Film Review - Bleeding Love


“Bleeding Love” tells the story of two very fragile people trying to make sense of their relationship while on a road trip to an unknown destination. The screenplay (by Ruby Caster, making her debut) sets up a troubled dynamic between a father and daughter dealing with the roughness of estrangement, and the production tries to maintain some performance reality with the casting of real-life relatives, Ewan McGregor and Clara McGregor, who are tasked with portraying the strangeness and hostility of an unexpected reunion. “Bleeding Love” finds its rhythm with the stars, who nail occasional moments of behavioral clarity. The movie as a whole doesn’t quite work, finding the material a little too in love with the quirks of small-town America, and director Emma Westenberg (a music video vet) doesn’t trust her performers to communicate the horrors of addiction and abandonment, turning to distracting camerawork to sell such personal distortion.
