Recently watched the movie”Restless”.
Now, normally I hate romance films, partially because of how sappy they tend to be, partially because they tend to be a bore, partially because it’s always the same gosh darn story. But for some reason, I don’t find this movie bad, but instead I actually really, really like it. The characters actually feel real, something romances tend to not do.The plot isn’t all Nicholas Sparks where it’s LOVELOVELOVECANCERSADSADSAD.
It’s a story about a boy who’s parents died in a car accident and meets a girl dying from brain cancer. Sounds Nicolas Sparks-ish, right? Well, it isn’t. Unlike a Nicholas Sparks movie, cancer isn’t the center of the movie’s drama(there isn’t much drama in the movie to begin with). The story is a surprisingly happy one, and it has left me with a smile. If you like romances, give it a shot. If you’re like me and do not, give it a shot. This is less of a romance and more of a love story.
Characters that seem like real people,a realistic take on tragedy, and an overall great film, even though it is a romance film.
