The Place For The Latest Movie Reviews
A mildly autistic man and a dancer form a friendship that helps them better understand the world that appears to have left them both behind. After crossing paths seemingly by chance, Noah (Michael Worth) and Alexia (Margot Farley) take a journey that forces them both out of their comfort zones and challenges their perceptions of love.
As the film opens we are introduced to Alexia, a stripper by night who seems like a lost soul. The film then shifts to Noah a man that has mild autism. Two very different people living two very different lives, their two cross paths in a diner one day when Alexia decides for a change to eat out. She is intrigued by Noah and even goes as far as following him to what she believes is his home but it's really his doctor's place. As the two begin talking more a friendship begins to form, you can tell that Alexia is looking for something more in life and she is taken in by Noah. Noah on the other hand takes life a day at a time because that's all he really knows, he goes to work every day at a local boxing gym where he cleans, his also likes to ride his bike and box. When Noah tells Alexia that he has to go the mountains where his grandma lives to pick up his mom Alexia decides to offer him a ride there with her frisky friend in tow. Alexia gets to meet Noah's grandma and uncle, life is very simple where they live and it has a certain charm which adds to it's over-all beauty which leaves a lasting effect on Alexia. As the film moves along you begin to wonder if there's a chance that these two could fall in love with each other, that is a question that can only be answered by seeing the film because I'm not going to give away any more details about here so you will have to check it out for yourself to find out.
Right from the start I was engaged in the story and I immediately developed feelings for it's characters. Alexia and Noah are both two lost souls and all you can do is hope for the best for the both of them either together or apart.
"God's Ears" is a special film, it's an honest, realistic love story that delivers many tender moments as well as some very funny ones as well. A heart-felt story that I stayed glued to the entire time. If there's one film you need to see this year "God's Ears" is that film.
Michael Worth not only wrote and directed the film but he also plays Noah. What a terrific filmmaker and actor he is, easily his best film to date and he does such a wonderful jog playing Noah that I felt every emotion that came from him. Worth is not alone though, Margot Farley is amazing as well as Alexia. She is such a beautiful and talented actress that simply lit up the screen every time she appeared. The film's supporting cast were all terrific as well including John Saxon and Tim Thomerson.
Production wise the film looks amazing and the direction is flawless, clocking in at almost 2 hours the film moves at a great pace and by the time the credits began to roll I was left wanting more. I was left wanting to see more of these two very beautiful people and I wanted to watch and be apart of their lives more. Yes, that is what "God's Ears" did for me. I was left thinking about it long after it was over. I felt honored having the chance to see such a wonderful, warm film that pulled at my heart-strings.
An absolute gem that is not to be missed. Do yourself a huge favor and mark down August 21, 2012 on your calender and be sure to own this terrific film when it finally comes to DVD.
