Review: No stranger than love (2015)

Actors: Alison Brie, Justin Chatwin, Colin Hanks,  Dylan Everett

I have been fortunate enough to get a hold of some very good indie films of late and when i saw the oh so adorable Alison Brie as the leading role i couldn’t help myself but to watch it.

Alison’s character Lucy is a local town sweet heart. Everyone likes her from her peers, to her students, neighbors and even women. We all know women are very picky with their friends yeah? Problem is, she is lonely despite every type of guy is hitting on her.

When she picks one out them all to tickle her fancy, a hole opens up and swallows him. Suspending him in the darkness until someone gets him out.
Of course the drama is brought on by the fact that they are in a very local and tiny town. That means news travel fast and well it’s never just your business, its everybody’s business.

Frankly speaking i haven’t a movie so poetic in writing. Despite the humor the script pulls you in with wonderful spoken word pieces done in the name of monologues and narrations. The movie constantly toys with its title asking the questions like what is art? What is love? Perhaps very poetically who are you and who do you want to be?
Poetry is both complex and simple in nature and you will need to pay some attention to the words for you to truly appreciate the writing. It is has light humour and a sense of honestly. Its a light film to lighten your mood.
