Rating: 3.5/5 Stars
While searching for the meaning of his existence, Ben Layten (Thomas Middleditch) uncovers a family secret that leads him to a woman named Hanna… But when he and Hanna (Jess Weixler) inadvertently fall in love, his life becomes increasingly and strangely complicated. Ben starts to realize that everything is amazingly and incredibly connected – and that the world might just be more inexplicable than he ever imagined.
Pain and love are contrasting feelings. Love can make you feel wonderful. Love can make you feel spirits from another world. Pain also can make you feel spirits from another world, but bad ones. Pain can make you feel miserable and weak. “Entanglement” is a film that touches on both these contrasting feelings.
Ben is the star of this film. Ben is a tortured soul longing to feel affection. After divorcing his wife, Ben feels like something is missing from his life and his life doesn’t serve a purpose in the world. This film follows Ben as he searches for his purpose. Not only does he search for his purpose, but he also embarks on a mission to rebuild his life.
This film has a dramatic feel. It’s a comedy at heart, but disguised under a serious message. Hope is a continuous theme. Hope that things will always get better and it doesn’t matter how bad things get. It takes courage to survive pain. Ultimately, courage is the only thing that can support hope.
“Entanglement” is a good film. The acting is good, but the storyline is better. Pain, lost, confusion and depression can stimulate illusion. Is everything as you see it? Do things feel the way they make you feel? Can you survive those emotions?
I really like this film. This film has substance. It serves a purpose. That purpose simply states that everything will be ok. Things will be ok once you truly let go of pain and embrace. Love conquers all. Love is life, life is love and all is well if you would only believe.
