SKY REVIEWED

“Sky” could be an amazing film. However, it gets stuck somewhere between modern French cinema melodrama and being the Diane Kruger show. While Kruger is a great actress, she meanders so much in a role that has been done to death. What kills me is that the brutality of her attack on her husband gets brushed off too easy. I’m not expecting Scenes from a Marriage, but I want something tonally appropriate.

Norman Reedus leads a strong cast of supporting actors, but even he doesn’t get a ton of time to make Kruger’s second act work. Kruger’s character longs to be free, but she never forms any lasting relationships. So, it feels less of a character choice and more of watching a woman bounce back and forth without direction. That works for some people, but it irritates my efforts to branch out of casual viewing zones. Stream it.

The Plot Thus Far

In this captivating road movie, a French woman finds liberation in the dusty highways, wide open spaces, and smoky barrooms of the great American West. Diane Kruger stars as Romy, a Parisian who, while on vacation in California, breaks things off once and for all with her boorish husband (Gilles Lellouche) in a dramatic final fight. Now a free woman in a strange land, Romy embarks on a life-changing trip through the desert, crossing paths with strangers who impact her life in various ways: a kindly small town police officer (Joshua Jackson), a pregnant, trailer park-dwelling mother (Lena Dunham), and a charming, ruggedly independent cowboy (Norman Reedus) with whom she finds the possibility of new love. Beautifully capturing the landscapes and soul of the Southwest, SKY is a stirring emotional odyssey about what it means to start your life over again.
