Quotes

[first lines]
The Boy: I always imagined there'd be a time in my life where everything would line up and the universe would reveal its plan to me. What was once confusing and overwhelming would reassemble into something so clear and so bright, there's no way I wouldn't know what to do. And I guess you could say that's what happened.

A few years too late
7 May 2019 | by Saw-it-on-TubiSee all my reviews

While watching this movie, I wonder if it would have been reviewed better had it come out before (500) Days of Summer. There are several elements both movies have: the nonlinear structure, a forlorn protagonist with job dissatisfaction, the opening narration warning of a doomed relationship. In this movie, I found it harder to track the timeline, as there were few, if any, visual clues that helped distinguish between past and present.

This movie seems to be less of a romance and more of a film of personal growth, but overall, the movie, like its protagonist, just moves without a lot of excitement or passion.
