Sam Elliot and Laura Prepon are splendid but the movie is dull as dirt

Tin-Eared and Boring

sam Elliott, like "the hero" lee hayden, made one "big" film forty years ago and has spent the rest of the time as a journeyman actor and voice over artist. I don't know the relationship between the writer/director brett haley and mr. Elliott, but this film is definitely based on sam Elliott. that said, the film is a slice of life about an older man trying to get by. he is estranged from his daughter, but seems to have a decent relationship with his ex wife, played by mr. Elliott's real life wife, Katherine ross. the hero meets and begins a relationship with laura prepon, almost,(almost) unrecognizable from her "that 70's show" days. he has a neighbor, nick offerman, who he shares joints with. that's about it. nothing profound, just a good movie. enjoy. by the way, a journeyman actor is a good thing. this movie is full of them.

a man trying to get by

Decided to see this film solely on what little I'd read about it--that it was one of Sam Elliott's best performances, that it was a quiet character study (I'm drawn to those types of films: as one example "20th Century Women" was my favorite film last year), and also because I like Nick Offerman. I wasn't disappointed, am glad I saw it, but it was, for me, one of the saddest film experiences I've had in some time. By film's end it left me downbeat and depressed. The script did a good job of reminding me just how cruel life can be at times when it comes to unexpected illnesses and trust in others sometimes being rewarded with unthinking breach of that trust at the worst possible time. It drives those points home very effectively, and that was the frame of mind it left me in as I exited the showing. Other aspects of the script, however, were a bit bumpy for me, with plot developments that at times seemed forced and unlikely, but Sam smooths over those jarring bumps and carries the film from start to finish solely on the strength of his acting--and quite possibly on the strength of his voice, which always sounds committed to whatever its saying (something the script uses to bittersweet and also amusing effect for the film's final moment, by the way). I definitely recommend the film to Sam's fans, and to fans of quiet character studies, but I might also recommend scheduling time to see a lively comedy immediately after.
