A ten minute movie review of art-house darling Drake Doremus’ follow up to his critically acclaimed Like Crazy. This new film, Breathe In, is a more mature, reflective drama with superb acting and beautiful lensing. Guy Pearce (Prometheus) and Felicity Jones (The Archers) are subtle and nuanced in their roles as a middle-aged frustrated teacher and the talented ingénue with whom he falls in love. That said, the plot is hackneyed, the pacing slow and the tone uneven.
