The price of pain

The Benefactor is let down by not being sure what type of film it wants to be.

Is it a tour de force by Richard Gere, a multi millionaire whose life is falling apart as he is wrapped by guilt as his actions caused the death of his friends in an automobile accident and then consumed by painkiller addiction or a man who seeks to meddle with the offspring of the people who died in the accident. A kind of a sinister Kriss Kringle who has designs on either the now grown up daughter or her surgeon husband.

Gere as Franny Watts is convincing as the well to do but disabled rich guy lost in addiction but surely a millionaire who is in need of morphine would be able to get hold of it if he really needed it?

Despite an earnest performance by Gere the film just does not know where to go.

No Real Benefit To This One

A very slow moving picture with a rather predictable story-line.

Richard Gere gets to play a quirky eccentric rich man who has his own demons to deal with and tries to make others happy by giving of his money and manipulation.

Dakota Fanning is a solid young actor who has a great career ahead of her but needs to steer clear of this type of movie. This did nothing good for her even if all she got was to work with Richard Gere.

Theo James is a mostly TV actor who I have never seen before but he carried his weight in this one well and was not overwhelmed by Gere and Fanning.

I was surprised by this..

A philanthropist meddles in the lives of newly-married couples in an attempt to relive his past. The Benefactor packs one of Richard Gere's best performances in years and basically since 2009's Hachiko as for Dakota Fanning and Theo James their both great as well and the story had a lot of heart in it i won't spoil what exactly happens or who basically dies but if you are patient and understand that this is a slow drama you won't be disappointed, Gere was fantastic and the movie had a lot of depth in it and i totally recommend you to check it out in the near future is nowhere near as bad as the reviews were saying and i'm gonna give it an 8/10
