May I ask a question first, before I begin my review? Is there any film in which Lauren Dern couldn't change the way she acted to make herself one of the most revered actress of the ninety's, or ever?
Chris Cooper and Upcoming star Jake Gyllenhaal starred in this 1998 Biograhy about NASA Engineer Homor Hickham.
Homor Hickham doesn't want to mine coal, and can't play football. He then sees Sputnik streak across the sky. Evryone laughs at his dream. Everyone except Miss riley, his teacher.
With the help of his secretly dying teacher Miss Riley, She dared them to dream, and leave their coal mining town in search of a better life, not on the gridiron, or in the mines of coalwood, and for Homor, Maybe Cape Canaveral.
This film is emotional and doesn't ask for sadness, or regret, but commands for hopes and dreams, and that everlasting quest to find and reach yours.
This movie had Deep Values.
"Angelina Jolie" Gives her most commanding performance ever.
"A Mighty Heart" is a Tradgic retelling of the Death of Reporter "Daniel Pearl", Based on the book by His wife "Mariane Pearl".
Jolie puts on the performance of a life time in this shocking picture, by "MIchael Winterbottom,(Road to Guantonnamo Bay)!
Jolie avoids all the critical negative of the past, by recreating her role, and turning it into whole another dimension of acting.
Jolie is faced with alot of scenes, full of touching, heart breaking drama, and emotions that she replicates, and turns into another state of conciousness, and higher emotions.
This film was a Pheonomanel. I watched it and I didn't take my eyes off the screen once. This is a shocking , sometimes Tear-Jerking feeling drama, that is amazing, and thought stirring.
I give it Four out Four Stars".I Might have to say this is a perfect film!
Highly and Strongly Reccomended. Watch it as soon as you again, It's Good!
