Review: Together


Title: Together
MPAA Rating: R
Director: Stephen Daldry, Justin Martin
Starring: James McAvoy, Sharon Horgan. Samuel Logan
Runtime: 1 hr 32 mins

What It Is: He (McVoy) was a boy and She (Horgan) was a girl can I make it any more obvious. They were in love that’s how it goes but she had a problem with his politics. That of course was only the beginning of the issues for these two. A formerly in love married couple is forced into dealing with one and other as a COVID-19 lockdown pretty much forces them to. Things begin to further unravel as the quarantining rages on.

What We Think: This is a movie that would probably work better as a play. Almost like a David Mamet production to be sure. Having only three characters is an excellent way to work around the whole pandemic raging on during the filming. McAvoy and Horgan have great chemistry and it really elevates the film. Where the film gets lost is within itself. The script lets them breath but to the extent that it all sort of doesn’t work. Around half way the whole thing feels like its been on longer then it actually has. That’s mostly down to Daldry and Martin. Too many scenes linger a bit too long. Too many strings of dialogue suffer from a lack of clarity.

Our Grade: C+, This is a film you can surely check out if you want to. I think most audiences will find this to have a sort of realism that lends itself to a watch. It tackles the realities of the world we live in with the correct amount of difficulty. What’s happening and been happening in our world over the last 18 months is something none of us expected. None of us could’ve predicted it. This film grabs on to that fact. It runs with it and shows us the reality of how important our relationships are.
