My Blueberry Nights 
Slow But Romantic
3/4 stars

I liked the hyper-stylized, soul-searching, romantic tone of this movie. It was interesting for me to watch Norah Jones’ character change over the course of the film from the things she learned on the road. I agree with most people when they said that Jones’ acting is a bit amateurish but as the movie goes on, I got used to it so it’s more than forgiven. The weakness of the film lies in the second act when Jones meets Rachel Weisz’s husband. The film got really slow and that particular storyline was somewhat unnecessary. Things quickly picked up when Natalie Portman appeared on screen. She was quirky and unpredictable, which served to be the foil of Norah Jones’ character. I feel like Jones learned a lot from Portman when it comes to trusting people. Strangely enough, I thought Jones and Law had great chemistry and I completely bought the spark between them. I wanted to know more about them as they interacted and wished that the film focused on them a little bit more. Regardless, this film is not for everyone because it requires one’s full attention if one was to fully appreciate the way Norah Jones’ character evolved in a span of less than a year.
