Movie Diary 8/18/2014

If I Stay (R.J. Cutler, 2014). Can a high-school cellist (Chloe Grace Moretz) and a neo-punk rocker (Jamie Blackley) find happiness in the series of flashbacks that follow a devastating car accident? If it can happen anywhere, it can happen in Portland. (full review 8/22)

Love is Strange (Ira Sachs, 2014). John Lithgow and Alfred Molina as longtime companions whose Manhattan existence is upended by money and family issues. Sachs continues to work his interesting groove, in a film that strongly calls back to the Leo McCarey classic Make Way for Tomorrow. (full review 9/12)
