This was a lovely and complicated story about 2 young people who live on the fringe of society only to find the center of it in each other. This is one of my favorite movies to date. It doesn't attempt to put lipstick on the pig in the room. She's a whore and he's a gimp but the 2 of them together is just beautiful. It doesn't have special effects, nudity, kick ass music or gory violence. This movie works because it's honest. Cinderella of the streets meets her prince in some poor run down town.The country music was decent and it's perfect for this movie. A picture <more>
'Safelight' delivers a fine-tuned mix of affection, desolation, loneliness, beauty and human spirit. Leaving you with a good and well- balanced aftertaste. Although officially set in the 1970-s, 'Safelight' was never meant to carry you back. Which shouldn't be considered a failure, but much more an underlining of its story's timeless character.To provide this timelessness, 'Safelight's plot puts some weight on the Californian landscape. Melting it more or less with Evan Peters and Juno Temple's acting.Yes, 'Safelight' has become a fine production. <more>
It reminds at the lost relationships that many of us once experienced.
