Random impressions of Gabriele Muccino‘s Fathers and Daughters, a decades-spanning relationship drama that apparently has no U.S. distributor as we speak: (1) With A Beautiful Mind lingering in the mind, I’m not sure I’m interested in watching Russell Crowe grapple with another debilitating, career-threatening condition that causes great personal trauma for his character (a writer this time) and a loved one (a daughter); (2) I’m not sure I’m prepared to invest in a relationship drama in which longtime HE nemesis Aaron “tennisball head” Paul portrays the mature but sensitive young suitor of Amanda Seyfried…sorry; (3) the worldwide film industry needs to declare a ten-year moratorium on plots in which a devastating car crash has a significant impact on a major character; (4) Muccino’s two films with Will Smith (’06’s The Pursuit of Happyness, ’08’s Seven Pounds) along with Playing for Keeps (’12) have made his brand synonymous with ungenuine (i.e., mushy, calculating) romantic emotionalism; (5) I can’t forget memories of a younger, thinner Crowe during the 15-year run between Romper Stomper and Cinderella Man, and he really needs to lose 20 pounds with, say, a Billy Bob Thornton vegan diet.
