Little Women (2019)

At least three major filmed versions of Louisa May Alcott's 1868 novel Little Women already exist; the 1933 George Cukor version and the 1994 Gillian Armstrong version are both excellent (I haven't yet seen the 1949 version with Elizabeth Taylor and Janet Leigh). But given the episodic nature of the novel, movie adaptations based on Alcott are lower-key, and overall less stuffy than most literary movies, and it's always a pleasure to see a new attempt. Writer and director Greta Gerwig (Lady Bird) adds a new version that's gentle, compulsively watchable, and satisfying. She makes a cursory attempt to justify her version in sequences where aspiring author Jo March (Saoirse Ronan) meets with an editor (Tracy Letts), who tells her the "rules" to which women's fiction must adhere; Gerwig breaks those rules, of course, partly by telling the story out of order. Little Women (2019) may not supplant the previous versions, but it's good enough to stand alongside them. Emma Watson co-stars as Jo's eldest sister Meg, Eliza Scanlen plays musician Beth, and Florence Pugh plays artist Amy. The heavy-lidded Timothée Chalamet plays Laurie, Laura Dern is warm and wise as Marmee, and Bob Odenkirk is the largely absent Mr. March. read more...

Stuck in Love (2013)

Many movies about writers wind up taking a passive approach as the writer character sits back, observes, and records life as it happens around him or her. Writer/director Josh Boone has solved this dilemma with this complex, emotional portrait of family of writers. Stuck on You isn't really about the act of writing itself, but the struggle with how much a writer needs to open up his or her heart to the world. The characters show varying degrees of this struggle, as well as the pain that can be associated with all of them. read more...

An Affair to Remember (1957)

McCarey had already used the plot in his 1939 film Love Affair: Grant and Deborah Kerr, both of whom are already romantically engaged, meet and fall in love on a cruise ship. They agree to rendezvous at the top of the Empire State Building in six months, but Kerr gets into an accident, missing the meeting and losing the use of her legs. read more...

Street Angel (1928)

Frank Borzage's Street Angel was one of three films that earned Janet Gaynor a Best Actress Oscar. I was lucky enough to see it at a film festival screening with a gorgeous, glorious live score by American Music Club. It was one of the great nights of my life. Gaynor stars as Angela, a poor waif who steals medicine for her sick mother and hides out from the law by joining a traveling carnival. A painter (Charles Farrell) becomes smitten by her and does her portrait as the Madonna. But the lovers are separated when Angela is arrested. Borzage directs this soapy stuff with a heavy layer of gauze, but his heart is definitely in the material and it's ultimately potent and moving. read more...

Breathe (2017)

Andrew Garfield plays the heroic, real-life Robin Cavendish (1930-1994), who was stricken with polio and lived most of his life paralyzed from the neck down. Unwilling to settle for the horrible conditions of polio sufferers, staring at the same four walls their entire lives, he was influential in inventing a wheelchair that contained a battery-powered breathing apparatus, and in helping to "free" many other disabled patients. It's a great story, but the fictional biopic Breathe is the most typical kind of slick Oscar bait. read more...
