Blue Jay full movie review - The movie everyone strives to make
I love this film. It's perfect. I would not change a thing.
It's the gem I always hope to discover when I go to TIFF, and it's ironic that the large costly studio films seen earlier in the week fell flat? and here's this little two-character indie film shot in just 7 days? and it blows the heavyweights out of the water.
Sarah Paulson is at the top of her game. She should be nominated and win many awards for her portrayal of Amanda. Yes, she is that good.
The direction, acting, cinematography, editing, script, music... all coalesce to create this perfect little gem. It is bliss to watch and experience.
Jim is back in his childhood home sorting through family belongings after this mother's death.
Amanda is back in town to visit with her sister who's expecting a baby.
Jim and Amanda run into each other at the local grocery store and have a difficult and awkward time acknowledging each other's presence. What is making them so uncomfortable? Grab your popcorn and watch their story unfold.
That's it. That's all I'm saying about the film's story line. The less you know, the sweeter the experience of finding out about these two. But I fell in love with both of them.
