As he walks he comes to rest in front of a church and when the bell hits midnight. His swift off onto a new adventure. He Finds himself going back in time to an era he longed to live in.
Woody’s execution of this movie was nicely done. I do feel that some areas of the movie was a bit whimsical but in overall I enjoyed watching the movie. This movie was very creative, moving and also one of a kind and I now understand why Woody Deserve those academy awards. From the one frame into the next there was this smooth transition that took place. There was a nice balance throughout the movie and one cannot really say that the one era over powered the other.Wilson like always manages to captivate audiences with his honest performances. You can see that he really becomes one with his character. Also a very strong performance from McAdam who portrays the role of Inez. Michael sheen also delivered a strong performance however I don”t think it was as strong as Wilson’s and McAdam. Love the music, decor, and how the blended in with the story. Job well done.
