Lovely, Still

A Christmas time romance about late-life love starring screen greats Martin Landau (North by Northwest, Ed Wood) and Ellen Burstyn (The Exorcist, The Last Picture Show).

The debut film from writer/director Nicholas Fackler, Lovely, Still features original music by Conor Oberst and a score by Nate Walcott and Mike Mogis of Bright Eyes.

The surprise twist brutally defies the opening narration and plot logic that preceded it, alienating viewers who willingly suspended disbelief.

It's beautifully played and will hit home with anyone who has had to struggle with the most difficult aspects of aging.

There's a push-pull dynamic coursing through the late-in-life romance Lovely, Still that keeps the film intriguing even when it looks like it's going to sink into sentimentality.

The production is over-stuffed with cutesy split screens, jarring dream sequences and a pushy score by Bright Eyes band members Nathaniel Walcott and Mike Mogis that succeed in dragging the proceedings from merely cloying to increasingly annoying.

An interesting watch...

A tough movie to label. Engaging. We found drawn into the characters and their lives. Insecurities and confidence that at times seemed out of step with who they would be in real life. That is until later in the movie when the threads all come together and make sense and open up other layers of understanding. It's not often that a director will connect you...
