A pleasant surprise reminding me of Bergman, and a borderline Smith
20 December 2016 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I was simply stupefied by the hatred negative reviews of those who feel entitled to believe that movie should be acted, written, made up in their own way.

Sure, Collateral Beauty is not. It is a pleasant surprise to me, but a disillusion for sure to those leaving the movie theatre still asking themselves what that "Collateral Beauty" is all about.

Too late, guys, try it again in another life, if any.

For all the others with a touching sense of "being", please go, and enjoy... acting emotions photography expressions truth. (Although, yes, some personal truths in the characters' drama are less convincing than others...)
