The Hollars movie full length review - Simply breathtaking, yet absolutely under appreciated.

This movie, while not overwhelmingly original, certainly blew me away with its heart and beauty. Without spoiling it for anyone out there wishing to see this Krasinski piece of art, I just want to say I was pleasantly surprised with the entire movie.

While having a few rough camera moments and jumpy spots on occasion, The Hollars never let me down with any scene from beginning to end. This movie took me into a dramatic reality full of painful truths and misguided lives, while also pointing out the importance of familial connections and not letting anxieties take away from the good in life.

Truthfully, though, the roles of Margo Martindale, John Krasinski, and Anna Kendrick, made this movie stand out amongst similar indies. Martindale deserves an Award for her unbelievable performance, which ironically was extremely believable. She held this movie together like Gorilla Glue with one of the strongest, yet mostly understated, acting performances I've ever had the privilege of seeing before. She was mesmerizing and certainly should be recognized for her powerful scenes. Krasinski, in both his acting and his directing jobs, really pulled a win out of his hat on this movie. While being an enjoyable lead, he also didn't steal any of the spotlight away from those who also deserved it. His choices for musical interludes, his camera placement, and his excellent tear jerking moments, all speak to his clear talent in the director's chair. It only saddens me that he is so good, as this probably means he will be doing less acting which is a shame for all of Hollywood. Finally, Anna Kendrick was spectacular. I was never much of a fan, but this movie changed, and blew, my mind. Though some might disagree, I believe Kendrick was extremely subtle with how she played her character. She slowly snuck up on you as a complicated person, while not overdoing it as most actors and actresses tend to do in a smaller role. She was heroic in this movie, in a very real-life, down-to-earth, generous way. Essentially, I believe everyone should take the time to see this movie. Don't let what critics say deter you from the heartfelt, quirky, and touching movie that the Hollars embodies. Watch it, laugh, cry, and just be happy that young talent like John Krasinski is still out there waiting for their moment to shine.
