Smart Romantic Comedy Earns an A+
21 April 2011 | by rigogeeSee all my reviews

Losing Control gets high marks from me. It is a smart romantic comedy. Funny, real characters, marvelous actors and music and it is well written and directed. The director knows romance, she has a rare comedic sense and she is funny.

Scientists are often portrayed as cartoon figures. That is not the case here. The story drew me right in. I found myself fully invested in the characters and I completely enjoyed the ride. I will definitely see this film again.

Miranda Kent balances the rigors of graduate school with her need to know about life, to evaluate her love life and the romantic question is Reid Scott "the one". As they say, laughter ensues.

The director has accomplished a small miracle with Losing Control. She got me (!) actually interested in the science aspects of the movie. Having done that this film may well pull many women toward a field not generally considered by them. For this alone the director deserves honors, ribbons and medals.
