Mystified as to why this scores so highly

I watched this on the basis of the good reviews here and elsewhere. Unfortunately I never got into it. None of the characters were particularly likable, apart from perhaps Thomas Haden Church's character. Toni Collette's character seems to have no hesitation in sleeping with most men she either interviews or meets. It just didn't seem real - or does this sort of thing really go on? When things get tough for her she ends up smiling inanely, as if she now doesn't care.

I'm a big fan of slow-moving films, as long as the story is good and the acting is strong. I struggled with this one, as both of these factors were missing for me. I didn't care about any particular character and I just didn't care if she found the missing musician or not. Don't get me wrong: the acting wasn't bad, especially when she finally meets the missing musician, but despite the surprise factor (I won't spoil it) it all falls a bit flat for me.

Looking for Mr Rockstar

Lucky Them stars Toni Collette as veteran music journalist Ellie Klug for a failing Seattle rock magazine whose future might be going online only and she might have no future at all with the publication as she is more interested in partying and flirting with musicians then getting good stories.

Klug goes around the famous alternative rock city looking for new talent such as rising street musician Lucas Stone (Ryan Eggold) who she ends up having a casual relationship with. Her editor forces her to write a story that might save a career with the magazine. Search for missing rock star Matthew Smith who has been missing for a decade after a car wreck. Smith was also her first love when she was young.

Klug hits the road with her wealthy friend Charlie (Thomas Haden Church) who plans to make a documentary film on the search for Matthew Smith.

As a low key road movie, the film is elevated by Haden Church who plays characters like Charlie with effortless ease. The story is slight, Klug is not really that likable, she appears shallow, easily falling for a young charmer.

Still this independent movie filmed in and around Seattle (without showing its famous landmarks) managed to rope in a megastar for a belated cameo appearance.

Lovely

This movie was on my watch-list only because Johnny Depp was in it. It turned out that his character, although whole story rotates about him, shows up for just a few minutes, but instead I was pleasantly surprised with excellent cast. I never saw Toni Collette before, but she was awesome carrying her role and basically whole movie. And if I knew that Ryan Eggold is one of main actors this movie would be on my watch- list even if there was no Johnny Depp.

This is slow and easy emotional drama about rock reporter whose career withers away and who gets assignment to write article about popular musician who went missing decade ago, leaving behind his career and her, his long-term girlfriend. While it was generally accepted that he committed suicide, his body was never found and she has several reasons to believe he is still somewhere out there. Accompanied by another ex-boyfriend, who wants to shot documentary about whole thing, she begins the quest to find him. While searching for answers for her article, in process she explores her own past, her emotions and meaning of own life. At the end she finds not exactly what she was searching for, but what she needed to take back control over her own life and future. This is not cinematographic masterpiece, but it is warm human story in which we can all find parts of ourselves, cause every one of us at least once in our lives had some part of our past dragged along for too long.

7,5/10
