Girlfriend Movie Reviews
User reviews on Girlfriend
I really admire that this film has an actor with Down syndrome and Evan Sneider did a really good job with his role, it is especially impressive because he has no prior acting experience. I also really liked Amanda Plummer, she played Sneider’s mother and the scenes they share are very powerful and touching. However, the film itself was not good and i do not recommend seeing it in the theaters. I think that the director was trying to manipulate audience’s feelings a little bit and i do not like that. The film is not realistic and even a little bit creepy at times.
This is a drama directed by Justin Lerner and starring Jackson Rathbone, Shannon Woodward and Amanda Plummer. It is admiring that the film features an actor with Down’s syndrome and I was really touched by that but the film itself is not good at all. The script of the movie is completely full of terrible ideas and it ruins the film. The way women are characterized in this film is absolutely terrible and even offensive in a way. The film is not challenging and it does not make you think at all and i simply hate films like that. The film is a pitty fest and I do not think that people with Down syndrome appreciate that kind of view. Overall, it is a bad film and I do not recommend seeing it in the theaters.
