All The Real Girls
This is the second feature from critically acclaimed director David Gordon Green (George Washington) and it is so much like real life it may turn off people who are used to seeing typical Hollywood screen romances. Paul Schneider has been through all of the girls in his small, depressed North Carolina town. Zooey Deschanel is a novice at love who makes Schneider want to be better; then she breaks his heart. But by the time they get to that moment of truth, you'll have been through so many strange romantic moments, non-sequiturs, silences and goofy inside jokes you 'll think you've fallen upon someone's really embarrassing diary. All of these throwaway moments and all the things that other filmmakers might edit out, are what makes this odd, but charming little film deserve all the love that its characters seem to be searching for.
