Some Things That Stay (2004)

[Image]

A coming-of-age story of a teenage girl from a liberal upbringing who moves to a conservative baptist community in rural 1950s America. Adated from the novel by Sarah Willis .


I don't usually like to see movies while they're still in theaters because of high ticket prices but I saw a poster for Some Things That Stay and I thought, "that young actress looks intelligent and mysterious, not like the usual blonde teenybopper BS". So I decided to take the plunge and see this movie on it's opening night.

I must tell you, I was happily surprised. I went to this film with no expectations. I didn't really know what it would be about, but the raw emotion and honest teenage experiences expressed by Katie Boland left me feeling rather satisfied with my decision. Alberta Watson also did a fantastic job as the role of Tamara's disease-stricken mother and I must also add that I was quite impressed with the comedic stylings of Megan Park as Tamara's friend Brenda.

The film was wonderfully directed by Gail Harvey, and pulled together in the kind of kitschy 50's way that leaves you feeling warm and happy, even if the storyline tended not to be so uplifting. I also thought that the film was well-shot, many beautiful images of a 1950's countryside will remain in my mind for weeks to come.

This film as a whole was quirky and great. I found it to be unpredictable and although the story ends in a somewhat open-ended way, I was still left satisfied. Whether you are looking for a fun, yet powerful coming-of-age story, or simply want to reminisce about life in the 1950's, I guarantee this film is for you. Even if you have no expectations, it is still quite likely that you will be most impressed. Give this one a shot!


Stars Katie Boland, she used to star in 'The Zack Files', mostly just walk-in roles, but when she walked-in she looked fantastic!!! Zack Files were great and really watchable with her starring, btw they are now available on DVD :D

thanks ;)

p.s. talking of US TV series look out for "Marina Malota" in Odd Man Out...

This is only for fans of Katie, otherwise I would say it's a boring chick flick :evil: Why can't directors in the US do something interesting with young talent :P

Sorry Jkecal, but no clips please. We have discussed this many times here at the new FLM site that we do not post scenes/clips highlighting interesting scenes. This is one of the changes that has been made on the new site that we do not want carried over from the old Firstlovemovies site.
