An intelligent romantic comedy that chooses to deal with issues of race and perception in a straight-forward way, from a point of view not often seen: that of a successful, upper-class black woman.At the beginning of the film, Kenya wakes up her PC, which is clearly a Dell, but it's running Mac OS X. I am glad to see that Hollywood has finally caught up to what is everyday life for the rest of us.The movie, Saving Mr Banks, charts the fractious relationship between the author, played by Emma Thompson, and Walt Disney (Tom Hanks) who pursued Travers for almost 20 years before persuading her to sell him the rights to her Mary Poppins books.But entertaining though the Poppins saga may be, it was only one interlude in Travers’ extraordinary life, which saw her navigating Bohemian salons (and bedrooms) as she sought recognition and an escape from her own grim childhood."Blind" has done very well with critics so far as well as on the film festival circuit--having won many awards including some very prestigious ones at Sundance.However, for the life of me, I am left with very little to say about this film.Born to a feckless father and an inept mother, they have been dumped into the care of their grandparents, who plainly cannot cope.
Over time, they hit it off, but Kenya's reservations about the acceptance their romance will find among her friends and family threatens everything.
The screen shows the telltale Finder icons on the right side of the screen and the desktop picture is one of the images that ships with OS X. My girlfriends and I laughed the whole movie through. Interracial dating is no longer a taboo nor is it 'sometinhg new.' Blacks and whites have been dating and getting married in America since the sixties.
A few shots later, the closeup of her calendar also shows the three "gel buttons" in the upper-left corner. It is a lovely, fun, serious and romantic movie all at the same time. I'm just glad to see that Hollywood is big enough to show that black women are just as desirable as women of other races. You two did a wonderful job making the relationship seem real.
After all, critics love it and I am a critic..I felt confused by the whole thing and have no idea what I saw.
Additionally, I think most viewers will feel the same way and I cannot see who the audience is for this one other than film critics.
