. One funeral organizer (Christopher D. Harder) notices his repeated appearances and tries to have him arrested for trespassing but he is saved by a strange girl named Annabel (Mia Wasikowska in a brilliant performance). Annabel also attends funerals: she tells Enoch that she works with children with cancer at a hospital. Enoch is wary of making friends - his only ally being a Japanese kamikaze pilot ghost Hiroshi Takahashi (Ryo Kase) with whom he talks about everything. But gradually Enoch and Annabel bond and Annabel reveals to Enoch that she doesn't work with `cancer kids', she is one - she has brain cancer and is on short term time. Annabel's sister Elizabeth (Schyler Fisk) and mother Rachel (Luisa Strus) accept Enoch's growing supportive love for Annabel. As Enoch grows form his experience with Annabel he no longer needs the presence of his ghost or his need for attending funerals and instead spends his time giving Annabel the best three months (remaining) of her life. How the story draws to an end is so enchanting that to share it would deprive the viewer of the magic of this film.

Format:Blu-ray
`Restless' is one of those movies that starts off really awkward. It doesn't really `begin' as much as it just `starts'. It just kind of drops you in the laps of the protagonists and leaves you wondering what kind of odd, strange, bizarre film you've got yourself into watching for at least ten minutes. Then, somewhat magically, it all starts to separate and clear and next thing you know you're watching something with a unique charm and visual personality.

This is far from perfect, but there is an air on imperfection in nearly all of Gus's work.

`Restless' tells the story of a young girl dying of cancer who falls in love with a young boy who's suffering with the loss of his parents. He is coping by conversing with the ghost of a Japanese kamikaze pilot and he's horribly socially awkward, but they are kindred spirits in that they are calmly walking towards death while the rest of the world around them tries to emote something over everything. As they come to terms with the fast approaching death, they fall farther in love and begin to heal in many ways.

The initial plot is somewhat hokey and regurgitated of a lot of teen sob romance stories. It sounds a little Nicolas Sparks, but it has a deadpan charm that is achieved from Gus's directorial choices. Mia Wasikowska is such a fresh find, and her performance here is delightful and honest and very moving when needed. Henry Hopper is less successful (he comes across almost high in a lot of scenes and fails to deliver when necessary). He actually lets the weaknesses in the script (that breakdown with the doctor in particular) get the better of his performance. He can't rise above. I find it sad that the script is a tad shallow in that it never really `goes there' even though it hints a lot to attempting to.
