Peter Sollett put on a strong melodramatic Comedy "Be my boyfriend for five minutes", and decided to get a little light (and therefore very cheap) glory. Right to determine trendsetter modern Hollywood as the absolute dominance of political correctness with simultaneous leveling of the values of cinema as of art, it removed the "Right to heritage", in any predictability is competing with despondency, and from instant oblivion picture save only Steve Carell and Michael Shannon performing a secondary role.

As the basis of the plot of "the Right to the legacy" is selected the real case Laurel Hester — officer of new Jersey the early 2000s, fought for the right to transfer his partner (in every sense of the word) in inheritance of state pension. About this case in detail was published in 2007, the year the documentary film, also called the "Right to heritage" and has a big number of festival awards. Therefore, the only reason to justify the appearance of art ginormica, could be radically different vision of Collette that turns the story of Hester and her mistress in narrative contains the abstract humanistic philosophy expressed by the methods of cinematography.

However, the "Right to heritage" as not only devoid of any axiology and morality, in addition to those that can be gleaned from any newspaper articles about gay rights, but even as a literal adaptation of trial protocols and the documentary materials not able to because of the lack of drama (and, in particular, display the inner feelings of the characters), to keep the attention of the beholder. It is, writer Ron Nyswaner (previously wrote such brilliant works as  Philadelphia "Soldier's girl", similar to  the"Right to heritage" at the issues) fills almost two hours of duration no talking about and predictable manipulative techniques designed to justify and substantiate the significant status of the film only by the fact that the heroines are lesbians.

If we imagine that in the place of homosexual couples in  the"Right to heritage" was would heterosexual love duet, with maintaining all the proposed dialogues and legal twists and turns, that "Twilight," "50 shades of grey" and almost any female romance seem monumental work with incredible twists and a sublime love. In other words, this film is not brings no educational components concerning the issue of homophobia, not do honor to real history, presenting them cardboard characters. This tape can be adopted and sung exclusively by ideological leftists, already in the fact of the images of lesbians seeing a socio-cultural breakthrough and the angst.

Peter Sollett is on the path of least resistance and obviously appeals to that selecting the situation "female+female," he has justified any shortcomings of the picture and frankly badly composed script (for example, the conflict as a systemically important component of any film, is missing here in principle). It has already has become a classic for modern society the opposite, or as her also called — positive, discrimination directly affects the sphere of art, not allowing neither the audience nor to accept criticism and to evaluate a conditional "Right to heritage" at the criteria for the artwork. Social policy prevails and determines the value of art, and like is loyal to you were not gays, lesbians and other minorities, it is impossible not to recognize priskorbno this state of Affairs.

The filmmakers don't have made even a minimal effort to give a picture of any distinguishing details. If "Life Adele" at least attracted to hardcore pornography, the "the Right to the legacy of the" not contain sex, romance, no empathy for the characters, or the excitement of a corresponding nature. More entertaining to read articles on the theme of the press than to witness attempts by two very tawdry, not painted badly coiffed lesbians (according that in many films the supporters of same-sex love look Butch and wear hideous baggy clothes, such a vision all of not so far from truth) to change the account number for transfer of pension. Line of passion and of temperamental heroines smooth as the cover of the German autobahn.

The poignancy and beauty, as the latter trumps weak draft, not used creative team. The main roles are played age Julianne Moore and Ellen page, which is more like a teenage boy than a woman. Something about the aesthetics of the possibilities of erotic scenes talk is meaningless. Introduce dynamics in narrative steal the show the main stars of the film Steve Carell, not need presentation and Michael Shannon, proved even the audience at which it external data generate many complaints that he is a great actor. To even more unfortunately the casting Director and writers, Shannon is not only able to make a more interesting and cinogenic a couple of Carell, what are the Moore tandem/page, but and generally looks more suitable and the preferred candidate for the role of sexy and a legal partner of the heroine of Moore than turns extolled here before heaven "lesbianism" in a silly farce.

For whom Peter Sollett removed this mix platitudes and cliches remains a mystery. Of course, Butch, gay girls, look "Right to heritage" with joy fun, but the movie is not be such a small audience. It also the picture in some way harmful for public morality statement that being gay is this "incredible" feature that about it is worthy to make a film. But, in the 21st century filmmaker to draw attention and the surprising enlightened public kissing girls as not just difficult, but it's impossible.

As you know, a beautiful picture of characters that are gay, transgender, from other minorities, focus is not who as sex or emboss a police pension, and emphasize the element of sensuality of the relationship and of radical contradiction with the stupidity of the inhabitants, if such is the case, talking about love. It is about her "Brokeback mountain", "the Girl from Denmark", "Weekend" and"Never wipe tears without gloves." And "Right to heritage" and discreditied art, and introduces the audience to be confused about the significance of such features as sexual orientation. If Collett not wanted nothing more than contact the problem of the legal regulation of civil relations, it turned into a ridiculous failure.

It would seem that new can tell when there's such a touchy subject ? There is that tell... it is necessary to tell all. "Freeheld" a touching story of a struggle between two loving girls for their rights, based on real events. The main character, embodied on the screen an incredible and two different Actresses, the facial features are quite similar with the real prototypes — Laurel Hostel — (a marvelous Julianne Moore) and her girlfriend — Stacey Andre (Shkodra and perky Ellen page). Else will allocate the magnificent Michael Shannon — partner Laurel, he showed the true care and helped the achievement purpose.

Film in the first friendship, love and trust.

Trust to partner, partner and their government. All finely concisely filed, without any delights, love is not has labels and colors — it's just there. All characters are revealed gradually, not forgetting us to surprise. It is a huge plus the picture and its Director from writer.

Just love and be happy. Let somewhere on the shore, where the breeze caresses your face and you're going to find shards from bottles beach.

At the end of the album the real Laurel and Stacy, so not rush off view.

In the movie "All that I have" or"the Right to the legacy" tells the story of Mature women and young girls, who are United, of course, love each friend. In the film covers a range of serious problems: the struggle of minorities for equality, the fight against cancer that relentlessly and unfairly affects people, destroying their body life and control life's injustice in General. It is always interesting to make a movie about people who are struggling and not ready to give up, go to last this story is certainly worthy of that they made it into a movie.

At first it was very hard to get used to Union Mature Julianne Moore and young, with the young girl's face, on which life is still not yet managed to impose age-related traces and isbrandt it hated wrinkles, and Ellen page. Preparing the total abode to combines a long and happy life, suddenly as it is often happen in the coming wave of turmoil and horror of what people who love themselves and don't could. And so the difficult position of Julianne Moore her girls is compounded by a series of problems and combat the disease develops into a massive fight with peace and his conservative and outdated views on love.

I might say that the film just absorbed me and all my attention, but I'm always grateful to the filmmakers who shot a movie, able to bring people to tears to make them imbued with a particular history. The movie in a list of their favorite I'm not will include, but for the emotions that in the end caused me this pattern, a special thank you!
