Dear Zone might be worth watching, but only for the cast.
If you enjoy reading my Spoiler-Free thoughts, please follow my blog 🙂
“Dear Zoe explores the grieving process with sweet messages, but in addition to being extremely generic, Gren Wells makes questionable creative decisions that remove emotional impact from the narration-dependent narrative. Typical film that’s worth watching more for the extraordinary performances of the cast than for the formulaic screenplay.
Kweku Collins impresses on his debut, Theo Rossi demonstrates his underrated range, and Sadie Sink continues to prove why she’s one of the most fascinating, talented actresses of her generation.”
Before you watch it, and after you’ve watched it.
I watched this story about a family going through turmoil after a tragic loss simply because Sadie Sink starred. I was not let down by my choice.
The story itself is a simple one of happiness turned to grief, then grief turned to acceptance, and I agree with some that it is slightly predictable and slightly melodramatic.
However I forgive all of that for 3 major reasons.
Sadie Sink is fabulous. She’s very expressive and very intelligent with how she is viewed and therefore how she must portray her character. She carries this film easily.
The story is perfectly delivered with all main characters delivering quality results. Some of the dialogue is quote worthy: I loved the Before/After narration at the end. And the directing is very much top level. I loved the way all the characters were developed properly (except David for some reason) and I did feel a connection with each of them as a result.
It would have been easy with the handsome Jimmy and the lovely Tess to have had them fall in love instantly and give us a steamy sex scene to show their passion for each other. However, they were very reserved, only enjoying the odd, brief kiss now and again for some time.
When they did get passionate everything was suggested or hinted. There was not one single bit of passionate face smashing, or orgasmic thrash, or bare breasted chest heaving like we see so much of.
I gave it an extra point just for that. But the other 7 I gave because it truly is a great film about loss and coping and recovering.
