At first, “All My Life” looks like a typical romantic comedy: Girl and boy meet cute, banter playfully, flirt, go on a fun first date and fall in love during montages set to pop songs.But if you know anything about the Marc Meyers movie starring Jessica Rothe and Harry Shum Jr., you know going in that this is not a rom-com. It’s based on a true story, and all the promo materials spell out that this is a movie about a couple dealing with a serious illness. It’s a drama rather than a comedy, so call it a rom-dram – and if that phrase seems slightly dismissive, it’s appropriate for a movie that plays up the sentimentality and never escapes the feeling that it’s a light look at a heavy subject.That’s not necessarily a bad thing, and “All My Life” is nothing if not pleasant and amiable as it makes its way down the road to heartwarming. It also makes the decision never to become an out-and-out tearjerker, a decision you can appreciate even if you don’t succumb to its charms.The film is based on the true story of Jennifer Carter and Solomon Chau, a young Canadian couple who were engaged to be married in 2015 when he was diagnosed with terminal liver cancer, and who had an accelerated, crowd-funded dream wedding to beat the ticking clock. Rothe (“Happy Death Day”) plays Jenn and Shum (“Crazy Rich Asians”) is Sol, in a fictionalized version of their relationship that retains the significant beats.Also Read: How Lifetime and Hallmark Finally Made the Yuletide Gay With First-Ever LGBTQ Holiday MoviesIn the film, Jenn and Sol meet in a bar, where she’s intimidating and he’s tongue-tied but endearing. They jog in the park, they walk in the rain and they fall in love in what would be typical rom-com fashion if the com part weren’t so dialed-down. The first half-hour of the film is pretty much bliss and silliness, meandering along pleasantly enough while the movie waits for a reason to exist.That reason comes not in the big Thanksgiving dinner or the deliberately cheesy and over-the-top riverside proposal set to Oasis’s “Don’t Look Back in Anger,” but in the diagnosis that follows. Until then, Jenn’s default mode has been a kind of smartass flirtation, Sol’s a nonchalant uncertainty. (He’s very stressed-out at work.) But the cancer strips them of their cheeriness, which gives Rothe and Shum more to work with as actors.Still, Todd Rosenberg’s script would rather find places for inspirational speeches than wallow in the darkness, so Jenn ‘n’ Sol’s large and demographically diverse group of friends go to work funding and throwing a wedding. (The friends include former “SNL” cast member Jay Pharoah and actress-singer Keale Settle, who finds time to belt out both the Cure and Pat Benatar.)Also Read: 'The Prom' Film Review: Ryan Murphy Revisits a Midwest High School for a Musical Lesson in ToleranceThis is a movie where you know each moment of happiness means something bad is about to happen, but then the bad stuff leads to important lessons and the point lies in the happiness. Unlike Meyer’s last movie, “My Friend Dahmer,” there’s nothing morbid about “All My Life,” which always looks for ways to be unabashedly sentimental and proudly uplifting; it tries really hard to take heartbreaking and turn it into heartwarming, a transition that won’t quite come off for many viewers but will likely work for some.Sure, the movie feels a bit out of place in this pretty cynical and dark year in which we live under the constant specter of death. But if it seems crazy to say that a movie about terminal illness could be a diversion in tough times, that might be the point of this rom-dram.Read original story ‘All My Life’ Film Review: Romantic Drama Tries to Turn Heartbreaking Into Heartwarming At TheWrap

A school bus driver who injured 12 children after slamming on the brakes when pupils wouldn't stop ringing the bell has been allowed to keep his licence. Roger Wells, 63, caused children to fall over on his bus when he hit the breaks and came to a halt so severely an upstairs windscreen was cracked when a 12-year-old boy was hurled into it. The driver, with 40 years experience behind the wheel of a bus, lost his temper when somebody on his bus rang the stop bell constantly after he picked up pupils from Uplands Community College in East Sussex to take them home. He told the 98 children on his double decker he would take them back to school if they did not stop ringing the bell. He then slammed the brakes when his threat failed. After performing a U-turn, he drove the bus back to the school. Judge Janet Waddicor ordered him to pay £1600 and handed him ten penalty points - not enough for him to lose his driving licence - after a jury convicted him or careless and inconsiderate driving. "I'm not going to disqualify you", she said. "Had they been serious injuries, no doubt you would have been charged with a more serious offence." A jury at Lewes Crown Court, East Sussex heard Wells had already admitted failing to stop and failing to report an accident to police. Judge Waddicor said: "You were aware of all of these injuries. You ought to have reported it to the police. You have said you were unaware of the obligation. "It surprises me a man who has passed no end of tests and with 40 years experience should be ignorant of that requirement." The judge criticised the school handling of pupil travel. Buses were regularly overcrowded, the judge said. "The school arrangements for boarding the bus were slap dash at best. Somebody ought to be sorting it out sharpish. The parents have repeatedly expressed their concerns to the school," the judge said. Wells, of Wadhurst, was fined £750 and seven penalty points on his licence after a jury found him guilty of careless and inconsiderate driving. He was fined £250 with another three points for failing to report an accident. He was also ordered to pay £600 prosecution costs.
After enduring any number of paid celebrity vacations disguised as feature films (“Couples Retreat,” “Just Go With It,” “Blended,” etc.), it’s edifying to learn that a cast and crew can have a great journey and make a worthwhile film at the same time, as Steven Soderbergh and an impressive ensemble have done with “Let Them All Talk,” filmed almost entirely during a real transatlantic, New York-to-Southampton crossing on the Queen Mary 2.You won’t begrudge Meryl Streep, Candice Bergen, Dianne Wiest, Gemma Chan and Lucas Hedges getting an ocean voyage out of the deal, since this comedy-drama about a blocked novelist having an awkward reunion with old friends is such a witty exploration of relationships and of the responsibility artists have to their muses. It’s “Wild Strawberries” for women of a certain age, and a big improvement over Soderbergh and Streep’s previous collaboration, the disjointed “The Laundromat.”Streep stars as Alice, an acclaimed author. Her agent Karen (Chan) lets her know that everyone’s excited about Alice’s new manuscript, but she not-so-subtly mentions that they hope the book will be a sequel to Alice’s hit Pulitzer-winning novel, which is of course the author’s least favorite of all her titles. When Alice is offered a prestigious British literary prize, Karen arranges for the airplane-averse writer to cross on the Queen Mary 2.Watch Video: 'Let Them All Talk' Trailer: Steven Soderbergh, Meryl Streep Reunite on HBO MaxAlice summons her nephew Tyler (Hedges) to act as her assistant on the trip, and she also invites college chums Roberta (Bergen) and Susan (Wiest) to come along, since they haven’t spent time together in decades. Unbeknownst to Alice, Karen is also on board to keep tabs on her and to find out more about the mysterious manuscript, even enlisting Tyler’s assistance.It’s a straightforward setup, but screenwriter Deborah Eisenberg throws in plenty of little mysteries: What’s behind Roberta’s apparent hostility toward Alice? Who’s the mysterious gentleman Tyler sees coming out of Alice’s suite every morning when he goes to join her for breakfast? And why does mega-popular mystery novelist Kelvin Kranz (Dan Algrant) always seem to be underfoot?The world of literature is a rarefied one, which the film constantly acknowledges — from Tyler’s friends having no idea who his aunt is (despite the fact that her most popular novel became both a film and a miniseries), to Tyler and Alice never having heard of Kelvin Kranz (despite the fact that both Roberta and Susan have devoured dozens of his thrillers).Also Read: 'The Prom' Film Review: Ryan Murphy Revisits a Midwest High School for a Musical Lesson in ToleranceKelvin is a minor character, but his presence allows “Let Them All Talk” to make some amusing jabs at the struggles between art and commerce; for instance, we see Alice check the shelves of the ship’s bookstore, delighted that they carry four of her titles, but then gobsmacked to see a full shelf of Kranz. And when Alice later asks Kelvin — after he has cannily praised the unsuccessful book she holds closest to her heart — “How long does it take to write one of your… novels?” Streep makes that pause just the right length to be both polite and completely condescending.It’s a fascinating performance from Streep, even though Alice is the hardest character to get to know, between the secrets she’s keeping and the hauteur she has developed over the years. (“When did she start talking like that?” wonders Susan.) Even with all the walls the character throws up around her, Streep always lets the audience into the core of this woman, whether she’s relaxing around Tyler or trying to interpret Roberta’s mixed signals.Bergen is clearly having a ball, swanning through the Queen Mary 2 with a big blonde whoosh of Dallas hair and setting her sights on a wealthy older gentleman. There’s a nice bit of symmetry having her play someone whose private life became fodder for her novelist friend, since in “Rich and Famous,” it’s Bergen’s writer character who specializes in romans-à-clef about her Malibu neighbors.Also Read: Steven Soderbergh's 'No Sudden Move' Adds David Harbour, Noah Jupe, Brendan FraserOnce again, Wiest can take what would be a throwaway line in another actress’ mouth and make it the movie’s most memorable quote. And while Hedges and Chan play characters of another generation than their fellow travelers, neither feels like a millennial stereotype.Soderbergh once again pseudonymously acts as his own editor and cinematographer, and the ocean voyage provides an array of light sources for his camera — from the calculated honey-glow of the ship’s common areas, to the bright fluorescents of the galleys and laundries that passengers never see, to the shifting and unpredictable skies over the Mid-Atlantic. It’s an instant addition to the canon of great cruise ship movies, right next to “The Poseidon Adventure” and Godard’s “Film Socialisme.”While “Let Them All Talk” doesn’t quite have the snap of Soderbergh’s “High Flying Bird,” it’s just as much a film of ideas about talent and commerce and the responsibilities of the rich and powerful. And with a cast as talented as this one, the title itself provides a guidepost for how to tell this story.“Let Them All Talk” premieres Dec. 10 on HBOMax.Read original story ‘Let Them All Talk’ Film Review: Meryl Streep Contemplates Life, Love and Literature on Transatlantic Voyage At TheWrap
