Review:

Nerida:

If you have read the novel by Nick Hornby, you will recognise the same ironic mood in the picture, where making fool of ourselves and of our small/big tragedies seems to be the only way to go on and not down. The comic hilarious side and the more dramatic one blend together without ever clashing and it is impossible not to identify oneself with the contrasting and sometimes simultaneous tendency of the characters to get depressed and to smile at life at the same time. I enjoyed the performance of all the group, especially Toni Colette who is always able to interpret her characters with such authenticity. And if you have not read the book, the movie may offer an occasion also to you to spend some enjoyable time.

Rosie (Lily Collins) and Alex (Sam Claflin) are destined for one another, and everyone seems to know it but them.

Devastated that they will be separated, they make plans for Rosie to join Alex in the US. Everything seems to be falling into place, until the eve of her departure, when Rosie receives some news that would change her life forever…she is pregnant, and to her ex-boyfriend. With hopes of a glamorous career and romantic relationship with Alex slipping away, Rosie decides to remain in Ireland and raise her child alone. With Alex moving on with his life in the US, and Rosie struggling with her new role back in Ireland, it seems all hope is lost, but Alex and Rosie soon find out that fate isn’t done with them yet. Based on Cecelia Ahern’s bestselling novel “Where Rainbows End”, LOVE, ROSIE is a modern comedy-of-errors tale posing the ultimate question: Do we really only get one shot at true love?

SYNOPSIS:
Two-time Academy Award nominee Jeremy Renner (American Hustle, The Hurt Locker, The Bourne Legacy) leads an all-star cast in a political drama based on the remarkable true story of Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Gary Webb. Webb stumbles onto a story which leads to the shady origins of the men who started the crack epidemic on the nation’s streets… and further alleges that the CIA was aware of major dealers who were smuggling cocaine into the U.S., and using the profits to arm rebels fighting in Nicaragua. Despite warnings from drug kingpins and CIA operatives to stop his investigation, Webb keeps digging to uncover a conspiracy with explosive implications. His journey takes him from the prisons of California to the villages of Nicaragua to the highest corridors of power in Washington, D.C. – and draws the kind of attention that threatens not just his career, but his family and his life.

REVIEW:
Nerida:
“National security and crack cocaine in the same sentence. Does that not sound strange to you?” Kill The Messenger dives into an intense and important, often forgotten, segment of history. That being said, as the title implies, the film ultimately centralizes around reporter Gary Webb (Jeremy Renner) and what happens to him when he comes across this shocking discovery. With strong performances by the cast and a clear focus by the director, the film comes out shaky in a few parts but overall provides a riveting and respectful look at this man’s life.Jeremy Renner is the star of this story, and he performs excellently. Renner fully commits into becoming Webb. Besides decently looking like the real Webb physically, he captures a wide range of emotions that the man would have faced – from being a cool reporter to a struggling and scared husband and father. Some characters do not impress as much in their performances, but Renner is able to carry the lead role well enough to support the film.

The cinematography and visuals fit the tone of the film very well. Stylised heavily with its colours and the other external footage it uses, the film gives off an aged and exciting feel, similar to other movies from past decades. What ties it all together though is its clear focus. Director Michael Cuesta has a clear goal of what he wants the film to be about – Gary Webb. While not all the scenes succeed in contributing to that, the majority of it is cohesive enough to let audiences understand the characters without losing the intensity and action of the larger picture – the cocaine smuggling.

With its commendable technical aspects and the important subject it deals with, Kill The Messenger is definitely a film worth seeing. Jeremy Renner and the director together bring a lot to the film, and while it’s not entirely superb, it gives a good two hours of entertainment that means something, especially today
