Living Out Loud

Overview

New Line presents Living Out Loud in a lovely 2.35:1 aspect ratio with Dolby Digital 5.1 or Stereo Surround Sound. Writer/director Richard LaGravenese sets the tone with a thoughtful, wide-ranging commentary, in which he discusses the ideas of the movie more than the techniques of bringing a story to life. As a writer of rich and textured stories (such as The Fisher King), he takes the audience from his initial theme of loneliness and disconnection by achieving a balance between visual image and language.

Overview

New Line presents Living Out Loud in a lovely 2.35:1 aspect ratio with Dolby Digital 5.1 or Stereo Surround Sound. Writer/director Richard LaGravenese sets the tone with a thoughtful, wide-ranging commentary, in which he discusses the ideas of the movie more than the techniques of bringing a story to life. As a writer of rich and textured stories (such as The Fisher King), he takes the audience from his initial theme of loneliness and disconnection by achieving a balance between visual image and language. Though his comments may be mostly of interest to writers or aspiring screenwriters, his conversation pertains to the human struggle in general. The second audio track contains the two Anton Chekhov short stories that inspired LaGravenese while he was working on the script, The Kiss and Misery. The "Deleted Scenes" section includes five clips, the best being Queen Latifah performing the jazz classic "Lush Life." Both generous and intelligent, this set of extras deepens the experience of this character drama.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide
Richard LaGravenese's directorial debut is the sort of film most screenwriters dream of getting the chance to write, much less direct. Emphasizing the interior lives of its characters and using techniques unique to filmmaking to convey the evolution of each, its modest ambitions lead to highly memorable results. A scene in which Holly Hunter reconciles herself to her past and future while dancing in a bar loses power in any attempt to describe it, but on the screen provides a knockout moment. When screenwriters turn filmmakers, the first instinct is usually to rely on an excess of words to tell the story, a trap that LaGravenese -- though certainly no slouch when it comes to memorable dialogue -- skillfully avoids. Of course, the writer/director's good instincts would be nothing without the universally excellent cast he assembled. Holly Hunter, Danny De Vito, and Queen Latifah all turn in powerfully understated performances perfectly suited to a film that never takes the easy way out and never relies on pat resolutions. When the term "slice of life" gets thrown around, it's this film that should be the reference point.
