Nobody Ever Wants Me…
The cast is phenomenal and so is this movie. The story plays around the 50s. A young rebellious DiCaprio, De Niro who plays a strict father and husband and Ellen Barkin, who plays the mother of Toby and always seems to pick the wrong guys.
In 1957, a son and mother flee the East and an abusive boyfriend to find a new life, and end up in Seattle, where the mother meets a polite garage mechanic. The boy continually gets into trouble by hanging out with the wrong crowd. The mom marries the mechanic, but they soon find out that he’s an abusive and unreasoning alcoholic, and they struggle to maintain hope in an impossible situation as the boy grows up with plans to escape the small town by any means possible. Based on a true story by Tobias Wolff.
I cant believe how old this movie is. Time just passed by, but this movie still remains, its good, original, funny and has a sweet story. Young Tobey Maguire and Reese Witherspoon are great!
Two 1990’s teenagers find themselves in a 1950’s sitcom where their influence begins to profoundly change that complacent world.
A brother and sister from the 1990s are sucked into their television set and suddenly find themselves trapped in a 1950s style television show. Here they have loving parents, old fashioned values, and an overwhelming amount of innocence and naivety. Not sure how to get home, they integrate themselves into this “backwards” society and slowly bring some color to this black and white world. But as innocence fades, the two teens begin to wonder if their 90s outlook is really to be preferred.
Brothers, starring Jake Gyllenhaal, Natalie Portman and Tobey Maguire, is an interesting and profound drama about family values, war, and relationships. The acting is fantastic.
Before leaving on his second tour in Afghanistan, Marine Captain Sam Cahill, a leader, an athlete, a good husband and father, welcomes his screw-up brother Tommy home from prison. He’d robbed a bank. In country, Sam’s helicopter is shot down and all are presumed dead. Back home, while Sam wastes away as a prisoner in a remote encampment, Tommy tries to take care of the widow and her two children. While imprisoned, Sam experiences horrors unbearable, so when he’s rescued and returns home, he’s silent, detached, without affect, and he’s convinced his wife and brother have slept together. Demons of war possess him; what will silence them?
Funny and weird! I wish Johnny would do more of those movies, I liked him so much in the 90s! And Benicio Del Toros accent…wonderful movie.
