At The Movies – St. Vincent

2015 At the movies February 2015 Suzanne A. Marshall

By Suzanne A. Marshall from the February 2015 Edition

Starring: Bill Murray, Melissa McCarthy, Naomi Watts

Directed by: Theodore Melfi (and screenplay)

“A young boy whose parents have just divorced finds an unlikely friend and mentor in the misanthropic, bawdy, hedonistic war veteran who lives next door.”

This is a ‘feel good’ movie and who doesn’t want to feel good? Bill Murray and the cast play wonderful roles and I give particular mention to Naomi Watts who is so tarty and funny, as well as the young boy played by Jaeden Lieberher in his role as Oliver; delivered with such innocent seriousness. It’s a cute story with a message and one that all audiences will relate to. You’ll feel good when the movie ends.

Bill Murray has been nominated for both a Golden Globe and Oscar award in this role.
