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.
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.
The story is simple, touching; scenes are beautiful. You'd better watch it in a sunny afternoon.
It's just like having a cup of tea or coffee with your old friends, talking, laughing, thinking
This is a movie worth spending your time watching it..
Worthtful and Beautiful
Uninspired. Flat. William Hurt is a bright spot but then again...when isn't he?
I decided to watch this film after seeing some stills in tumblr, Kristen Stewart in a different role and of course, Eddie Redmayne. I know this is an indie film so I had of have a high expectation (because indies' plot line are good) but I had to say the Yellow Handkerchief's plot is pretty simple and not that well presented. There are indies that certainly have simple plots but are stretched and presented well. The constant flashbacks were indeed getting on me and there is just a lot of talking going on that wasn't really able to provoke my emotion.
I would have to say that Kristen Stewart is a bit different than her usual roles although that there…
As weird as a movie can be. Stewart is better in this film than at any others I've seen her in. Redmayne's always good so far so I wasn't surprised about him. Altogether an interesting movie.
