"A Pulitzer-winning writer grapples with being a widower and father after a mental breakdown, while, 27 years later, his grown daughter struggles to forge connections of her own."I literally have no words for this movie and I should be writing like 10 lines, right . This kind of love, father's love and the power of Katie's pain when she's standing next to that jukebox...That can't be described. I cried my eyes out, because I will never be ready when that moment comes, in real life. The song in the end was just an outstanding finishing. Summary: Haven't seen <more>
After the The Pursuit of Happiness and 7 Pounds, Gabriele is confirming his huge smartness as director. He has a great potential. His mind is built with a special architecture, the right mix of brain, heart and id. He has to improve himself, he has to risk more because he has all the qualities to become one of the best Italian directors of the last 50 years. Of every movie he did, he always gave me that weird sensation of "his first time as a director". For me he's a genius. I give him 10 to his intelligence, and 7 to his last work, Fathers & Daughters. I spent a lot of <more>
years in Hollywood and what i think is that he deserves to work with the best production companies. I am curious to know what he's able to do with a 100kk dollar of budget. I like him, he is 1000 times better than Sorrentino. He's unique.
Where do I start. This movie got me tearing and still tearing when I'm done and out of the cinema. I read previous reviews especially those who didn't like the movie gave one or three stars out of 10 and I think the reviewers' problem is that they didn't get the character played by Amanda Seyfried. It's not that Katie Davis hated guys, it's because she was very heartbroken by the death of her father, she shut her heart and end up so used to not feeling anything i.e. "void", as she called it and got into the habit of occasional sex in attempt to feel <more>
something.There are some minor problems with the movie such as unexplained physical illness of Jake Davis, and such-an-angelic Katie Davis' childhood character that at times seems too good to be true. Other than that it's a beautiful script played by extraordinarily convincing actor and actresses.
My wife picked this one - and, as usual, it was great. Well written - good dialogue - excellent acting, Russell Crowe has recovered from Noah and played the role of the damaged, but loving father in a convincing fashion. Amanda Seyfried shows the depths of her acting skills as his very flawed but sympathetic daughter. And our old buddy from Breaking Bad, Aaron Paul, proves he can thrive without Heisenberg.The plot and writing are terrific. With out giving away too much, it is a heart-wrenching story with a number of themes: the ups and downs of an author's life; how money usually gets it <more>
way unless the money monger has moral issues - which they usually do ; how separation and lost love can have a life-long impact.And yes, as others have mentioned, it is a tear-jerker. You want so much for the ending to be hopeful and . . . . well you'll just have to see it.I highly recommend this film - it has a few twists and turns as it flashes back and forth from 1989 to the present - with the key issue being - why is she so screwed up? With so much garbage being produced every month it is refreshing to see a taut drama bring together all the elements to deliver a great film experience. I hope you watch it.
After the car accident novelist Jake Davis Russell Crowe has to raise his daughter Katie Kylie Rogers alone. Later he has a mental breakdown and leaves Katie with relatives while he goes away to get better. When he returns, the relatives want to adopt Katie and, of course, he refuses. Later adult Katie Amanda Seyfried struggles with being alone and sleeps around and is afraid to find love. Enter Cameron Aaron Paul .The movie is basically Jake's struggles with his seizures, raising Katie and not doing so good making money writing novels. To add insult to injury the relatives will sue <more>
Jake to give Katie a better life. There is a lot going on and we keep hoping Jake can pull this off. You will see almost 2-stories: present day with adult Katie and flashbacks with young Katie. You are going to need Kleenex boxes right at the beginning for this one. This is a very good movie, a comfortable movie, an uncomfortable movie, a happy movie and a sad movie.This movie will be nominated for Best Picture and Kylie Rogers should be nominated for Best Supporting Actress. Russell Crowe and Amanda Seyfried along with Aaron Paul did very good, but this movie would not have the impact it has if it weren't for the performance of Klyie Rogers as young Katie. Okay, let's be fair: she steals the show and rightly so. Her scenes with Russell Crowe are pure gold and you will not want those scenes to end. And how someone this young does what she does is unheard of. She will tug at your heartstrings. Keep those Kleenex boxes close. To watch her, you believe she believes everything that happens is real. Kudos. The music throughout was very good. Notables: Bruce Greenwood as William, Katie's uncle; Diane Kruger as Elizabeth, Katie's aunt; Jane Fonda as Teddy Stanton, Jake's publisher; and Octavia Spencer as Dr. Corman, Katie's boss.There is no doubt in my mind this one will stay with you for quite a while. And you too, no doubt 9/10 Violence: Not really, well the car accident. Sex: Yes. Nudity: No. Language: Yes, briefly in the beginning.
Maybe you gotta be a girl's father... (by plsergiocs)
... to understand this movie and be so touched by it as I was. I can't quite grasp why the critics gave it such a run-down! You could improve it here and there - as in anything in life - but the superb acting, especially Russell Crowe's, and the great plot, makes it very easy to understand what it feels like to be a daughter's loving father after undergoing a major disaster and being on the verge of going through another one - both diametrically distinct but very much moving. Call this movie melodramatic if you may, but I definitely recommend it. More so if you're a girl's <more>
Fathers And Daughters: A movie that would have made me book the first flight home without waiting for holidays if I still lived overseas. I mean it. Yes, I'm a "daddy's girl", and I've been lucky enough to enjoy this beautiful movie with my father well, my mum and brother were there too, but dad was a 'must' from what I'd heard about the film . As one can easily guess after seeing the trailer, it's a touching piece, and the cast does a great job in reflecting the story on screen. Gabriele Muccino delivers the plot with a non-cliché flow, he's very <more>
successful with the flashbacks, and one of the strongest aspects of F & D is the amazingly beautiful music, in my opinion. Particularly the Carpenter's cover by Michael Bolton, Close To You adds so much, not to mention that it squeezes your heart during a particular scene. Speaking of heart-squeezing, I think Russell Crowe has made a habit of making his audience cry, especially with The Water Diviner and now, with Fathers and Daughters. As expected, he does not just act, he 'becomes' Jake Davis, and forms multiple lumps in your throat with the character he portrays. As one of the best actors of our time, if not the very best, he's simply amazing. Also, the chemistry between R. Crowe and Kylie Anne Rogers is great, it's heart-warming and so 'real', if I may say so. Kylie Anne is the sweetest potato chip, that goes without saying, and I need to add that at some point I did hate Bruce Greenwood and Diane Kruger.. well, not them, but the characters they played, of course. Needless to say, Jane Fonda was one of the shining stars of F & D, and I think Amanda Seyfried and Aaron Paul were well-chosen for their respective roles, *thumbs up* to them both. Taken together, I loved the story, it was beautifully transformed into a tear-jerker on screen, and I sincerely hope this movie gets released in every country -because it's a sweet piece of art which reminds you of the most important and valuable things in life. PS: Keep tissues nearby when you're seeing F & D. Am not kidding.
I enjoyed this drama. There is nothing very new about the story and it is predictable but in good way and you just want to see this stellar cast act it out. 25 years ago a father and daughter cope after the mother is killed in a car accident. The mother's sister played by a beautiful and very classy looking Diane Kruger and her slimy husband played by Bruce Greenwood remember the nasty guy in Double Jeopardy? In present day the daughter grown up as a social worker has commitment and promiscuity issues. There is story isn't very ground breaking but with such a starry cast and an <more>
actual story with actual drama tragedy romance love infidelity forgiveness it makes a compelling watch. Some people may find things old fashioned and soapy - but I think that is unfair. There is nothing wrong with having a proper resolved complete story for a change. Russell Crowe is a bit old to be father to the young girl but he acts well - his seizures are convincing. Amanda looks prettier and more alluring and less bug eyed than usual. She makes a potentially unlikeable character sympathetic. It's great to see Aaron Paul him in a romantic role as her love interest. There was an indication in 'Breaking Bad' of how affecting his passion would be in a role like this. Jane Fonda is well cast as a publisher. Overall the cast is great and elevates this beyond a Nicholas Sparks level. Tip: The story is old over 2 time periods about 25 years apart and going back and forth between them. Flashbacks: Don't get confused - the flashbacks are when Russel Crowe appears.
Emotionally powerful & gripping. Crowe and Seyfired give the best performances of their career. I highly recommend it. (by cosmo_tiger)
"That's what this book is really about, it's about me." Jake Davis Crowe is a famous author who as just lost his wife and now he is in a fight to keep his daughter Katie Seyfried . While trying to write a book that hill become a best seller he is trying to pay off lawyers in order to keep his wife's sister from taking his girl. Katie, all grown up now, is struggling to maintain a normal relationship. One of the books her father wrote as an impact on both their lives. This is a fantastic movie, and also one of the most emotional films I have seen in a long time. It may <more>
be because I am a father myself but I really got emotionally invested in this and found myself holding back tears over and over. Crowe does a perfect job of trying to balance being a father with trying to do everything he can to save his girl. Seyfried gives maybe the best performance she has ever given and is very believable as someone who has lost her way and doesn't know how to be happy and "normal". This is a movie I could go on and on about but I will just say watch this and you will feel the same way I did. Overall, emotionally powerful and gripping. Crowe and Seyfired give the best performances of their career. I highly recommend this, but be ready to cry. I give this an A-.
