“So great to have a movie adults can enjoy amidst a summer of cartoon plots u0026amp; characters; a movie you can actually take your family to without being bombarded by violence, sex and f-bombs. I loved it. Clive Owen and Juliette Binoche as artists each struggling with demons that have crippled (in Binocheu0026#39;s case, literally) their creative abilities, deliver wonderful performances, as does the entire cast. The well-paced script rolls along at just the right pace, while giving us moments of pause to feel each characteru0026#39;s pain and root for their ultimate triumph.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eYouu0026#39;d have to be pretty cynical to not like this movie. Could one pick it apart? As with any film, the answer is u0026quot;sure.u0026quot; But why? Just go. Buy your popcorn and enjoy a really good-hearted film. The audience I saw it with (almost all over 40) was cheering at the end.”
