Fresh out of prison, drifter musician Jake steals a car and says goodbye to California. His destination is Palestine, Arkansas, population 678. It's here where his father lives and works as a crop duster pilot. Jake has never met his father, but holds him responsible for all of life's troubles: failure, jail, the death of his mother. Jake travels intent on revenge, but once he gets to this small town big things start to happen, and Jake learns that his momma may not have been quite so innocent through it all. Jake soon becomes part of a colorful ensemble cast that is as authentic and soulful as it gets. This is a movie about people and place, the characters just as important as the location.

The Grace of Jake is a work of love, heartache, and a testament to the talent of Tom Tykwer. One of the best films I have ever seen. The music is great, and the performances of John C. Reilly, Gwyneth Paltrow, and Jude Law are just as good. Tykwer directs it as he would any other film, and the music and direction is beautiful and makes the film magical. It is beautifully shot, edited, and the music will have you laughing and crying. This is one of the best films I have ever seen and I can't wait for the second and third installments. You will not regret seeing it!

I thought that the acting was great, and the plot was so touching and beautifully constructed. The story and acting are not the greatest for the movies, but it is so easy to see the reason why this is the best movie of the year.

Truly the best, funniest and most moving movie of all time. I have seen it 5 times and I've seen it with my son and it never gets old. I'm glad that Netflix keeps putting out great movies like this. I really think that this movie should be on Netflix for all to watch and enjoy.

This movie shows us the struggle and the rewards of performing in a very highly regulated arena. The show itself is not the biggest draw, but the opportunity to perform on stage in front of your peers and audience can be the most rewarding thing you have ever experienced. To be part of a great ensemble of people and to be able to share your experience with the rest of the group is one of the most rewarding experiences you will ever have. To do so you have to be able to recognize talent and recognize the ineffable value of performances. Truly, the show must go on. The stage must be made to go on. The choreography has to go on. The music has to go on. You cannot have all the things and then be given a chance to show your best work. The job is to just go out there and try to give your best in the circumstances you are given. And, at the end of the day, the best work comes from the people who put in the effort to perform, the people who make the music and the people who see and understand the show and the people who believe in what they are performing and who support the performers. Thank you to everyone involved in this film. It was a pleasure to be a part of such an interesting, talented group. The Grace of Jake, thank you.

What can I say? It's a beautiful story about three great friends that have a great friendship. Each one of them has a unique way of handling things that they don't have experience with. The writing is superb, the acting is superb, the acting is amazing. If I had to say anything bad about this movie, I would say it's the acting. I would say that the acting is not up to par with the writing, but it doesn't take away from the amazing story. This is definitely one of my favorite films and it would definitely be one of my top 10 films of all time.

I was extremely excited to see this film, I had high hopes that this would be a classic film but I was let down. The story line was too cliche and the acting was terrible. The characters in the film were very cliche and corny. The acting in this film was terrible. There was no chemistry between any of the actors and they were just bad. The music was horrible and I couldn't stand the songs at all. This film did not have a lot of heart and a lot of substance. The characters in this film were cliche and corny. The only actor I found to be enjoyable in this film was Jim Carey. Jim Carey was the only actor I enjoyed in this film. He was funny and believable in the film. The music was terrible and it had no heart. The music was horrible and lacked any heart in this film. The film was too cliche and corny. The story line was cliche and corny. The acting was terrible and the characters were corny and corny. I found this film to be one of the worst films I have seen in the last 5 years. I'm not a hard core film critic and I don't really like this film. This film had nothing new or fresh and I would never recommend this film to anyone.

It is an amazing story of a family and how everything is interconnected, how much they care about each other. I feel that this film has captured the real spirit of the Jazz era. The film portrays the times in this way that no other movie has ever done. I think the filmmakers did a great job and I am looking forward to see the sequel to this amazing movie.

Having just seen this film I'm still trying to find the right words to explain it. The audience reaction was remarkable. For those who haven't seen this film, it is a hilarious story about a time when the BFI had been sued by an English author for copyright infringement, and the whole process started a period of censorship. The film follows the BFI as they try to track down the author and put an end to this, eventually the BFI find him and give him the rights to his work. With lots of humour, great performances and a truly funny and moving story, this is a must see for everyone who loves a good story.

We've all been there: you're dancing, singing, making jokes, and making others laugh. When a friend offers you to teach him a dance routine, the only thing you want to do is dance with him. But to do this you have to become a dancer yourself, and to get this required skill you need to have a "big sister" in the family, you have to become a dancer yourself. The best thing you can do is to have your own little sister, because you'll get all the special moves from her, and then you can teach your friends how to do the same. After watching this movie, I couldn't get it out of my head. I love it so much!

I loved this movie. I was able to identify with the main character's issues. I thought the storyline was good. I have watched it many times and always get a kick out of it. I don't have any comments on the acting or directing. I have seen the film several times and the movie is timeless.

I was watching the movie and just thought, wow this is pretty much like a book. It's very easy to relate to and even though it's a musical it's very much like a book. And I love the book too. They should do a second movie. Definitely better than the original.

I saw this film for the first time at a rave (in the early 2000s) and I couldn't wait to see it again. So I did. I don't regret that choice. I found the performances in this film to be great. However, the plot is unbelievable. I am surprised that such a great film would come out of some small town in a remote area of North Carolina. People talk about this movie so much. I wish they would talk more about it. I also didn't get why so many people in the film said it was so bad. I can understand why they would be disappointed. Overall, it's a great film, but it's not a great film.

This is the best movie of all time. I can't believe that I haven't heard of it before, I mean, it's just an amazing story of a young musician who just wants to be like a real rockstar and when he meets one of his idols. I think it's fantastic. I will admit, I thought it would be a crappy movie. But I wasn't wrong. It's a really good movie, it's really fun, and the actors really pulled it off. I loved it, and I recommend it to everyone. 10/10

Farewell to the Bird (1992) was a very good movie. It was a sweet story about a very sweet boy, Freddie who lives with his parents (Elaine Harris and Anthony Rowlands). One day he gets lost and is picked up by a small town sheriff (Michael Apted). From that moment on Freddie is very different from what he is used to. He learns the way of the law, learns to walk and talk. He also learns to be a little bit rough and a little bit tough. As a boy he was very ill and he got angry easily. He was an uncontrollable troublemaker. One day he meets a girl named Jennie and he realizes that he is in love with her. But they were separated when Freddie went away to school. They are now friends and their relationship is very touching. Also there are many funny moments. There are also many touching scenes. Freddie learns that the best way to deal with problems is to never give up on life and live it to the fullest. Also there are many great songs in this movie. It has been called a sad movie but I think that it is a beautiful movie. I think it is very well done and it really makes you feel for Freddie. The music and the actors were very good. I give this movie a 10/10.

What can you say about a movie that is as real as it is very funny,and not pretentious. The lead actor was excellent in a "so bad it's good" sort of way. We laughed at the ridiculous situations the actors had to deal with,and at the pretentious nature of the director's goal. I thoroughly enjoyed it.

A great movie from the director of the fantastic "Fade to Black" and "Black Swan". I was riveted the entire time and would recommend this movie to anyone who has ever suffered from a bad break-up and is looking for an interesting drama. I loved this movie.

I really enjoyed this film and would love to see more movies from this director. This is the first film of a film cycle that I have seen of any of the directors. If you liked this you should definitely check out Park Chan Wook's "Boys Over Flowers" and "Thirst".

This is an unbelievable movie, and it is that way because it's a true story about a mother and daughter that had their lives torn apart by a jealous gay father. I'm sure you are thinking "well that's really sad and sad". I'm not. That's because this story really touches you, and you feel something for the characters in this story. There is something that's happening to these characters that you don't get, and you want them to be okay. I've watched this movie several times and I've yet to fall asleep. It's a great movie. I think all of the cast do a wonderful job in their roles, especially Taylor Lautner and the girl who played the daughter. If you haven't seen this movie, I highly recommend it.

Bethany Hamilton is beautiful, radiant, and immensely talented. Her performance in this film is a masterpiece. I highly recommend this movie for anyone looking for a fantastic film about the lives of a young woman and her siblings, and the women of the South. The stories in this film are very real and relatable, and it is impossible to not feel a part of them. The performances in this film are fantastic, but the true beauty of the film comes from the production. The music is beautiful and the film itself is a beautiful experience. This film is a must see for everyone, because it is a great film about the people of the South and their wonderful music. I highly recommend this film, and I hope that you all see it. 9/10

I never get bored of watching this movie. It's like a really good song from a great artist. This movie is perfect for a holiday with a friend or with a significant other. If you're looking for a movie that's going to be great for the whole family to enjoy and you're not afraid to share a laugh with your family or close friends then check out this movie! I love that the film makes fun of a lot of the things we think of as normal in life. Like the high school fights and all the crap that is pushed around on TV. This film has that same energy that you get when you're in the middle of a fight with your friends and you want to get away from it but you can't. I think that this movie is very suitable for any time of the year. But it's also suitable for anyone who is looking for something to make them laugh or who just likes a good film to watch. So watch this film and find out what I mean by that.

I love this film. I think the first time I watched it was when I was in school. The second time was a year later when I was in university. Now, I'm 20 years old and I've just watched it again. The music, the characters, the stories and the scenes are all perfect. It's not a movie I watch once a year, but I can watch it every few days. I think this is a film that has to be watched, even if it's just once every few days. I don't know if the story is different than the one that I read, but I'm sure it is. It's about two women who had to move from New York City to California and then back to New York City, with a reason. When they started off they had no friends, but their friendship grew when they met each other. But when they moved they had no friends, but their friendship grew again when they met each other again. So, when they met a fourth time, they met a fifth time. What is the purpose of the fifth and sixth times? What happens to the one who didn't go back to the beginning? What is the purpose of moving to New York City and then moving back to New York City? What's the reason?
