Poor Daniel Radcliffe. The kid is working so hard to shirk off the Harry Potter image (don’t believe me- watch “Kill Your Darlings”) and now here’s another romantic comedy about two people trying to prove that men and women can just be friends. The urge to call it “When Harry Potter Met Sally” is way too strong. Unfortunately he has bigger problems here though.

“Home Is Where the Heart Is” aka “Watercolor Postcards” is the latest work from director Rajeev Dassani. I saw some of his previous work as the Visual Effects Supervisor in 2010‘s “Almost Kings” and was pleasantly surprised with the film. In “Home Is Where the Heart Is” Dassani takes us to a small town in Texas where the guzzling of Budweiser can barely quench the thirst of the dust filled mouths of the locals. This film is a beautifully written drama that will make you appreciate the small things in life; especially human compassion.

“The Giver” is a book I know I had to read in school but little did I know I was going to be smothered in the same story every time I had to review another movie aimed at young adults. Honestly the hardest question this movie brings up is if I had to pick between another movie about romantic vampire teens or teens in love who rebel against dystopian futures, would I rather watch “The Smurfs” instead? The answer is probably so.
