Based on a true story, My Sister's Keeper stars Kathy Bates as Christine, who since childhood has suffered from a debilitating mental illness. Spending most of her life in and out of various institutions, Christine has long yearned for independence, but is unable to wrest free of her controlling mother, Helen (Lynn Redgrave). Upon Helen's death, her other daughter, Judy (Elizabeth Perkins), a successful, self-absorbed art director who has deliberately distanced herself from her family, is appointed trustee of the troubled Christine. The rest of the film chronicles Judy's frustrated efforts to balance her sister's needs with her own, and Christine's ongoing ambition to stand on her own two feet. .

(us) wrote: Completely bare bones, "Falling Overnight" is a love story using the streets of Los Angeles as a backdrop. Presented as completely natural, it embodies a quality of independent film-making that projects every day life in the most interesting of ways. Despite this ability to appear organic, the presentation often falls short of actually connecting, delivered too haphazard and with too much freestyle. What helps the film come off natural is the fact that the leading actors are fairly new to acting, having appeared in just a few things prior to this film. They have a vulnerability and nakedness to the lens that leaves them wide open, appearing sincere and genuinely filled with emotion. However, seasoned actors have proven far better in roles like this, for example Anton Yelchin and Felicity Jones have a much more impressive showing in "Like Crazy", another authentic love story that strictly focuses on the evolution of love with a realistic and unabashed way. Rising above the more melodramatic fare in the independent drama genre, the distinct plot helps carry the film along in memorable fashion. Our lead, Elliot Carson (Parker Croft) prepares to have brain surgery in the morning, a risky operation that could lead to the worst possible outcome. Keeping his parents at a distance and having no real friends to speak of, Elliot uses a chance encounter with the adorable Chloe Webb (Emilia Zoryan) as a welcomed distraction. Traveling between an art show to house party to biking through the L.A. nightlife, the characters form a connection, with the innocence of new love briefly eclipsing Elliot's pending condition. Yet even with that innocence, these young characters project a maturity that lets them deal with these complicated issues in their own adult ways.The chemistry is undeniable between Croff and Zoryan, playing off each other as if there is no script, with the dialogue coming off very spontaneous and authentic. The only problem I had with the film spawns from that spontaneity, which often results in strange sidebars that have no real connection to the plot and only land in the film to either pad the runtime or to profess a reality that either the writer, director, or actor feels strongly about. Coming off too real, or coming off as if the director simply turned on a camera and let life play out in front of it, is not what an audience wants to see from a fictional piece. Most of the scenes in the film do feel natural and do still hold a quality of cinematic enjoyment, watching this young love blossom despite the pending doom that hangs over one of the characters. Emilia Zoryan, in particular, commands her delivery and holds a poise that is much sturdier than her counterparts. Sincerity fills the film, and nothing brings this out more than the music throughout, especially captured by my favorite moment, as the birthday party disperses to a tunnel concert where the artist Emperor X is performing a song called "Addison Acceh" which he strums and screams beautifully. This moment made the film for me, and years from now, when I remember this film, it will be this small scene that comes to mind. With the ability to evoke emotion with very little effort, this little drama works just fine as a low budget, independent love story. However, having witnessed so many other films from small-time directors accomplish the same level of emotion with even more brilliance and truly stand out performances, it is hard to say that "Falling Overnight" is a complete success. But for what it is, the film captures a sentiment and is a respectable first feature from director Conrad Jackson, especially considering his involvement as executive producer on the wretched 2009 surf drama "The Outside".

(ag) wrote: VERY underrated. Aside from "Star Wars" and "Indiana Jones," this is the very best movie that has ever come from Lucasfilm. It's such a shame that the DVD is so damn hard to come by...
(kr) wrote: Woody Allen's love letter to a bygone era of radio broadcasting. Seeping with nostalgia and memories, this a great period film which seeks to capture the quirks and scandals of the radio industry, while simultaneously showing how the radio was a linchpin of the working class household. The story flits between a handful of main characters through a series of vignettes, accompanied by the classic Woody Allen narration.While I can more easily relate to the romanticism of other Woody Allen classics such as Annie Hall, or Manhattan, there is a certain charm to the story as seen by a reminiscing boy looking back through rose-tinted glasses.

(ca) wrote: Not as good as the first and second films, but still great as part of the whole series. Nice to see a different setting to the prison of the first 2 films. Still has the same hallmarks of the series, including the fantastic theme tune, sung by Meiko Kaji herself.
(jp) wrote: This is a really bad movie. Even the director didn't like it. It's supposed to star Jayne Mansfield but she was pregnant when they made the movie so they put her in a lot of tent dresses that hid her figure. The real star is Phyliss Diller. She was the only funny character in the movie. The background story was a group of teenagers who went out to explore a small island in their swimming suits. They keep breaking out in really bad folk songs that were written for the movie. The "Fat Spy" is played by Jack E. Leonand. If you don't know who he is, neither do I. He played two characters in the movie. The two characters are supposed to be brothers. One is "Spying" on the teenagers with Jayne Mansfield. Supposedly they are looking for the fountain of youth. The whole movie was filmed in a town in Florida. The town probably paid for the movie to advertise the tourist attractions in their town.
