IGN: Collateral Beauty Review

Recommended Posts

The loss of one's child is the sort of devastating experience no one should have to undergo. David Frankel's Collateral Beauty finds one man, Howard (Will Smith), stuck after the loss of his daughter, unable to pick up the remaining pieces of his life and move on. He becomes silent, refuses to talk even to his friends, and watches as the advertising company he built falls apart due to his lack of input.

While such a setup might cause one to think that the film will be dark and heavy, Collateral Beauty is anything but. It has sad moments, but the glossy look of the film, the at times incongruously upbeat music (from Theodore Shapiro), and the actions of Howard's friends keep the whole train moving. It doesn't go in a good direction, but it keeps moving.
