The Truth about Emanuel (2013)

01 Feb 2014

empathy and sympathy

fresh perspective
cliché message

immersive atmosphere

expected outcome
acceptable suspense (developments predicted minutes before)

realistic effects

untraceable (natural) acting

It was an interesting story. The underwater scene is pretty well done. It confronts certain (probably usually taboo) issues on losing a babe, childlessness and growing up with complete absence of a parent in an empathetic light, but failed to really call upon emotional response (from me).
