California Solo

11 Nov


A former Britpop rocker who now works on a farm gets caught driving drunk and faces deportation after living in Los Angeles for many years. His efforts to stay in the U.S. force him to confront the past and current demons in his life. (IMDb)

So, if you watch Once Upon a Time, then you know why I watched this. If you don’t watch Once Upon a Time, I’ll catch you up. Robert Carlyle is on the show, and is one of the reasons to watch it. Coincidentally, he is the lead in this movie. And to be honest, he’s really the only reason to watch this. It’s an interesting character study, and there’s some really great stuff for Carlyle to work with. But, I found it all really slowly paced. It also didn’t give me a reason to care about this person. I finally started caring once we learned more about him, but other than that, something overall was lacking here. Don’t rush to watch this one.
