A rushed masterpiece which leaves the viewer underwhelmed
The basis of the film is off of two protagonist a writer and an actor, female and male respectively. However to call the actor a protagonist may be an exaggeration as the narrative is driven heavily forward by the female/writer leaving the actor to some what like just a supportive medium. The begining is slow and the narrative is lackful yet purposefully or accidentally the viewer is still engaged with the melodramatics of the newly wed couple. The acting is not a masterclass but is complimentary to the film itself and provides an almost intermediate vibe about the film.The narrative and development is somewhat underwhelming with many key focus points simply being brushed over with lack of attention, scenes which seemed focused on do little to leave an impact as the next scene rushes in. Overall the film is nothing spectacular and could be described as nothing more than underwhelming, however the potential for it to be an innovation in the romance/drama genre is ever present. A greater focus on key scenes and further character development of everybody apart from the female lead would of likely benefited this film paramount.
