Movie Reviews

Very Special Movie for Teens and their Parents
real reader | Los Angeles, CA United States | 12/09/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"It is rare that a movie like "Falling Like This" is made as it is a realistic story about teenage romance and its affect on the whole family. Based on a true story, Katie falls in love with Boyd, a habitual offender who is also so cute and appealing that we all forget what a trouble-maker he is. As Katie is drawn further into Boyd's life, she skips school and fights with her parents and finally goes on an escapade stealing purses. It is a bittersweet time as Katie finally realizes that she has to save herself and move on with her own life.
Filmmaker Dani Minnick has assembled a great cast, including Patricia Clarkson, Elizabeth Ruscio and John Diehl as the parents and each of the actors embody people we cannot forget. Alessandro Zezza's cinematography is artful and the editing slips us in and out of scenes in a mesmerizing way. Not to be missed!"

A Film to love about real kids in a real world
nsbowen | Los Angeles | 12/10/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is the best film in years about how it is when an everyday girl falls in love with a guy who happens to be adorable and also a delinquent on his way to jail. It's not about what happens, it's about living their lives, no phoney stuff, just the way it was. The performances are ... performances? When you're into it, it's happening. Most movies, you know it's a movie and after the bling bling, who cares? This one, you care.I love this film."
Compassionate and Dream-like film
mejanie7 | San Pedro, CA United States | 12/10/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Falling Like This showcases compelling performances by two young actors, Brian Vaughan and Megan Wilson, and well as a typically polished turn by the luminous Patricia Clarkson. Writer/Director Dani Minnick has crafted a compassionate examination of the ragged edge of suburban life as characterized by Boyd, a charming, vulnerable and inveterate juvenile delinquent whose love nearly derails the life of a free-spirited, middle-class teenage girl. The underlying themes of adolescent rebellion, adult responsibility and the seductive power of love are woven elegantly in this dream-like film."
