Soon after relocating from Texas to New York in a bid to make the big time, a 21-year-old actor enters into a turbulent relationship with a struggling singer/songwriter in writer/director Ethan Hawke's screen adaptation of his own debut novel. William (Mark Webber) is an aspiring actor with dreams of making it big. Upon arriving in New York City, William soon enters into a tenuous romance with Sarah (Catalina Sandino Moreno), a talented musician with a winning voice and keen songwriting skills. Love is a fickle thing, though, and in the thriving world of young and talented artists, it isn't always enough to make a relationship last. ~ Jason Buchanan, All Movie Guide
I completely related to this film. I am not so sure I am giving the film 4.5 stars as I am the story. I know a lot of people gave this film a bad review, but if you have ever had your heart destroyed and refused to accept reality then you too might relate. It's like listening to break up song after a big fight. They just sound like they were written for you.
This movie had SOME potential, but for the most part is a bomb and a waste of time. The girl is a singer and the boyfriend is unemployed / actor/drifter. From here its all about their love for each other. And the movies shows them having lots of sex.But Big deal, that alone, doesnt make a great movie. Even with that being said, HER personality is as dull as butter knife.Eventually, she breaks up with him,and leaves him to follow her singing career. End of movie. FANTASTIC huh?..NO..PASS on this stinker of a movie, unless you just want to see sensless nudity.ONE star is really generous.
