Storyline

Mia, an aspiring actress, serves lattes to movie stars in between auditions and Sebastian, a jazz musician, scrapes by playing cocktail party gigs in dingy bars, but as success mounts they are faced with decisions that begin to fray the fragile fabric of their love affair, and the dreams they worked so hard to maintain in each other threaten to rip them apart.

Boring...
30 December 2016 | by See all my reviews

Most boring movie ever... As is normal with movies today, the worst, most sleep- inducing movies seem to get the best reviews from professional critics.

I have to say that the requirements of ten lines for a movie review is ridiculous. If you don't like a movie, why does one need to write so much? Liking a movie makes it easy to write a long review, hating a movie doesn't take long at all.

Knowing Hollywood, this movie will probably be nominated for a million awards, even though it doesn't deserve anything. What it deserves is to be forgotten completely.
