1689 - Uncle Kent
This film is about a forty-year old man who always thought that he had missed the boat for a serious relationship and a family, and by the end of the film wonders if maybe he's been wrong about that. And that's being generous with that. These types of film aren't known for hitting you over the head with their storylines and lessons, subtly it putting it vaguely. At the same time I enjoyed large parts of this film, and just felt like it meandered a bit in the other parts. While I very much want to try my hand at a film like this, I just don't think that I could pull back as much, and just watch people doing the most mundane of things. I'll need a little more plot and momentum.
If you like subtle indie flicks, you might dig this - but you're a pure mainstream movie goer chances are that you'll hate a film like this.
