I saw Halle Berry and Benicio Del Torro in Things We Lost in the Fire a couple of days ago. It was a special advance screening, thanks George.
It’s a seriously heavy emotional drama. I could explain the plot in 90 words, never mind 90 minutes. Having said that, it’s beautifully acted, wonderfully shot, and it feels like a well crafted piece of cinema. But I spent the first half hour bored to tears, and the rest wondering when they were going to get round to actually telling the story.
In summary, if heavy emotional dramas are your thing, you’ll love it. If not, I’d save yourself the 2 hours.
