I recently lost my best friend to illness (not cancer but similar) and it's been almost a year. I haven't cried over her. I continue on with my life thinking if I just push forward and don't feel anything, that things will be okay. When I stumbled upon this movie on netflix, I thought it would be a cheezy teen indie dramedy similar to countless others I've seen and at best, it will atleast put me to sleep quickly (I'm an insomniac). Suddenly, I stepped into Keith's world and found myself enthralled.
The acting was superb to say the least, and while I did enjoy Elisabeth Harnois' performance, I have to say that Jesse McCartney was phenomenal as Keith. His performance was impeccable, and so incredibly believable. The chemistry between these two was electric. I felt it's waves coming at me through the TV set. I can go on to discuss the writing, plot, beautiful imagery, etc, etc. But, we love movies not simply for what they are, but for the way they make us FEEL. This movie touched me and awakened a place in me that I thought had died a year ago, with my best friend. After seeing this movie, something happened. My heart opened up, and I felt sad, and happy, and full again.Read more ›
Keith is one of the most beautiful, powerful, serious, joyful, triumphant, and universally relevant movies any of us will ever see. It is about what it means to be a human being in a random world, about how it feels to be inside--and outside--a powerful social and political system.
But above all Keith is about love--not the phony, sentimental melodrama of Hollywood romance, and not the impulsive, hormone-fueled engine of adolescence, but the love that selects two people, draws them together into one, and carries them together through every challenge that comes against them. Keith is about real joy and real pain, about life and death and everything in between.
Keith is a remarkable and very rare work of art. Every word, every gesture, every expression on every actor's face, every scene, every moment of this movie is perfect. Characters emerge and develop and grow and interact and fail and overcome as they should in every movie but almost never do.
I've been watching and loving movies for almost 60 years, and I've seen thousands of great ones, but if I could keep only one DVD in my collection, Keith would be it.
I've read the one star reviews of Keith and in my opinion the reviewers are either mentally challenged or simply never considered looking beyond the surface of a story.
This is what most reviewers here don't see. Harnois lived in a box. Her values were determined by what she was told from early childhood they should be. Success meant going to a top 10 University, doing well academically, and scoring with the guys. She was happy in this artificial world until someone from the outside came knocking.
In McCartney's world success meant waking up for the next day. He dealt with his affliction by humorous and sarcastic deflection. At the same time he liked Harnois and decided to introduce himself into her plastic world.
As you see the two of them slowly falling in love with each other - one knowingly, the other unconscious of it - you begin to see Harnois breaking the shell which kept her prisoner which she never knew was there. Her love causes her to break out of societies paradigm and discover what living life on her own terms is like. As the movie ends she is living it out on McCartney's terms but you know she will soon break out into her own.
It's a journey of self-discovery and in the end is truly a joyful film, well acted and well written. Hell, I even liked the music!
