Collateral Beauty

{5/5} “Maybe I should play all the parts.”

Collateral Beauty, released in 2016

Howard’s six-year-old daughter died, and now he’s uninterested in life. He plays with dominoes at his marketing company, and he rides his bike against traffic. He writes letters to Love, Time, and Death — after previously having talked about those concepts at work. His colleagues hire actors to portray Love, Time, and Death in an effort to help him.

It’s about dealing with the most horrible thing that could possibly happen. It’s about how you can learn things from anyone if you listen.

The concept of collateral beauty is that even in the darkest of times you can find beauty if you look for it.

It’s a beautiful movie, with bunch of brilliant actors.

Stars Will Smith, Helen Mirren, Keira Knightley, Kate Winslet, Edward Norton, and Naomie Harris. Directed by David Frankel (The Devil Wears Prada). The mostly low-key music is by Theodore Shapiro.
