Angst is the theme of this week’s column. Begin Again has an unhappy music executive bonding with a young singer-songwriter, Palo Alto revolves around a group of teenagers who have a knack for finding trouble and Hateship Loveship has a teenager trying to play matchmaker with her troubled father’s love life.
All three movies demonstrate a certain modicum of anguish, but also the road to redemption and letting go. In addition, all have some serious Hollywood star power behind them, which means the seats won’t be empty on their premiere dates in local theaters. Some hardship befalls everyone, even in movies, which reminds moviegoers that even people in movies aren’t perfect.
The trials and tribulations faced in these movies will fascinate moviegoers as the characters go on their separate journeys to find themselves and find their own places in the world.
