Movie Review: St. Vincent (2014)

St. Vincent (2014)

Watched BluRay (via Netflix) September 2015

Rating: 3.5 to 4 stars

Very brief synopsis (via IMDB): A young boy whose parents have just divorced finds an unlikely friend and mentor in the misanthropic, bawdy, hedonistic war veteran who lives next door.

This film surprised me.  All the performances were above average.  Granted, this wasn’t much of a stretch for Bill Murray, but he did have a few shining moments.  Lots of good laughs along with some very touching tragedy.  We were all smiling and crying by the time the credits rolled.

I can see why it did so well at last year’s film festivals.  Give this one a try.  You’ll probably like it.
