Gorgeous, hilarious, and well-written film (by ccrobinson)
If you haven't seen Tumbledown yet, you are in for a treat. Rebecca Hall plays the widow of Hunter Miles, a fictional singer with a cult following. She has stacked enough wood for years of a comfortable widowhood--living among her husband's instruments and keepsakes in the lakeside cabin in Maine that they shared. She's forced from being a hermit by the brash academic played by Jason Sudeikis who appears on his European motorcycle to dig up biographical details on Hunter for his PhD dissertation. But Hunter's widow turns out to be more fascinating than the memory of <more>
Sudeikis' musical hero. And the rest is chemistry. We get to watch Jason Sudeikis and Rebecca Hall on a date at the town dump, at a family Easter gone wrong, and standing on a sheet of frozen ice surrounded by the crazy whale sounds of a thawing lake in the Maine woods. The rapport between Rebecca Hall and Jason Sudeikis is riveting. Their banter is smart and funny. And Damien Jurado's haunting tunes give the movie a depth that reverberates for days to come. The film is gorgeous, moving and entertaining.
So Moving That I Can't Stop Talking About It (by sjaneco)
Having been raised in Maine, I was excited to watch this movie as much as I am for any movie set in the state where I spent my childhood. I was not disappointed. This movie was not only charming and noteworthy, it also evoked a certain kind of peaceful serenity and sense of hope in me. I believe that it was filmed primarily in Canada but the countryside appeared the same as the rolling blue/green hills of Northern and Western Maine. The soundtrack is incredible. The music by Damien Jurado check out the soundtrack is often playing in the background like Hannah's lost husband is an acting <more>
character and it is so incredibly beautiful that you really don't ever want the movie to end. When it does you really want to go out and buy that soundtrack. When I watch Hannah struggle through her heartbreak, I am moved. Rebecca Hall does an amazing job representing a true Maine woman in all of her glorious strengths and weaknesses. When the winter is cold and the electricity is out, you light a fire and snuggle up in a sleeping bag in front of it. That's just what you do- you don't complain about it. Maine is a tough place. So vast and beautiful and sprinkled with complex people with their own stories and hardships. Jason Sudeikis was gorgeous as always. This was a romantic comedy and I definitely did laugh...often. The accents are on point and lets be honest, a real Maine accent is almost impossible to be truly recreated by an actor with no real experience down east. Every single charming character was perfectly created and important to the plot, in my opinion, as small as their part may have been. Finally let me give a huge round of applause to the writer. The script! Every verbal interaction was so intelligent, sometimes comedic, sometimes full of emotion and passion. "How is New York? Full of too many people as always?" It's just smart. I appreciate dialogue like words on a page. It was beautifully written. Some of us have been waiting for a movie like this and I couldn't be more satisfied . It's a definite "buy it, add it to your library, and watch it again and again on cold winter days" kind of movie. Tumbledown is a movie metaphor and a mountain...Now I've seen them both with my own eyes and they are amazing.
Inspired and entertaining study on the inevitable selfishness of grief (by reviewcentralny)
Understated, honest and soulfully choreographed. The cast is engaging, authentic and surprisingly interesting even in the most ordinary situations, of which there are few. Grief may be the premise of this film, but the result is a calm escape into a world you'll be happy to spend some time in.After reading about the film, I did expect an Indie movie with the usual predictable story lines and romantic frou frou, and there is no shortage of that, but there is another layer of depth that caught me off guard. The intimate warmth of the soundtrack, like the weightless smoke of a dying candle <more>
in a quiet room, lingers long after the end credits are over. Some of the songs really are beautiful enough to warrant this type of language, trust me. So do the memories of other musicians who left behind their timeless creations along with the shock and mystery of a lifetime cut short. Martyn Bennett and Jeff Buckley, however different the circumstances of their departure, come to mind.Whenever an Indie movie finds the perfect balance between lighthearted, mainstream entertainment and the relatability of a smaller story and budget, it proofs that a solid Indie production can transcend the restrictions of a genre and touch the audience beyond 90 minutes of entertainment.I couldn't think of a single studio produced movie in recent months that achieved 'Tumbledown's subtlety and depth with the same simplicity and grace. To proof my point, this movie would work even without the romance and succeed as a relevant reflection on grief and the responsibility of moving on.
I was expecting a romantic comedy when I got this movie, and I have to say that not only is that not what this is, I was pleasantly surprised. This movie is about grieving and learning to let go of those we've lost, but it is also sweet in a sort of unexpected way. Rebecca Hall and Jason Sudeikis are a great pair and their on-screen chemistry is fantastic. It's the first movie that has made me a fan of Jason Sudeikis. Set in the beautiful Maine mountains, the soft folk music in the background adds to the serenity of the mountainside and the heartbreak Hall's character is <more>
experiencing and the journey you'll go on with her. If you're looking for a movie that is sweet, poignant, and guaranteed to tug at your heartstrings, this is it. I would highly recommend this movie.
Another indie hit win, for Jason Sudeikis! (by Hellmant)
'TUMBLEDOWN': Four Stars Out of Five Indie rom-com/drama flick; starring Rebecca Hall and Jason Sudeikis. The film tells the story of a widow, still coping with the death of her folk singer husband, who must deal with a New York writer; that comes to her small town looking to write a story on him. The movie also costars Dianna Agron, Joe Manganiello, Griffin Dunne, Blythe Danner and Richard Masur. It was directed by first-time feature filmmaker Sean Mewshaw, and written by Mewshaw and Desi and Desiree Van Til both first-time screenwriters . I enjoyed it.Hannah Miles Hall is still <more>
grieving over the death of her husband; a folk singer, who was somewhat of a celebrity in her rural Maine town. Her family, and friends, all think she needs to get over him and move on. That troubled healing is further aggravated, when a New York writer, named Andrew McCabe Sudeikis , comes to town investigating the beloved musician's death. He's writing a book on the singer, and Hannah doesn't like the idea of it at all .I'm becoming a bigger Jason Sudeikis fan, with every movie he does! He's always funny, and he always picks quality projects too; the roles, he plays, always seem like real and relatable people. This film is no exception. I also like how he does a lot of lower-budget indie flicks too. Hall is great in this movie as well. She's definitely not as funny, but her performance is topnotch; and the two have beautiful chemistry together. It's yet another indie hit win, for Jason Sudeikis!Watch our movie review show 'MOVIE TALK' at: https://youtu.be/n2qWxeZ0Tck
Torn: Not Accurate but Delightfully Beautiful (by kathyhiggy)
As being a Maine native, it seemed like all of the costumes, scenery, and accents were FAR off. Like Joe Manganiello can honestly pass as the worst fake Mainer. This might not have anything to go with the movie, but it just bugged me on how stereotyped this movie made Maine. Now, concerning the actual story... although predictable, one of the most beautiful films I've seen in awhile #1 being Before We Go . I also just want to bring attention to the AMAZING soundtrack as well. It can only be explained as pure art; the movie in general is just art. This review makes no sense, but I <more>
encourage you to watch it if you enjoy an emotional story line with romantic undertones and a touch of viewer interpretation. Also, if you love Jason Sudeikis, this will NOT disappoint. It's an honest, and although not necessarily an original screenplay, still raw and hopeful. So, definitely watch for the story and not the Maine aspect because it's sh*t which is really too bad.
