Restless Movie Reviews
User reviews on Restless
I did not like this film and I do not recommend seeing it in the theaters. I thought that the film was way too cute in a weird way and I thought that the story was silly and it has been done so many times before. The film tries too hard to be funny and interesting and cute but because it tries so hard it fails hard as well. Basically, the whole movie feels forced and not genuine and that is the worst, it almost makes you uncomfortable while you are watching it. I also thought that Mia Wasikowska looked way too healthy and way too pretty to play a cancer patient. Even though her performance was strong, her character was way too cute and i did not like it.
This is a drama about a terminally ill girl who falls in love with a weird boy, the film is directed by Gus Van Sant and stars Mia Wasikowska, Henry Hopper and Ryo Kase. I really expected something different and better from the great Gus Van Sant, this film was a real disappointment. The actors were good, even though Mia Wasikowska looked too healthy and too happy to play a cancer patient but she tried her hardest and her character was believable in other aspects. the film felt way too cute and full of itself, i was not happy. overall, i do not recommend seeing it in the theaters.
