I recently saw Remember Me starring Robert Pattinson. Whoah. Stop. Stop right there. Now hold on just a second, and try your best not to jump to conclusions. Yes it is the same guy who plays Edward in Twilight. No he doesn't glitter in this movie. And yes, he does an amazing job acting in this film.
My opinions on Robert Pattinson were a bit biased going into this show. I personally do not care for some of the choices he makes in Twilight--whether that is due to script or direction or his own personal choices, I don't know--so I was not sure if I would enjoy this film.
I was pleasantly surprised.
This film is beautiful. There are mixed reviews on it, and as with all reviews the critics seem to want perfection before they'll call it a great movie. It may not be legendary, but I feel it is a great movie. Mostly, I fell in love with the acting. Everything they were doing screamed what my acting teachers are constantly preaching. It was nice to see the tools I am being taught in action. There was a beautiful level of communication between Pattinson and his co-star Emilie de Ravin. There was life and breath in their acting. There was honesty and a sense of fighting for something. Action and objective. Life or death.
My words can't really capture the simplistic beauty of this film. Maybe it isn't the best movie ever. But for what it is, it is the best it could be and I now have high hopes for what Robert Pattinson will achieve.
Ya. I know. I just posted about Robert Pattinson. I'm lame. Sue me.
