Review: I am a huge movie buff and I was not aware that this was based on a best selling book in 2005 but I thought this movie was well written and acted. I plan on reading the book. Although each actor did an amazing job, I do think John Kranski was the shining light in this movie. I also was moved by the performance of Colin Egglesfield. There is one scene outside of a bar where you can see his torment, he does not say any words but his emotions are written all over his face and it was amazing. I could personally relate to being a relationship or making a decision out of fear and not taking the risk at achieving true happiness. I think that is the real message or reality behind this movie not whether or not Rachel or Darcy were right or wrong, good or bad.
This movie reminded me that we all have choices in life about what makes us happy and we can only blame ourselves if we deny our true desires because we feel we are not deserving or if we are aggressive and abusing others in order to achieve it. I thought this movie was very thought provoking about what motivates you or makes you happy and if you are living your life for others or yourself. It brought a lot of emotions out of me including anger, anticipation, and sadness. I think we have all been Darcy or Rachel at some point in our lives and that is relatable. I recommend this movie.
