Now that I've seen it...
Is there a conspiracy?
Did the movie creators pay a whole bunch of people to write good reviews here and on IMDB?
Or am I fundamentally misunderstanding something?
On what level is this a good movie?
It looks like a high schooler's project.
Albeit with a good budget, that is.. They even got a B-list actor (Henry Ian Cusick of the Lost fame) to play a supporting role.
But that's where the good part ends.
Now with the bad:
The characters are flat and undeveloped.
The acting is ... ugh.
All the way through the end of the movie I was wondering why it is that I should care about any of the characters.
The script and its execution are both awful.
The plot holes and omissions are many.. A struggling writer has a nice apartment in Glasgow and a country house?
And even though she eventually writes her first breakthrough book, the whole story of her eventual success is very unconvincing.
I am quoting excerpts from an IMDB review by rosiemary2009, who expressed my thoughts almost word for word:
2. [T]he infuriating woman dressed as a 60s prostitute who does nothing to contribute to the film but sits in on every scene exposing her boobs
4. [T]he male protagonist cannot seem to decide his origin - have difficulty deciding if he is of Scottish, Indian or French descent due to his appalling acting
5. [T]he background music sounds like its been composed by a Scottish 10 year old boy band
10. A tragic attempt at comedy at the end fails miserably when it appears our hero has keeled over from a tragic case of 3 minute pneumonia"
Two stars for trying, seeing as it's an indie movie. If it were a Hollywood flick, I'd give it zero stars..
