Movie Review: Juanita 2019
Juanita is a heartwarming and inspiring movie that will take you on an emotional journey. The film follows the story of Juanita, a mother of three who is fed up with her mundane life and decides to leave everything behind for a solo retreat in Montana.
The plot of the movie is compelling and engaging from start to finish. You’ll find yourself rooting for Juanita as she navigates her way through unfamiliar territory, both physically and mentally. Although some of the plot points can be predictable at times, it doesn’t detract from the overall enjoyment of the story.
The acting and characters are also noteworthy in this film. Alfre Woodard delivers an outstanding performance as Juanita, bringing depth and authenticity to her character. The supporting cast is equally strong, providing powerful performances that elevate the film even further.
Direction by Clark Johnson is excellent, effectively bringing out all the emotions from every scene. The score adds an extra layer of sentimentality to each moment throughout the film.
Cinematography plays a key role in capturing Montana’s wide-open spaces’ beauty while highlighting Juanita’s isolation and introspection during her travels.
Production design was also well-executed with authentic rural America scenes supported by special effects where needed most.
Editing was done smoothly ensuring no scenes were drug out therefore keeping audiences engaged throughout this 90-minute drama type production
I enjoyed how Juanita manages to capture moments of sadness mixed with humor throughout its duration – something not easily achieved in dramatic movies but well-executed here accomplishing just how important humor can be in handling grief or difficult situations.
Overall, I found myself moved by this thought-provoking drama that sends viewers on an adventure following someone seeking self-discovery while trying to sort through past mistakes letting go off their fears simultaneously opening herself up for new possibilities regardless if they’re expected or not.
Juanita delivers powerful messages about love lost vs love found—how developing relationships is not just about finding a partner but forgiving ourselves and others for the respective inadequacies that so often hinder our personal growth. The film wonderfully portrays that it’s never too late to start over or chase new dreams in search of happiness, even if it might take some uncomfortable steps out of the comfort zone.
