Film Review: ‘Above the Shadows’

  • Variety
Film Review: ‘Above the Shadows’
Grief-fueled romantic fantasies can be tricky for filmmakers not named Wim Wenders. Everyone aspires to make “Wings of Desire” with its stirring immediacy, beautiful imagery and pressing poignancy, but most wind up delivering something closer to its decent but dreary American remake, “City of Angels” — which could also be said for writer-director Claudia Myers’ “Above the Shadows.” This magical-realist fairy tale, about a young woman feeling so isolated and insignificant after a tragic loss that she’s literally invisible to everyone except one other struggling soul, is certainly imaginative and intelligent in its ideas. However, the savvy smarts within don’t quite sustain the running time and, much like its protagonist, the film becomes transparent in its motives and sentimentality.

Megan Fox & Olivia Thirlby in Official Trailer for 'Above the Shadows'

"Maybe if I can fix what I broke, things will go back to normal for both of us..." Gravitas has debuted the trailer for an indie drama titled Above the Shadows, formerly known as Shadow Girl. That latter title seems like a better fit as this is a supernatural tale that follows a young woman, played by Olivia Thirlby, who has faded from the world to the point of becoming invisible. After a decade existing in the shadows, Holly meets the one man who can see her - a disgraced Mma fighter. She must restore him to his former glory if she wants to regain a foothold in the world around her. Seems like an odd concept for today's times - a woman must help a man fight his way to glory to regain her visibility? Hmm. Also starring Megan Fox, Justine Cotsonas, Alan Ritchson, Jim Gaffigan, Maria Dizzia, and Tito Ortiz.
