Becky and I went to see the new Tom Hanks movie Larry Crowne on Friday night in Castle Rock at the AMC Theater. The Fandango website at Larry Crowne describes the movie as follows:
“Once well-respected at his company, Larry Crowne (Tom Hanks) finds himself on the unemployment line after a wave of corporate downsizing. Drowning in debt and unsure of what to do with his life, Larry enrolls in college, where he becomes part of a community of misfits who are all trying to carve out a better future. The possibility of romance enters the picture when Larry meets Mercedes Tainot (Julia Roberts), an instructor who has lost her passion for both teaching and her marriage.”
Larry Crowne is a well done film that deals with real life situations that are facing millions of people today. It focuses on a man, Larry Crowne, who loses his job for no rational reason other than he didn’t go to college.
The plot thickens when he goes back to school and meets his new teacher played by Julia Roberts. She just happens to be unhappily married and going down the path of becoming an alcoholic because her life is miserable. It makes for some interesting dynamics with a number of different characters that show up in Larry’s life and at times it’s a somewhat serious drama while still light-hearted for the most part.
It’s not a great movie, but it was pretty entertaining for the most part. It’s between being a good rental and worth the price of admission. We both leaned toward it being worth the trip because it is very relevant for today and was entertaining.
