Shallow characters, poor acting, a 15 minute story stretched out to almost 2 hours. Absolutely painful.
Haven’t been to a movie theater in a long time. I saw the previews and thought it would be a great love movie. Very disappointed that I was fighting to stay awake. We left the movie before it got to the middle. What a waste of money!Should of been a Netflix or Hulu movie.
Although the film sometimes dips into muddled melodrama, those occasional setbacks can’t derail a story filled with warm, resonant characters trying to fathom their own hearts.
The Photograph is a romance-heavy star vehicle for Issa Rae and Lakeith Stanfield that’s deeply flawed but both sexy and thoughtful. Writer-director Stella Meghie’s fourth feature (after The Weekend, Everything Everything, Jean of the Joneses), thick and multi-layered with a lush and precise visual language, invites the audience to look beneath the surface of a standard meet-cute.
Though it’s an intoxicating blend of modern and vintage romance, The Photograph, while flawed, is most intriguing when it peels back the layers between a mother and daughter who never really knew each other in life, but whose stories eventually intertwine in ways they could have never imagined.
