Synopsis


Elizabethtown
A young man in need of a fresh start gets one under highly unexpected circumstances in this emotionally resonant comedy drama from writer and director Cameron Crowe. Drew Baylor (Orlando Bloom) is considered the big success story in his family, having moved away from the small Kentucky town where he was born to California, where he works as a designer for Mercury, the nation's biggest athletic shoe company. But success has begun to elude Drew -- his most recent design was a resounding flop that has cost him his job, and his girlfriend, Ellen (Jessica Biel), has given him his walking papers. Drew is contemplating suicide when he gets word that his father has died, and that he's needed back home in Elizabethtown, KY, to help organize the funeral. With his mother, Hollie (Susan Sarandon), deep in denial about her husband's passing, Drew comes home to discover no one knows about his recent poor fortune, and he's greeted like a conquering hero. As Drew reconnects with his family and helps his sister, Heather (Judy Greer), look after Hollie, Drew gets a new lease on life and is reminded about what's really important to him. Helping him learn these valuable lessons is Claire Colburn (Kirsten Dunst), a pretty and optimistic flight attendant Drew meets on his flight home who has her own philosophies about positive thinking and the curative powers of travel. Elizabethtown also stars Alec Baldwin, Paul Schneider, Bruce McGill, Loudon Wainwright III, and Paula Deen. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

    This is a great movie about dealing with the death of a loved one, that seems to have been overlooked. The movie shows how Drew deals with the death of his father while developing a friendship with this quirky and very friendly girl, Claire. His family tells him about their wishes for the funeral and the town that they lived in has other ideas. In the end, Drew takes his father's cremains on the road trip that they never took as a father and son. It is very healing for someone who is also dealing with the death of a father.

    Being from a city that is mentioned in the movie, I just had to watch this movie. While I was watching the movie I was very entertained overall by the story, but mainly my the music which is a integral string in this movie. The movie was not all that great at the moment, but once I watched it I could not get it out of my mind. That to me is what makes a movie great, not how it makes you feel while you are watching it. But if the movie sticks with you. I immediately bought my own copy and bought both soundtracks for the movie.

    The story seems to lose focus at times, but a very entertaining climatic scene brings everything together. Big names in the cast bring in big time performances. The ordering process was easy and the delivery was very timely. Best Buy did a very good job with notifications regarding my purchase. I couldn't be more satisfied with the service.
