Perks of being a musical dreamer
27 January 2019 | by bmelyacySee all my reviews

Dreamland is a heavy hitter in both its honest and intimate portrayal of lost romantic opportunity and the lessons learned in this quirky and serious coming of age film.

At first glance this film may come off like an adult romance cliche but don't let that fool you. This is a fresh work and a brilliant first feature by Robert Schwartzman. The film has a way of grabbing your attention with each stage of the film. Monty's dream of becoming a jazz bar owner and the realization that love may not always come in neatly decorated packages.

Johnny Simmons and Amy Landecker create a fresh look at an overlooked cliche and instead deliver an honest view of love lost that is both charmingly playful and heartbreakingly dreamy.

Lastly, the music composition of the film was pieced together incredibly well. Jumping like a heartbeat, between awkward adolescence and the uncertainty of love to its more mature and intimate moments reminiscent of The Graduate (as another reviewer has commented on).
