Harry Stevenson: God is either dead or he despises us.
Bradley Smith: You don't really believe that.
Bradley Smith: God doesn't hate us, Harry. If he did, he wouldn't have made our hearts so brave.
Maybe it was just the mood I was in (a month after my 51st birthday) or the time (Christmas Day) that influenced me as I sat on my sofa and watched this deeply touching film. Christmas is like one of those old-fashioned spin tops: you pull the top and it makes the thing whirl out of control, briefly, beautifully, and then it slows down and just stops. Once the packages are open and the dinner is eaten, you're sitting there surrounded by pieces of wrapping paper and a pile of dishes in the sink and life just goes back to the maddening rush, like the top while it whirled.
Watching this movie in a quiet house made me sit and think. Looking back, it came at a perfect time: it unfolded, like a beautiful flower, as it buds and then blooms. You have to take your time over it; luxuriate over the beautiful dialogue, and the bravura acting. Morgan Freeman and Jane Alexander, folks I would gladly pay money to see them stand in front of an audience and read the phone book. Newcomers Alexa Davalos and Toby Hemingway, who reminded us of the beauty of young love, a story as old as Romeo and Juliet; Radha Mitchell in a prime Ice Queen Melting role and Greg Kinnear, who has demonstrated more range than I thought possible.
This one was marketed completely WRONG. It is NOT your basic RomCom and if anything, actually anti-RomCom. No goofiness, no silliness. No Jennifer's in sight (Aniston or Lopez or Garner). Just a thoughtful rumination on love -- being in love, to love and to be loved back. A joy.
