Really nice, feel good movie. Great acting all round, especially from Ben Affleck as Uncle Charlie. (This was a bit of a surprise to me as I’m not a huge fan of his). The first half of the movie was spell binding with the relationship between Uncle Charlie and the young JR taking center stage. The second half dragged on a little too long, but it was worth hanging in there. The movie did a very good job of character building and making sure you stayed invested in the outcome for JR.
As for the one and two star reviews. The movie was a bit slow at times, so if you like movies that move at a faster pace, this probably isn’t the one for you.
On the other hand, if you like music from the 70’s and ‘80’s the soundtrack is brilliant. (That’s what got me through the slow bits).
