Academy Award® winner Robert Zemeckis—the groundbreaking filmmaker behind Forrest Gump, Flight and Cast Away—directs Steve Carell in the most original movie of the year.  Welcome to Marwen tells the miraculous true story of one broken man’s fight as he discovers how artistic imagination can restore the human spirit.

SYNOPSIS: When a devastating attack shatters Mark Hogancamp (Carell) and wipes away all memories, no one expected recovery.  Putting together pieces from his old and new life, Mark meticulously creates a wondrous town where he can heal and be heroic.  As he builds an astonishing art installation—a testament to the most powerful women he knows—through his fantasy world, he draws strength to triumph in the real one.  

In a bold, wondrous and timely film from this revolutionary pioneer of contemporary cinema, Welcome to Marwen shows that when your only weapon is your imagination…you’ll find courage in the most unexpected place.

The epic drama is produced by Oscar®-winning producer Steve Starkey (Forrest Gump, Flight), Jack Rapke (Cast Away, Flight), and Cherylanne Martin (The Pacific, Flight) of Zemeckis’ Universal-based ImageMovers banner produce alongside the director.  It is executive produced by Jackie Levine, as well as Jeff Malmberg, who directed the riveting 2010 documentary that inspired the film.  welcometomarwen.com

Movie Review by Kristin: SKY | #skymovie #moviereview

Happy Saturday, everyone!

I was finally able to catch SKY on Netflix yesterday and it was pretty interesting. It was definitely an indie/low budget film with very minimal dialogue and kind of left me wanting more. I hate to say that because it wasn’t necessarily due to the performances, but there was a lot missing for me, personally.

Here’s what it was about:

SYNOPSIS: Romy (Diane Kruger) is on holiday in the USA with her French husband, Richard (Gilles Lellouche). But the journey quickly turns into a settling of old scores for this worn out couple. After an ultimate fight, Romy decides to break free. She cuts off her ties to a stable and secure life that has become alienating and escapes to the unknown where she meets Diego (Norman Reedus).

Now, I love Norman Reedus on The Walking Dead, and I’ve seen Diane Kruger in a few projects, but I don’t feel like they were really able to shine in this one. Not because of their respective performances, per say, but because we didn’t even get Norman Reedus until midway through the movie. I also didn’t understand why Lou Diamond Phillips played such a tiny role in this movie. We literally say him for a split second, which was odd. As I mentioned, there was very minimal dialogue, so I don’t feel like we were really on the ride with the characters. The relationship between Romy (aka Rabbit) and Diego was obvious in some parts, but I was curious to know how much time had passed since they’d met. The majority of their “relationship” seems to happen off-screen, which was disappointing.

For the first half of the movie, we see Romy dealing with her abusive husband and then trying to find her own way after finding the courage to leave him. Then she meets Diego in Las Vegas and their whole time together is like, “Hey, I want you around,” and then five minutes later it was like, “Ok, I don’t want a relationship. Go away.” I understand the reason for the push and pull, but I would’ve liked to see more of the sweeter moments between them (i.e. more dialogue).

Aside from that, it wasn’t a bad movie. It was just very slow-moving. If you’re a fan of indie movies and enjoy the slow drama, then you just might be a fan of this one.
