Film Review: The Valet
Great film, feel good, well cast and acted. Heartwarming story. 8.5/10.0
Ryan Reynolds and a great supporting cast (Jennifer Garner, Zoe Saladana, Mark Ruffalo, Catherine Keener and Braxton Bjerken) deliver a funny, heartwarming story with many home truths and points of reflection that I think we can all learn from. I loved it. 8.0/10.0
This is a weird hybrid of a “modern” love film and a Mexican telenovella. Made in Mexico, it features Sam Clafin as the uptight Englsh author, and Verónica Echegui as his Mexican translator and co-author. Clafin’s character, Henry, is generally unlikeable, and exploits Maria in a self absorbed, narcissistic way throughout the film. Maria is too good for him, too...
