Wilson: Blu-ray Review










The Movie:

Wilson (Woody Harrelson)is a lonely, neurotic and hilariously honest middle-aged misanthrope who reunites with his estranged wife (Laura Dern) when he learns he has a teenage daughter (Isabella Amara) he has never met. In his uniquely outrageous and slightly twisted way, he sets out to connect with her.

I’m a big fan of Harrelson and his comedic roles so this movie was definitely one that I was looking forward to watching. I feel like he excels when it comes to comedy because he tends to always bring an offbeat quality to all of his characters. Wilson (the character) and the way that he speaks and acts almost seems like it could be an extension of Harrelson himself and that actually made me enjoy the movie even more so. The plot is comedic but also dramatic which was a bit of a surprise. It really all comes down to a lonely man (that has no filter and no one really likes) just wanting a family or people in general to connect with. I found it sweet but also really heartbreaking at the same time. With that being said the movie is also very funny with Dern and Amara providing fantastic comedic timing and chemistry with Harrelson. The film is a very interesting/entertaining watch and kind of came out of left field for me so it’s because of that that I do suggest checking this out. This seems like it’s one of those hidden gems that people may miss so don’t sleep on this one! 7/10

Special Features:

Deleted Scenes – About 16 minutes of scenes here that don’t really do much for me but are interesting to see what was cut.
