3SMReviews: Juliet, Naked
This post contains affiliate links. Please read my disclosure statement for more information.
In Juliet, Naked, Jesse Peretz crafts an extremely awkward romantic comedy and takes advantage of the facility of uncomfortable comic timing of Rose Byrne, Chris O’Dowd and even Ethan Hawke. It’s a great catalog of people in a middle-age place of stagnation and transition with one especially spectacular scene that takes place in a hospital room. I think this movie didn’t quite know what to do with the ending, and that felt a little bumbled, but other than those last five minutes, this was a very fun film.
Cost: $1.50 from Redbox*
Where watched: at home
*I have been stalking this movie at Redbox since Thanksgiving weekend when I checked five different machines. It was always checked out.
