After winning a Screenplay Oscar for "Milk," Dustin Lance Black probably had a fair amount of freedom and leverage to pursue a project that meant something personal to him. The intimate and quirky "Virginia" is undoubtedly the result of that liberation (and I'm sure it didn't hurt that Milk's director Gus Van Sant got an Executive Producer credit as well). Taking the directorial reigns and writing the screenplay for "Virginia," Black proves that he has no shortage of ideas. While that definitely makes "Virginia" feel different, it also makes it seem overstuffed and slightly schizophrenic. The story veers from comedy and satire to tragedy and melodrama and never feels particularly cohesive. Furthermore, so many plot threads (and even characters) are introduced only to languish as undefined, underutilized, or completely irrelevant. Don't get me wrong, I think there's an interesting story at the heart of "Virginia." I just thought the movie lacked sufficient follow-through for the many disparate elements that it tried to incorporate. This sense of chaos and lack of focus kept me distanced from the drama and I never fully connected at an emotional level to the action.

A very blonde Jennifer Connelly plays the titular Virginia, a mother suffering from some form of mental illness. I am never completely comfortable with using mental illness as a plot point, but here is seemed especially specious as its impact only seems to surface (and then fluctuate) as the plot needs it to at any given point. Sometimes, the illness is even played for laughs. Connelly is wrapped up in an illicit affair with the Mormon sheriff and Senatorial candidate Ed Harris.

"Dear Lord please let each of us come out of this in one piece." Virginia (Connelly) is a single mother raising her teen son in a small town. She is not sure of who the father is but she has been having an affair with the local married sheriff (Harris) for almost 20 years and wants it to be his. When he announces his run for state senate things begin to get tricky. This is a very hard movie to explain there seems to be a lot of sub plots going on but it is not hard to keep up with them. Connelly plays the character perfect and while she is psychologically disturbed it is not over the top at all and very believable. I enjoyed this but to me this is another example of a movie's cast being better then the movie. This is still very much worth watching and is one of the better indie movies to come out in a long time it is still a little slow. This movie is very emotional though and really runs you through as many as it can before the ending which is great. Overall, great acting really helps this movie out and this is a good movie that is worth watching but not really one you can see over and over. Amanda liked it more then I did but I give it a B.

Format: DVD
Director Dustin Lance Blank writes this film in the same fashion as the diagnosis given to Virginia (Jennifer Connelly); Traumatic Onset Schizophrenia. Her Social Worker, Mrs. Whitaker (Yeardley Smith of "The Simpsons"), divulges this information only one time while watching. In the beginning of the movie we are introduced, in hindsight, to a tragedy. This situation then goes onward to set the whole tone of the picture; which bounces to and fro with a quirk of characters. The entire story can be indecisive and schizoid ... At times.

An abusive standpoint is introduced, from the position of an authoritative figure, towards a vulnerable and emotionally disturbed single mother. Ed Harris contributes an uncaring man, and a monster of his own circumstances, which, in turn, marks Connelly's (in my opinion) spot-on performance. Blank directs without any real cohesiveness in the background while defining the character portrayals tightly in the forefront. A standout for me was Harrison Gilbertson portraying Virginia's son, Emmett. Most of the recounting comes from his point of view, in this off-kilter, coming of age tale set through his life's situation.

The local Sheriff, Richard Tipton (Ed Harris), is married to Rosanna (Amy Madigan) and they have a daughter, Jessie (Emma Roberts), together. He also is running a campaign for State Legislator and is heavily involved in the Mormon Church, just as heavily as he has been involved with Virginia.

Young Emmett inevitably falls in love with Jessie. This is disgusting to Richard, who then becomes hell-bent on splitting them up and uses extreme measures for his own purposes. Emmett is highly protective of Virginia while she remains heavily reliant on him and emotes that, "he's the best thing I ever did".

The movie kept my interest. The actress did a very good job playing the role of Virginia who was a little "off". The story line was really good and I would recommend this movie to others.

One of those films that doesn't quiet gel. Great cast and solid performances. Despite shortcomings there were some good laughs, and do recommend.

I had the opportunity to experience this film when it was being shot..(some of the scenes in the Sheriff's home were filmed in a home just around the corner from ours.) I truly enjoyed seeing all of the locations around West Michigan and the City of Holland, the Lake Michigan beach scenes were awesome!!. We had the good fortune to see this film at the Waterfront Film Festival in Saguatuck,MI, with some of the cast in attendance along with Mr. Hopwood DePree from tic toc studios. I thought it was a very good film and told a good story of a woman trying to cope with her problems and trying to raise a son in the process. I am purchasing this DVD to have a lasting reminder of how close hollywood came to my neighborhood.
