Elizabethtown
Nostalgic 'dramedy' from Cameron Crowe


submit to reddit

Elizabethtown

Plot
Life is not going well for Drew Baylor (Bloom) -he's just been fired alter losing his employers millions of dollars, and then learns that his father has died. But rather than drive him further into despair, his father's passing brings him back from the brink of suicide, giving him purpose and kickstarting a romance with air stewardess Claire (Dunst).


Verdict
If you've found Cameron Crowe guilty of excessive sentiment in the past, this atypically heavy-handed 'dramedy' will leave you cold. But Crowe is still a master navigator of swampy territory, and any movie that can warm the heart and tickle the funny bone without selling its soul is to be cherished, warts and all.
