This film has a great performance by Richard Gere and also by Sam Neill. I think the film shows a lot of life of America. But what I liked more than the story itself is the soundtrack and music. The songs were so good. I've seen this film twice. The first time I watched it was on cable and I liked it, but the second time I watched it I liked it even more. I think the music and the acting are what made the film so great. I think this is a great film to watch with friends and it shows life in America. It is good for kids and adults and even for people who have never lived in America.

Beale Street Could Talk was an unexpected surprise for me. It was almost the same as The Secret in Their Eyes, except that this one was more compelling and interesting. I didn't know who all the characters were, and the audience might have been a little confused as well. It was only because of this, that I was interested in the movie. I was a little bit disappointed, however, with the ending. It was slightly rushed, and the ending could have been so much better. Still, I was interested enough to keep watching. Beale Street Could Talk was an interesting film, and I recommend it to those who have not seen it yet. It was a different approach to the "love story" genre, and it was entertaining. 7.5/10

I've read some of the reviews and I really don't see the connection between this and What's Eating Gilbert Grape. But I've always had a thing for romantic, naturalistic films about the blues, and this film certainly did not disappoint. As a teenager, I was looking for the next James Dean, and this movie certainly fit the bill. The director, Richard Attenborough, is a poet, so I was particularly impressed by the way he connected the two stories. The actors were all quite good, particularly Jonathan Taylor Thomas (who was the poster child for the blues) and the late, great Duane Eddy. This film also got a lot of play on local radio stations, and it seems to have caught on well with the public, although the studio audience laughed at the first few scenes. I think most people would probably agree that this film is a bit slow, but it's all the more interesting to see a great story brought to the screen. I think people who are looking for the next Black Swan or The King of Kong will probably not be so impressed with this film, but for those who like to be amazed, it is a good film.

This is a good movie, but it does have a problem. One of the characters in the movie seems to be dying, but we never really see the person die. The rest of the movie is set up so that he dies, but the way the story is told makes it seem that he is still alive. This is confusing, and makes the movie less enjoyable. I did like the movie, but the storyline and writing is a bit confusing.

I really loved this film. It's extremely sad and really inspiring. I would definitely watch this again, and recommend it to anyone.

I never thought I would get this movie, but now I am amazed that it got a 6.4/10. That is an incredible score for such a low budget movie. I am glad I have a job, and I am happy that I am in a situation where I can give this movie a rating. There is no depth to the movie, so many of the scenes are boring. It's not a bad movie, it's just a bad movie. I can't say that it's good or bad, but I can say that it's not good, and it's not bad. I wish I could rate it higher, because it deserves a higher rating. I only gave it an 8/10 because I am happy with my rating.
