The Yellow Handkerchief
Set in the present-day southern United States, The Yellow Handkerchief stars William Hurt as Brett Hanson, an ex-convict who embarks on a road trip. Hanson hitches a ride with two troubled teens, Martine (Kristen Stewart) and Gordy (Eddie Redmayne) traversing post-Hurricane Katrina Louisiana in an attempt to reach his ex-wife and long-lost love, May (Maria Bello). Along the way, the three reflect on their existence, struggle for acceptance, and find their way not only through Louisiana, but through life.
Yes. I watched this film. Yes. Kristen Stewart nails her role as a horny rube. If you have a wife and you want a blow job: rent this movie.
A little indie road trip drama that is extremely contrived and completely unoriginal, but not wholly *unpleasant* - there's just nothing really to see here. Kristen Stewart's acting is as lifeless as I was led to believe (I'd never actually seen her in anything), the plot doesn't make much sense, and William Hurt's character is uninteresting to watch. Honestly, the only character I cared about was Eddie Redmayne as an extremely awkward teenage boy (much more excited about seeing him in Les Miserables now), but he was the fourth billed character and certainly the least important of the three we followed most of the time. Disappointing, because I would easily have watched an entire movie with him as the central figure. Instead, I just sat patiently and waited for it to go somewhere.
Meeeeehhhhhh. Teens being teens. Roadtrip "post-Katrina", which didn't really come across at all. K Stew still breathes audibly, Eddie is a cute as ever, but neither character is really developed as much as I'd have wanted. I felt it was done about 75%. A little more growth and it would have been a better received film for me.
The Yellow Handkerchief is an independent drama film by Udayan Prasad. Starring William Hurt and Kristen Stewart. It is remake of Japanese film of the same name (幸福の黄色いハンカチ). William Hurt plays Brett Hanson an ex-convict being released after 6 years in prison. He meets two teens namely Kristen Stewart as Martine (in her somewhat good role-she has left her family), and Eddie Redmayne as Gordy (a geek looking). The journey explores their practical-life issues and discussion about acceptance in the society and around love-milieu.
Worth watching drama, stirred with nice performance by William Hurt.
Kristen Stewart. Eddie Redmayne. Young promising actors at the time & now they're both more than successful.
It was a very cute story, which I didn't expect to like but I did. I liked seeing the young couple flourish while there were flashbacks of the older one going through life and its hardships. An ending that makes you smile, I recommend it.
I really liked this one. I didn't know what to expect but the film managed to tug at my heart strings. It was a treat to watch all the characters contemplating their lives and getting to truly know and understand one another on this journey through the back-roads of Louisiana.
William Hurt and Maria Bello are great performers they did an amazing job here and Stewart and Redmayne also managed to keep up with them, the acting was truly great from everyone. Shame that the film had such a limited release that a lot of people weren't aware of it and hence missed out.
surprisingly not lame
Sou mt bobona mesmo. Achei tão lindo esse filme...
I'll admit my initial motivation to watch this was because A) I love Kristen Stewart (and if you don't you have to reevaluate your life because one horrible vampire saga does not define a person) and B) I'm a huge Les Mis fan and who wouldn't want to see a little Marius with extra shaggy hair?
But truly, for the vast duration of the film, I was all about Kristen and Eddie Redmayne. I felt so protective over both their characters, especially Gordy. Eddie's performance was just spectacular. He had to play this perky, eccentric guy that made both you and Martine want to rip your hair out at the very start, but as we spend more time with him,…
A romantic film that doesn't resort to melodrama, The Yellow Handkerchief is a strong drama that features great performances from the talented cast.
Tough, imperfect, but still criminally under-appreciated. The film has an undeniable artistic power. Every little detail in it -- the color of glinting glass, the sound of crickets or rainfall, the noise of modestly run-down suburban activity, even sometimes the feel of harsh heat and sweat and interesting company -- is part of a gorgeous impressionistic landscape.
It does have a few stumbling points: an occasionally sticky sentimentality; a too precise "unlikely friends + peculiar road trip" drama; a mawkish and unfair use of its protagonist's ex-con redemption. But there's a rawness at the core of it that's absolutely astonishing.
