Movie Reviews

An excellent film with a lot of depth
David W. Straight | knoxville, tennessee United States | 06/20/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is a film that should have received a great deal more
attention. It's shot mostly on location on Martha's Vineyard,
and beautifully filmed. It's about relationships and the
interaction between people--Beau Bridges as the husband, who
can usually commute down from Boston on weekends, Helen Mirren
as the psychologiccaly troubled wife with two young children,
and Kyra Sedgwick as the au pair/mother's helper Bridges hires to
cook and look after the kids, since Mirren cannot do so.

Sedgwick also has some deep-rooted psychological problems, and
it is fascinating to watch Mirren emerge from her own problems
to help Sedgwick. It's not an easy movie to watch--no murders
or car chases to provide a counterpoint. The cast is stellar
and the story is compelling, and by the end of the film you
feel somewhat drained emotionally. A fine film!"

"Losing Chase is a movie about coming alive and the sharing of coming alive. The Helen Mirren character is in deep depression and her husband takes her and their children to their island home, Martha's Vineyard, for the summer. He commutes from his job on weekends so he hires a caretaker, Kyra Sedgwick, to look after her and the children. Sedgwick has her own issues and Mirren begins to recover as she changes positions with her. It is beautifully fllmed and wonderfully acted."
For Mirren Fans
Kathleen Mccarthy | NYC | 08/11/2006
(3 out of 5 stars)

"Yes, I agree with the review above----this is tough to watch-----Mirren is always so believable (a true actor who is "one" with the role, and the only other one I can think of off the cuff is Meryl Streep)and her abusiveness to the young mother's helper is so uncomfortable to view. Good pacing, and Beau is also quite good as the husband who loves his wife but is clueless.
Now, I know that this is fantasy of "the movies," but Helen sure gets the younger lovers, doesn't she ? As Ayn Rand, Karen Stone, the new Shadowboxer flick----how fabulous that at 61 she is still considered sexy enough. I hope I am !"
Wonderful movie
Tanya Sonoqui | Tucson Az | 04/10/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I agree with most that in the beginning it is a difficult movie to watch. Especially for a Helen Mirren fan. Chase Phillips' behavior is something to be desired but it certainly adds to the film. It's a beautiful work of art and I'm very happy to own it! Helen Mirren is, as always, a genius. And Kyra Sedgwick and Beau Bridges are wonderful as well. I highly Recommend it!"
