Movie Review: And So It Goes
Cathy Dee | On 07, Aug 2014
And So It Goes is out in cinemas now.
So to start off I should make clear that I am not usually a fan of the great American comedy/drama/romance movies that make a habit of turning up in cinemas every season.
But I was pleasantly surprised by And So It Goes (however that could have been due to my very low expectations). So please donâ€™t take my word for it!
The film stars Michael Douglas as Oren, a self-obsessed real estate agent whose life is thrown into chaos after his estranged son leaves a grand-daughter he didnâ€™t know about in his care. In classic Diane Keaton fashion, her character, Lean (Orenâ€™s neighbour) comes to the rescue and helps share the guardianship of the grand-daughter.
Through a series of events Oren ultimately learns how to love again. And So It Goes is a tale that proves it is never too late to change your path and open up your heart to happiness – touching.
However there are some twists and turns thrown in for good measure (like the MOST unrealistic labour scene I have ever witnessed) that make And So It Goes stand out amongst the usual all-in-one comedy/drama/romance weâ€™re use to.
So if youâ€™re after something easy, something with a nice ending and something familiar And So It Goes could be exactly what youâ€™re looking for.
And So It Goes is out in cinemas on 7 August.
