Crazy, Stupid, Love

crazy-stupid-love1

Cert: 12A

Running Time: 118 mins

Year Produced: 2011

Director: Glenn Ficarra; John Requa

Cast: Steve Carell, Ryan Gosling, Julianne Moore, Emma Stone, Analeigh Tipton, Jonah Bobo, Marisa Tomei,  Kevin Bacon, John Carroll Lynch

A comedy about the ridiculous things we do for love. Well written and with some really funny performances, it shows that romance can be tough, whatever your age or experience!

The main character is 40-something nerd Cal, who’s devastated when his wife divorces him. Thrust back into the singles scene, Cal’s useless with the ladies, until handsome young player, Jacob, helps out by teaching him his tricks.

But just as Cal starts getting dates again, his 13-year-old son, Robbie, suffers his own crisis: falling for his babysitter who’s only got eyes for, shock horror, his remodelled dad!

Fascinating Facts!

–          Writer Dan Fogelman drew from his own experiences to compose the script, putting together all the advice he’s ever been given about relationships.

–          Actor Ryan Gosling got inspiration for his play boy character by watching a TV programme about a pick-up artist and reading books about foolproof ways to hit on women.

This final film for the week comes with the FILMCLUB thumbs up!

Tomboy

Cert: U

Running Time: 84 mins

Year Produced: 2011

Director Céline Sciamma

Cast: Zoe Heran, Malonn Levana, Jeann Disson

This beautiful story from French filmmaker Céline Sciamma is about 10-year-old Laure, who has moved with her family to a new neighbourhood in Paris during the summer holidays.

With her short-haired, boyish looks and tomboy ways, the local kids mistake her for a boy! But instead of correcting them, she introduces herself as Michael and starts living a double-identity, with her parents unaware of her secret, and her six-year-old sister asked to play along.

The situation becomes more complicated as she grows closer to local girl Lisa, and tension builds around the fact that she can’t lie forever forever.  A touching film that is quite sad but also funny in parts.

Like this? Then also try these great films: Ma Vie En Rose (1997, 12), Bridge To Terabithia (2007, PG), Pocket Money (1972, E), Calamity Jane (1953, U), Mrs Doubtfire (1993, PG)
