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

Decent acting but doesn't really go anywhere

The Benefactor is a small drama with a decent cast. Sometimes these kind of movies are really engrossing but unfortunately this one although not terrible isn't memorable.

Richard Gere plays a Philanthropist haunted by the death of his friends and wanting to relive his past and make amends at the same time. He therefore sets out to help his friends daughter and her new husband. Although Gere is a good actor his character in this film just comes across as unlikeable. This therefore stops any sympathy you have for him and effectively ends much interest in the film. I thought Theo James did a good job as the husband but Dakota Fanning is woefully under used.

At times this is mildly interesting so it wasn't a complete write off but towards the end it sags badly and the rushed ending is highly unsatisfactory.

Unless you're a huge fan of any of the actors I'd give this one a skip. This probably worth a 5 but I'll up it to a 6 just for the shock scene near the start.
