I am often criticized for my love of TV, my love of Netflix, and my love of Yancey's movies. These criticisms, however, are not really fair. I'm sure you have noticed that I do not like Yancey's movies and I am a staunch fan of the medium that I watch them. So it would be very hard for me to just sit and say that I love the TV shows. To this end, the Farewell falls into my category of being a throwback to the olden days of TV movies and an homage to Yancey's best work. The Farewell is set in the late 1980's, in the wake of the economic recession, and has a woman named Linda (played by Meryl Streep) who wants to buy an apartment for herself and her daughter. She's forced to rent an apartment from a man named David (played by Tom Hanks) and his wife (played by Julie Hagerty). This is because she's unable to afford the rent, and she believes that David will help her make it. Linda has some problems, and she decides to hire a psychic named Lady MacBeth (played by Sissy Spacek) to help her through her troubles. Lady MacBeth is the most difficult woman to help out of the whole film. Her actions seem almost laughably evil, and she constantly uses her powers to manipulate Linda, to control and manipulate her. After taking out David, she starts to work for an old friend of her son's called Captain Moritz (played by the great Charles Martin Smith), and a psychiatrist named Dr. Walker (played by Richard Dreyfus). These people are the only ones that seem to care about Linda and her son, but the people in the theatre she works at want nothing to do with her. She falls in love with David, and both the way she sees things and the way she does things, cause problems for her. This movie is filled with many moments of intense drama, and I can say that every single scene is done perfectly. It's amazing to see Meryl Streep give such an amazing performance, and to see Julie Hagerty trying to get through a role that seemed out of her range. It's a beautiful movie, and a great flick to see.

I have to admit that this is the first time that I saw this movie. However I was glued to my seat the whole time. It was a bit long for my taste but I loved every minute of it. We are introduced to the two lead characters as they have a meeting in a hotel for their granddaughter's wedding. The old couple is replaced by a stranger who introduces himself as a priest. Soon enough things get really complicated for the young couple as they are in the middle of a divorce. While on a business trip for the church the priest meets a new girl in the church and then on the way to the airport, he is taken by the taxi driver. Suddenly the old couple starts to see each other again and she is willing to go back to the airport to pick him up. What happens next will change the future of the both of them. The writing is very solid, the script is great, and the acting is superb. How can you not love this movie. The story and the story telling are also very good. We see how two people who didn't really know each other all become really close. They start to love each other, they start to trust each other, and it is really heartbreaking at the end. The performance by the lead actress is excellent. She manages to convey all the emotions very well. The last thing I want to mention is the beautiful cinematography. The whole movie is beautiful and each scene is a masterpiece. All in all, this movie is an excellent mix of comedy, drama, and romance. I can not wait to see it again!

Farewell tells the story of the last night before the tragic death of former PM John Howard's wife, Julia, at the age of 65. It focuses on the lives of the various generations of the Howard family, from the prime minister and his wife, to the grandkids and their families. It is a very sad film and tells the story of a family that lost a loved one and then an idea that eventually became reality. The cast includes Eileen Atkins, Frank Whaley, Meryl Streep, Paul Gleeson and Sam Neill. Some of the older generation like Laurie and Alex Howard (Margaret and John Howard) still have the need to be seen as the last surviving members of a powerful family. On the other hand, some of the younger generations like John, David, Anna and Lucy Howard (Alice and Paul) have a different perspective of the Howard's. Both older and younger generations have a sense of pride and power and need to stay in the spotlight. The Howard's finally move out of the Howard's Place and into the new Howard's Manor on the grounds of the Queensland University. It is at this time that John and Alice Howard find out they will never be in the same family again and at that time both families are totally against the idea of divorce. Alex Howard decides to follow his own decision and sign the divorce papers, which was a great turning point for the Howard's family. The Howard's are left without a home and cannot take care of their own children. In a country house on the Howard's estate, Alice Howard's daughter Anna Howard (Ellie Koszlewski) and David Howard (Nicolas Cage) are the only members of the Howard's who still have the support of the rest of the family. It is as if Alex Howard and Alice Howard are the last remaining members of the Howard's and this is what caused the great divide between the Howard's and the rest of the Howard family. The Howard's ultimately found an alternative for their family after Alice Howard's death, which is John Howard's decision to give his final speech to the National Party. As John Howard's speech was given, it was like a whirlwind, the Howard's were all together and was an emotional event to the Howard family. John Howard's death proved to be the catalyst for a great divide among the Howard's. Some of the Howard's like Helen Howard (Rachel Griffiths) or Alice Howard (Margaret Lea) decide that they will stand by John Howard's side, while some like Laurie Howard (Cameron Diaz) and Alex Howard (Sam Neill) want to have the final say. Even though Alex Howard decides that he will be with John Howard's family, he does not want to be part of a family with such a huge and powerful family. It was after John Howard's death that the Howard's realized that they were no longer part of the Howard family, it was after John Howard's death that Alex Howard and Alice Howard decide to leave the Howard's forever.
