Christopher H (au) wrote: For an independent drama with only four characters set in the woods, the film flows nicely, allowing enough character development and spot on performances to allow for thorough engagement. Slattery defines a separated father, both tiptoeing around his son whom he hardly sees and taking out his aggravations, misplaced or not. His connection to the material is undeniable, bringing to life certain lines like "why can't you be happy for me" and a scene involving marijuana and Jena Malone. The only actor who lets his performance slide is Gilford, whose blank stares and quiet deliveries make for an uneven and almost stale exhibition. However, the ladies cover this up as best they can, with a more involved approach, stealing the show several times. Calm and quaint like the characters' surroundings, "In Our Nature" is a strong emotional drama exploring the differences and similarities between blossoming relationships in the era of divorce that we live in. There's no need for melodrama or heightened realities, no extremes or unexpected twists, just life, begging the question how much this relates to the director's life. Pleasant and never boring, Savelson sets the bar high for a follow-up.

A very world-weary Harrison Ford leads a talented ensemble cast exploring the experiences of undocumented immigrants in the USA and the immigration officers who deal with them. The focus here is not on the immigrants' flying under the radar (as with so many movies of this genre) but on their achieving naturalization, and what the various characters go through in pursuit of that goal is by turns tragic, brutal, provocative, and funny. One or two of the immigrant stories are clichd, but each character is complex and fully developed. Also, immigrants from all over the world AND the immigration officers get equal screen time, and I found that both interesting and refreshing. The performances are all excellent and the writing and plotting are skillful and powerful, so I found a lot to like and not much to dislike. Four stars.

But by the end of it, he has managed to put together a relatively comprehensive and balanced account of post-911 antisemitism despite the personal nature of the film. Well worth your time.

Sandy the young naive girl, can't help resolve her confusion & yearning, that she chooses to see what the "other-side" is about. While her heart, soul, and mind tell her yes, something else tells her no. We come to know what Greasers are all about, and we can't help but fall for T-Birds, they get us off our feets. What happens after graduation? we live open to ourselves to decide of these two knuckle heads. Having the time of our lives, the greatest moments in our life, we don't want it to end, we decide whether sticking together for longer is worth it, but until then we enjoy in the NOW. What we do for love in a car, group, relationship, we go the extra mile, we go the distance as much as it can go, we fix and mend until we realize that we need to get a new one, or we don't try to over do it, and keep it mint condition and vintage, like our youth, and the times of our life.
