Collateral Beauty: 2016
The charm of this story comes after a couple of meaningful words said by Will Smith in the intro. Words followed by silence … and here comes a whole world of silence filled with painful words detailing the tragedy he experienced .. you won’t miss a minute of it.
The idea of personalizing difficult meanings like; Love, Time and Death seems unique yet weird, and was somehow executed randomly and not very well written.
Despite the sadness and grief, you can sense the beauty in continued attempts to approach the three characters who supported Will Smith. It looked more about them than him. It looked more about us as we all may struggle with abandoned love or fight the devilish time or even not dying right.. !
Kate Winslet had a secondary role in that movie where in my opinion could have been done by any other actress, she didn’t really add herself to the role of a woman with a dream that is getting far day by day from coming true.
A movie that literally manipulated me, and for that it will go in the one-time-watch-movies genre of mine. Left me wondering with a couple of hanging hot tears.
