A man rekindles his relationship with his former wife, which doesn't sit well with another woman who's obsessed with your pet. A recovering alcoholic college professor trying to put his or her life back together meets a seductive new student. She offers him a sensual escape from reality right up until he realizes she may be insane.
We Belong Collectively, like most “That woman is crazy! ” films, doesn’t make said woman a complicated figure but more so some sort of generic replica of exactly what you’re already familiar with. 26-year-old Tracy has just got from jail and enrolled with a college in Los Angeles, possibly Sacramento, for reasons unknown. We’re never told her major or interest, just that the girl ends up in a Mythology wine glass ran by a Mr. Youngsters Lewis.
Someone who just recently got off a sabbatical they took due to his lifestyle falling apart. Yet, with him sober now and mending the relationships he ruined, he feels stable and perchance happy. That’s until Tracy, jealous of the closeness Betty has with his TA, Leslie, decides she wants him or her. Thus leading to a series of activities you can likely already reckon. Well, outside of the ending, which is a minor change from what we usually see.
Initially, I thought this was going to be like Only For One Night in, despite the reduced expectations for Draya Michele, the bar would be raised. Which usually, in some ways, it was. Still, I must admit, I don’t recognize if it was her behaving and how she played down Whitfield or because of the amount Stoke plays on her attractiveness which leaves you enthralled. For with the way We all Belong Together is shot, you come to understand how Jones was seduced.
How, inspite of his mind saying absolutely no, temptation, over and over, wore down his morals and perception of right and completely wrong until he couldn’t support but give in. Especially taking into consideration he was single, likely hasn’t been with someone in months, maybe over a yr, and it isn’t like the girl had any friends above his AA sponsor and his TA. Tracy (Draya Michele) trying to invite Thomas to get sex. Initially, I thought this became going to be like Only For One Night in, despite the reduced expectations for Draya Michele, the bar would be raised. Which often, in some ways, it was. Yet, I must admit, I don’t recognize if it was her acting and how she played off of Whitfield or because of how much Stoke plays on her splendor which leaves you gaping.
For with the way All of us Belong Together is chance, you come to understand how Jones was seduced. How, in spite of his mind saying zero, temptation, over and over, wore straight down his morals and perception of right and incorrect until he couldn’t help but give in. Especially considering he was single, likely has not been with someone within months, maybe over a yr, and it isn’t like the dude had any friends past his AA sponsor great TA. But, as we opportunity into Tracy getting a little bit crazy, that is when Michele is apparently pushing herself past wherever she is as an actress.
That isn’t to say she caint play crazy, the way your ex eyes look in some scenes may give you pause, nevertheless between her dialog, the performance, and the story?
You will find a strong vibe that when this film was made, they should have followed the policy involving “Less is more. ” Complaint They Could Have Made Tracy’s Basis for Flipping Out Better The problem with damn near almost all films like this is they make the woman crazy without getting much, if any, onus on the man. And actually, yes Tracy did lay about quite a few things, but there were multiple warning signs, since noted, that Thomas overlooked.
Some of which should have made it very clear, if you are going to have sex with this female on the regular, be full-on intimate, you should come correct.
Yet, the film will not really allow Tracy to be someone complex and difficult. Her mental illness, as it is often used in films similar to this, is just a quick and easy means to make clear why she is acting how she does. That and since, I guess, the d*** ended up being so bomb that the lady couldn’t allow someone to be in the way of consistent appointments.
All of which seems like such lazy composing, since we see it sometimes, that it takes away from every little thing Michele was doing that will made this seem like a good purpose for her.
