  • ★★★★½ review by tara on Letterboxd

    this may not be an objectively good movie but I've listened to the recording enough times over the last two years (ha) that it's become part of My Being

    5 Stars for Anna Kendrick. Of course she's amazing.

    4 Stars for the Screenplay and Music by Jason Robert Brown (adapting his own play): structurally neat, terrific songs (only a couple I didn't like). Interesting how it squarely takes Her side - when I sorted out what the movie was going to be like (a less messy, musical variation on Two for the Road), I expected more balance. But I kinda like that He just sucks.

    3 Stars for the Direction (by Richard LaGravenese) and Jeremy Jordan: both are pretty bland, with too much circling handheld camerawork ("It's a movie not a play!"). Jordan is in an impossible spot: not only matched up against the greatest actor of his generation, but also playing the guy who breaks her heart.

    It's probably my favorite of a strong group of 2014 musicals.
