*Originally Posted on Next Projection*
Katherine Emmer’s Life in Color has a crucial ingredient that many films are lacking: believable people. Too often do filmmakers get caught up in trying to tell a story that they fail in focusing on the characters inhabiting the world they’ve created. Writing and starring in her directorial debut, Emmer has crafted a story with characters that immediately feel real and not some pawn in a story. The story is familiar to anyone who has seen at least three movies; two people thrust into each other’s lives only to end up appreciating each other and overcoming their own obstacles. However, this movie stands above others of its kind because of fantastic performances by Emmer and her costar Josh McDermitt. The two share a seemingly effortless chemistry that keeps one invested despite its familiar plot. More an acting showcase than anything else, Life in Color is nonetheless a worthy directorial debut.
★★★½ review by Corey Bussey on Letterboxd
This movie was on my radar for some time but the price was never right on iTunes. It went on sale and I finally decided to give it a shot. I am glad it was about what I expected though not entirely. The characters are believable and the movie has some nice indie comedy moments but I do think the writing could have been more punchier. That being said it has nice relatable characters with lost of charm and heart. If you are a fan of indie dramatic comedies it’s worth a rental.
