3SMReviews: My Life Without Me movie review

The review:

I’m not sure how I missed Isabel Coixet’s My Life Without Me as I’m usually all in on anything Sarah Polley, anything Mark Ruffalo, and I’m a fan of movies that explore complexities in relationships.* Though there were times that I felt like the slower-than-usual speech patterns of Ruffalo and Polley were distracting, there was a lot to like in this film. Plus, I feel like the ratio of upper-middle class/rich people stories to grinding poverty is about 7-to-1 in the movie world, so the living situation in this was an interesting change.

The verdict: Recommended

Cost: Free from Multnomah County Library
Where watched: at home

*But thanks to Josh Larsen’s Filmspotting recommendation, I caught up with this film!
