Last week I did something out of the ordinary and went to the cinema a shocking two nights in a row, and was pleasantly surprised both trips. It was cheap Tuesday on Granville street and the film looked like fun "The Kids Are All Right". The film is about two lesbian parents coming to terms with their children getting in touch with their sperm donor and consequently letting him become a part of their lives. It was really funny and there was a refreshing level of acting on all parts.
The second one was the lottery ticket, a free pass found in the comic store on Granville street, hmmm should I risk losing two hours of my time watching a film I have heard nothing about? The flyer was a really bad printed image of a red fish and the film itself was named "Catfish". I checked out the trailor as a precaution, it simply gave an intro of it being another "Facebook movie" and tells you creepily that "the last 40 minutes of the film will take you on an emotional rollar-coaster ride that you won't be able to shake for days". This convinced me it was going to be gruesome...It's basically a really well edited documentary about a woman who in an attempt to brighten up her increasingly mundane life and make up for life choices that limited her creativity, creates layer upon layer of fake people and their lives on Facebook. The lead up is well done and the conversations genuinely funny.
If you had to see one, see "Catfish" just because it's more original. But both have hot brunette eye candy in the form of Nev Schulman and Mark Ruffalo. Just saying.
