Just Before I Go (2014)

just before i go “When its darkest we can see the stars. They’re always there. You just gotta remember to tip your head back and look up.” – Ted

Number of Times Seen – 1 (14 Jan 2016)

Brief Synopsis – Before he commits suicide, a man decides to go back to his home town to make amends.

My Take on it – I had absolutely no idea what to expect with this movie and was surprised by how charming it was.

Definitely was a great choice for Courtney Cox to choose for her directorial debut.

The characters are a bit quirky but its easy to identify with them.

The message of the story is definitely handled with care and affection and it makes one feel as if the characters are all seeking similar things in life to what we all want.

The language and some of the situations go slightly too far in some scenes, but ultimately it feels realistic.

Bottom Line – Great directorial debut for Cox. Some scenes are quite crude, but by doing so, they feel slightly more realistic. Quirky characters that work to make us laugh but also to feel for them. Has a clear cut message for us all to try and grasp. Recommended!

MovieRob’s Favorite Trivia – Both David Fincher (personal friend of Courteney Cox) and Gus Van Sant (they share the same agent) saw rough cuts and made her useful suggestions. (From IMDB)

Rating – Glove Worthy
