  • A story of love in New Orleans. Oct 22, 2009
    by Sivvie

    This is a gem of a movie. Hidden under the detritus of a seedy New Orleans house is a film of great sensitivity and message. Scarlet Johansson is stunning as the solemn Pursy, forced by circumstances, into sharing her dead Mother's house with two alcoholics, a white-haired John Travolta and a charismatic younger man played by Gabriel Macht. The film unfolds almost like one of those exotic flowers that grow in that part of the world. It takes it's time to tell the story, not
    giving us information until we are ready and hungry for it. It's a film of slow growth of different loves: young love, fond love, and finally deep and committed love. The characters are often unpleasant (you can almost smell the alcohol) and certainly dirty and off-putting to the almost virginal Pursy. John Travolta displays a flair for playing such a larger-than-life ex-professor. He fills the screen literally and emotionally, and Gabriel Macht (of the beautiful eyes) charms as the lost and unhappy Lawson Pines. It's one of those films that stay with the viewer long after the film has finished

    This is one of the best movies I have watched in 3 years.
    Wonderfully acted and John Travolta was awesome in it.
    All of the supporting actors were wonderful.
    I am glad I own this DVD.
