Aesthetic Appeal- 🙂 Richard J. Lewis directed a beautiful movie that can touches your heart. He is able to bring out the comedic elements in a very serious story; all while intertwining many facets of one mans life.

 

Story- 🙂 🙂  We follow Paul Giamatti (Barney) through the three major parts of his life, it just so happens that the three major events were all marriages. It’s a journey through obligation, convince, and love all the while dissecting human relationships between father and son, friend and lover, soul mates, best friends, and many more. But at no point does the story overextend itself; it finds a way to combine almost every genre of film in to one of last years most amazing stories.

 

Acting- 🙂 🙂 the amazing cast gives and equally amazing performane form the three wives Rosamund Pike, Minnie Driver, and Rachelle Lefevre, to Dustin Hoffman as Barneys father in one of the most subtly brilliant comedic roles of his career. All this of course is highlight by maybe the best performance by Paul Giamatti.
