User Reviews: Saw this tonight at Tribeca. The "love conquers all" message is certainly worthy, but this just isn’t a very well told story. The scripts contains few surprises (no point even bothering to spoil the plot here – you’ll soon guess where the story is heading), and the directing is flat. The film’s point of view is a big problem. The director doesn’t seem to be sure if it’s Mae-West’s or James’s story, so in the end it’s hard to care for either. The overblown score tries too hard to fill in the emotions that the script doesn’t provide. Some nice effects work in places though. I can’t imagine this will be a huge hit, but if you see it coming to your local cinema best look for other options.
