The Sum of Us (1994)
I randomly decided to watch this movie last night. I had seen a part of it a long time ago but decided to watch the whole thing last night as Netflix recommended it, plus its one of Russell Crowe’s first films. Russell Crowe may be a total douche, but he is a legitimately good actor. This film is a little Australian flick about a gay man and his dad. Jeff (Crowe) is in his twenties, openly gay, and his father Harry is more than understanding. They are best friends and very supportive of each other. The story revolves around their relationship with each other and the relationships they try to form with others. The film was good overall, but I honestly got a bit bored in the middle. Written originally as a play, many of the theatrical elements stayed intact; most annoyingly is the Ferris Bueller style talking to the camera. Other than that I don’t have much to say about the film, it was a heart-warming little flick with a bittersweet ending. In my opinion the most touching part of the entire film is the backstory about the lesbian grandma. That was the most interesting, and beautifully tragic moments in the movie. I was more interested in her story.
My rating: 6/10
