Good chick-flick for guys... who love cinema, that is!
I had no idea what to expect when I sat down to view "Ask Me Anything".
It occurred to me that this would probably turn out to be a fluffy, sensitive chick-flick and that I might walk out after a little while. My male ego often feels unable follow the psychological estrogen trail for too long... At the movies, anyway.
I mention this for all the male readers because I was truly blown away by this little movie.
It deserves to have little or none of its content revealed. I will mention the package: nicely written, surprisingly engaging, considering how modest and devoid of ambition some of the dialogs can deceivingly appear at the start. The picture is deeply candid and offers genuinely potent insights into cinematic gender language. It is fresh! It took me by surprise and wrapped me around its little finger in no time. Walking out? Out of the question!
The style of the picture is discreet - it allows some very subtle performances to come across.
Britt Robertson, the lead, deserves accolades. She is a superb actress
deeply vulnerable. What's more, she has a unique quality for an
actress: she makes her protagonist fascinating long before we've even begun to get acquainted with her crisis.
The film left me speechless. In a good way.
