Movie Review: Tapestry 2019
As a movie critic, I had the pleasure of watching the film Tapestry. The movie was directed by Ken Kushner and starred Stephen Baldwin, Tina Louise, and Burt Young among others. It is a drama that explores themes of love, forgiveness, redemption, and self-discovery.
The plot revolves around a successful businessman named Gavin Nichols (Stephen Baldwin) who seems to have it all. However, his perfect life falls apart when he discovers that he has an incurable illness. In his search for meaning and purpose in life before he dies, Gavin embarks on a journey of self-discovery that leads him to confront his past mistakes and try to make amends with those he has wronged.
The acting in Tapestry was compelling from start to finish. Stephen Baldwin delivered a fantastic performance as Gavin Nichols. He portrayed the character’s inner turmoil and vulnerability perfectly while also showing glimpses of his selfishness at times.
Tina Louise was equally impressive as Walter’s eccentric sister Peggy Wilson who struggles with her own demons but eventually finds solace in her brother’s company. Her character added an element of humor to the story without overshadowing its serious tone.
Burt Young played Walter King – Gavin’s cab driver turned mentor who helps him see life differently through their insightful conversations during their taxi rides together. His performance was spot on making us feel empathy for him throughout the film.
Aside from acting which took center stage in this film,Ken Kushner did an excellent job with direction showcasing beautiful cinematography coupled with soulful music which helped evoke emotions throughout this poignant narrative leaving its audience feeling invested until its end credits roll out.
One minor issue I had with Tapestry is that it felt slow-paced at times especially when focusing on certain characters or events that did not necessarily add much to the overall story development thereby stretching its 98 minutes runtime more than necessary
In conclusion,Tapestry is a masterful piece of filmmaking making audiences feel a lot of different emotions especially towards the end. It reminds us of the importance of living life fully and not taking anything for granted. It is a must-watch for those who appreciate elegant storytelling that moves them emotionally. Despite its slow-paced moments, it is a film that will linger in your mind long after you have watched it.
