Review of Running On Empty Dreams
Hmmm. That's what I thought when I saw 'Running on empty dreams'
So lets take it from the start.
The script is a little confused.
It's like the writer did not know whether they wanted to write a born again christian movie or a lesbian movie. Don't get me wrong there are born again lesbians, but generally they don't go about saying that being a lesbian is wrong in God's eyes. Or perhaps some do.
And the script vacillates on deciding if Corey is a good husband or a bad one. Again like they couldn't decide what to do with him. One minute he is working pretty hard to pay for his wife's treatment and on the other hand he shows evidence that he does not have a clue who his wife is or what makes her tick
And towards the end of the movie, the mood changed so dramatically, it gives you the impression that some over-editing has been done with something crucial left on the editors cutting floor
The acting was pretty good for the 3 leads. Kathleen Brenner as Sydney is totally convincing in her role. Great actress. Looking forward to more [hopefully with a better script] from her.
Same goes for Rachel Owens who plays Jane in the movie.
There is palpable chemistry between the two actresses and the love scenes were great. These two ladies worked pretty hard and deserve a more ...satisfactory script
Jose Rosete playing Corey did the best anyone could with his character.
The born again lesbian? Let's not go there
