The Mountain Between Us. Film Review.

Liverpool Sound and Vision Rating * * * *

Cast: Idris Elba, Kate Winslet, Dermot Mulroney, Beau Bridges, Linda Sorensen, Vincent Gale, Marci T. House.

The Mountain Between Us is such that at times what we perceive is heroic and noble in ourselves can be considered as weak and ineffective by others. Our stance in the wake of calamity is not defined by what we were but who we are shown to be when the ordeal is over. It is a reminder that what stands between the mountains is not space or the yawning chasm but the chance to grow beyond what is real at the time.

The story of the corrupt cop is always one that can enthral an audience, to see someone who is supposed to uphold the law cross the thin blue line to the other side, normally for money, is one that is as old as Hollywood and as poignant as modern day society. It is also a tale which has been assuredly been done every way possible, that in many respects it is no longer shocking because we live in a world where moral boundaries have become blurred and downright insensible; we have become immune to it because we understand it goes on all the time, the chronic Sleepless feeling we have is the only defence to the constant news about it.

August: Osage County, a beautiful, flat and hot place to visit but you wouldn’t want to be related a particular family that resides there.

When renowned published poet Beverly Weston decides to take his own life, the can of spiteful and mean-spirited worms come flooding out everywhere and into the lives of the family members left behind, chiefly in the viscous tongue of drug addicted cancer patient of his wife Violet Weston. Nobody is immune, and like a disease floating free in the air, multiplies and takes root in the actions of some of those around her until words are said that become too much to bear.
