Fifth about The Seventh

3 Generations

3 Generations: the issue tackled by Gaby Dellal as she tells this story is emotionally complex; one can only hope that, as the tricky uncharted waters are navigated, that people won’t get hurt much. The film, however, dilutes it by mixing other unrelated subjects, forcing a comedic tone, and finding a too pat, convenient resolution. Acting is OK but far from remarkable: Susan Sarandon’s grumpy sarcasm is fine, but misplaced; Naomi Watts projects well the doubts and pains of her character; Elle Fanning is very convincing in her awkwardness and anger over the situation. The film has an indie look all over it, with cutesy locations and costumes; cinematography is just serviceable.
