Remember Me Movie Review

Windy has been on a world wind. First stop was in New York for the premiere of the film Remember Me, she was the lucky winner to get a chance to cover the Red Carpet event for Popsugar.

Make sure to check out the 3 part series starring Windy herself. In the series they follow her from when she finds out that she was the lucky one picked to cover the event and everything in between to the very final moment when she interviewed Robert Pattinson.

You need to make it a point to stop by her site in the upcoming week to get her point of view of the whole experience.

Minor spoilers

“Remember Me”, directed by Allen Coulter and starring Robert Pattinson, Emilie de Ravin, Pierce Brosnan, Chris Cooper, Lena Olin and Ruby Jerins, is the story of two people who meet, bond and fall in love as they learn about each other’s families’ heartbreaks and tragedies.

The majority of the film is set in New York City in 2001. We follow Tyler Hawkins (Pattinson) as he struggles to keep his family together six years after a tragedy turns their father (Brosnan) into a seemingly unloving and distant person, satisfied with raising his children by providing them with money but without any love.

Pattinson, in his first breakout American film since the “Twilight” franchise, is surprisingly and exceedingly skilled at playing a son and brother who does everything in his power to take care of those around him (since his father won’t) but is miserable and belligerent himself. Often getting in fights, both physical and verbal, Tyler is a damaged person who is severely affected by the family tragedy and its aftermath.

On a dare, Pattinson asks Ally (de Ravin) out to dinner and she sparks a light in him that had been dim for years. Ally herself suffered a family tragedy in 1991 and, as a result, lives with her over protective father (Cooper). During an outburst at home, Ally leaves and stays with Tyler, where they bond quickly and fiercely, particularly given their similar histories.

Pattinson and de Ravin have palpable chemistry as a young couple struggling to grow up while dealing with their familial challenges. Their interactions seem honest and you truly believe Tyler and Ally care for each other as much as they do.

Brosnan, playing Tyler’s father, Charles, is a brutal, uncaring force in the film. His apathy toward his family is so astounding, you wonder why Tyler continues to try to rebuild the bond lost long ago. Not as much for himself, Tyler is driven by his love for his younger sister, Caroline, upon whom he doesn’t wish the same fate as himself. In a dramatic office scene, Brosnan and Pattinson’s characters shout every thought they’d been holding in for 6 years and the result is a pressure-filled moment with intense ferociousness from both men.

Cooper, playing Neil Crag, Ally’s father, is clearly struggling with his tragedy, though Ally seems to have left it behind years ago. Cooper plays a New York City cop who takes out his frustrations on others both on and off the clock. Abusing his power, he tries to pry Tyler and Ally apart as he struggles to keep what he believes is the only part of his family left with him.

Ruby Gerins , at 11 years old, shows early signs of becoming a brilliant actress. She’s endearing as Tyler’s younger sister and you immediately bond with her as a character. Ruby deals with mature subjects in a way that is so far past her age, you can’t help but understand that Ruby herself is mature enough to play a role of such depth at a young age.

Aiden Hall plays Tyler’s roommate, Tate, and is the small bit of comic relief in the film. The film, however, is so emotionally heavy, that even though the audience might need a bit of relief, his presence can sometimes distract from the emotional depth of a scene.

As Tyler thinks, “Ghandi said “ Whatever you do in life will be insignificant,” we ironically learn that everything Tyler does has more significance than anyone realizes. Just as we see signs of Ally’s and Tyler’s families coming around, and as their love is at its peak, the characters must once again face new tragedy.

“Remember Me” is a film that is filled with love, hate, loss, apathy, turmoil and shock. It’s an emotional ride, but one you don’t want to end.
