Keith (2008)

Basic Summary – Natalie has it all: yearbook editor, scholarship to college, star athlete, reigning social queen. Then Keith enters her life. Secretive and enigmatic, he slowly lures her from her comfort zone. The more Keith holds back, the more Natalie becomes intrigued with figuring him out. In her head, she’s determined to keep him at arm’s length, but in her heart she can’t resist him. As Natalie’s world slowly unravels, both their lives are changed forever in this powerful love story.

I never knew Jesse McCartney could act, but he is actually pretty good at it. The story is pretty straight forward as plot goes. It is kinda has that Nicholas Sparks feel to it, but thankfully it isn’t a Nicholas Sparks film so there is no hatred I have towards it.

The film itself, is actually really good. I bought this film not sure what I was going to get (Yes it was a “in the moment purchase”) but I don’t have an regret getting it – other that it is on Netflix now so goodbye money. It has that romance portion, but it doesn’t feel like romance for the good majority of it. You could most definitely watch it by yourself, or with friends. But it is kinda slow so you need to have patience getting into it.

The acting is all good. There wasn’t really anyone I didn’t believe. There isn’t much to say about them really at all. All the actors have pretty steady careers now. It wasn’t reviewed by many critics so there isn’t much to go on after viewing, but general consensus is that it was a nice film.

I would check it out. Worth buying for me, but if you aren’t into that, Netflix has it to view.
