Here’s an excerpt from FreshFiction’s full review by Courtney Howard which you can find here.
Bezucha, who, similar to Joel Schumacher, spring-boarded from fashion into filmmaking, has done fairly well so far exploring different facets of the romcom genre. After his directorial debut BIG EDEN, he made a splash with THE FAMILY STONE, which centered on one tight-knit family’s holiday hijinks and balanced heart and humor adeptly. His follow-up feature MONTE CARLO took what appeared to be a superficial Selena Gomez vehicle and made it into a charming, empowering romcom about a young woman not solely chasing after a cute boy, but finding herself in the process. So it’s fascinating to see what he’s done in the grief-revenge milieu adapting Watson’s stinging novel into a bone dry, blistering drama. Yet he’s in a little over his head fashioning anything unique out of the material, which in his hands is tonally unwieldy and unforgiving.
