“Sometimes you just look at everything and it’s all just different.”
– Zoe Kazan, as Rebecca Porter in In your eyes
Hello lovely people from the inter-webs!
Today I want to briefly review the film, “In your eyes” by Joss Whedon, released in 2014. Starring, the excellent Michael Stahl-David, and wondrous Zoe Kazan. I would like to say that I must have seen this trailer a year ago, and it wasn’t until just recently that I finally decided to watch it.
To start off, I think this film is quite unique in certain aspects, compared to what I’m used to watching. This is a story about Dylan and Rebecca; who so happen to have a telepathic bond, that has allowed them to feel, see and hear each other’s experiences, although they aren’t entirely aware of the situation and how it’s happening.
Even though this film is a romantic comedy with a twist of science fiction and fantasy, I can’t help but enjoy it, for the reason that it goes beyond the standard rom-com. Rather than focusing on a love story about a woman and man meeting by mere coincidence at any cliche place (not that I have a problem with those types of rom-com because I love cliche movies as well), it illustrates love at another level; this is more than physical love which happens when two people are emotionally connected. This is depicted through the love that forms between Rebecca and Dylan, in the process of figuring out their telepathic connection, and realizing that the other is real and not just a part of their conscious. In a way, the concept I grasped on was how strong a connecting can be even though your significant other or in this case “soul mate” may be miles away.
With that being said, I did enjoy the film its most likely not everyone’s cup of tea, but it has the potential of entertaining you. I was extremely satisfied with the cinematography, as well as the leading characters portrayed by Zoe Kazan and Michael Stahl-David.
I will leave you with these stills from the film so you can see why I loved the cinematography. Hope you enjoy them.
P.S. Have you ever seen the movie? Or the trailer for it? I will recommend it if you haven’t already, and as of today the film is still available on Netflix.
