A Very Beautiful Film
17 May 2014 | by totalovrdoseSee all my reviews

Recently I had the opportunity to watch the movie Don't Pas Me By. Although originally unsure what to expect, I was incredibly pleased with my choice to watch this particular feature. In short, this is a brilliantly honest, beautifully emotional film on life and the human heart. The film is, in a word, nice, and is sure to put a smile on your face with its messages concerning life and love.

Unlike in other movies where often the lead characters are men, or a combination of men and women, in this feature, the men take a step back and hand over the reigns to the female cast members, the movie focusing on the lives of four specific young women. It is especially interesting to view this change, which may explain why the emotions are so stirring, and with the exception of one particular storyline that seemed a little unrealistic (it was still extremely enjoyable to see regardless), the movie is a joy to watch.

Well known actors, including the always amazing Keith David,Jake Busey, who portrays quite a character, and C. Thomas Howell, whose message is one that fuels a great portion of the film, make cameo appearances that help push the leading characters into making decisions that ultimately affect their lives.

If I was to make one critical observation about the film, I would note how I found it strange that, with the exception of Mr. David, almost the entirety of the cast are Caucasian, and in a film that does a great job at representing humanity, it does not always appear to represent a vast quantity of cultures and ethnicity.

After viewing the film, I immediately set about watching it again; not because I had difficulty understanding the plot - not at all, the movie is very clear and concise; it simply is not every day you come across a film quite like Don't Pass Me By, which requires neither profanities or violence to explore its storyline, and instead does so through the use of character development and relationships.

On a final side note, this was the first time I had the opportunity to view the on-screen talents of actress, co-writer and producer Rachel Noll, who, with her performance, proves herself to be a skilled actress worth looking out for in the future.
