Wachgeküßt: Directed by Richard LaGravenese. With Holly Hunter, Danny DeVito, Queen Latifah, Martin Donovan. Judith Nelson quit her medical studies to marry. Years later, her husband, a physician, divorces her to be with another doctor. Deeply frustrated, she now lives alone in her luxury apartment in New York, looking for a new meaning for her life. Pat Francato, the janitor and lift-boy, has a troubled life himself: Gambling debts and the tragic death of his daughter took away all his spirit. One day, he and Judith meet in the right mood and a fragile friendship starts to grow. They can help each other to get on their feet again. But one false move could destroy everything they built so carefully.
“Let me be frank. Iu0026#39;m an action movie guy. I like it when stuff blows up, and nothing blows up in u0026quot;Living Out Loudu0026quot;. And Iu0026#39;m not normally into dramas — too boring and arty (u0026quot;The Pianou0026quot;). But I found u0026quot;Living Out Loudu0026quot; to be a fascinating character sketch with a real plot and something to say.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eWhile u0026quot;Living Out Loudu0026quot; has not exactly changed my life (see u0026quot;Dead Poets Societyu0026quot; or u0026quot;Contactu0026quot;), the film has something real to say about life and the acting is primo! I now forgive Holly Hunter for her role in u0026quot;The Pianou0026quot;, where she played a zero-emoting piece of wood who gets symbolically raped but falls in love with the guy anyhow. Ahem. Excuse me.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eAnd Iu0026#39;m forming a deep respect for Danny DeVito.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eWho should see this film:u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003e– People like me who hate dramas, this one is safe and quiteu003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eintelligentu003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003e– drama buffs and film school types, go crazyu003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003e– romance movie types, there is plenty in this filmu003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eIu0026#39;ll give u0026quot;Living out Loudu0026quot; a surprisingly good 9 out of 10.”
