Review of the film "Collateral Beauty" (2016)

Greetings, dear readers.

The world premiere of the American drama film "Collateral Beauty" took place on December 12, 2016.


Three days later, the film appeared in the Russian box office.
One of the main roles here is played by will Smith, an actor loved by many millions of viewers around the world. I am also not indifferent to his work, watched a lot of movies with his participation.

I have to say that this film shocked me to the core. I have long digested what I saw in this film. Will Smith appeared to me in a very different perspective. I've never seen him like this before.

Here he plays the role of the owner of an advertising Agency, who survived the terrible tragedy of losing his beloved daughter, his baby, who was only six years old when she died of a terrible incurable disease.

After that, the hero of Smith, Howard inlet fell into a deep depression, abandoning all business and living by his own, only he understood the rules, in his closed world. No matter how his friends and colleagues tried to reach him, everything was in vain, so they went to the extreme, using for this purpose the letters of the unfortunate father, addressed to time, death and love...


To be honest, I was struck by the depth of grief experienced by the main character throughout the film. It gave the impression of the reality of what was happening on the screen, as if all this was happening in reality.


I never even thought that the actor, known to us, mainly in the role of Comedy, suddenly appear before the audience in dramatic terms. He says little, makes little gestures, but all this creates a tragic image of a father who lost his daughter and lost all hope for a new life, for happiness, for love...

How hard, how difficult it is granted the words: "My daughter's name was Olivia, she was only 6 years old, she died..."but that was the beginning of his return to life.

I advise you to watch this movie. It is not easy to watch, because it tells about the heavy drama, about how to learn to live with this pain, to overcome yourself, to go back to people.

The authors of the film managed to create the appropriate atmosphere, the plot, which dynamically leads us from beginning to end. Pleased and acting. In addition to will Smith, Edward Norton, Kate Winslet, Michael peña, Helen Mirren and other actors played in the film. Everything was interesting and convincing. Despite the tragedy of what was happening on the screen, there was a place for humor, and good.

Thank you for your attention, see you soon!

With respect to you, @mrfantastis!
