Synopsis:
Oscar nominee Margot Robbie (Once Upon a Time in Hollywood) "is fantastic" in this "dazzling" love story set amidst America's struggle during the Great Depression. Eugene Evans (Finn Cole) dreams of escaping his small Texas town when he discovers wounded, fugitive bank robber Allison Wells (Robbie) hiding closer than he could ever imagine. Torn between claiming the bounty for her capture and his growing attraction to the seductive criminal, nothing is as it seems, and Eugene must make a decision that will forever affect the lives of everyone he's ever loved.

Predictable - Dreamland review by JP

Spoiler Alert
10/05/2021

The best part of this film was the cinematography. There were some beautiful scenes, and the directing was good. Unfortunately, the acting was let down by the predictable Bonnie and Clyde type story. Margot Robbie was quite good as a gun-slinging moll.

A good 'vintage' thriller that is too predictable - Dreamland review by Philip in Paradiso

Spoiler Alert
14/06/2021

This thriller is set in 1930s Texas. Everything is reconstituted exceedingly well and feels very real. The acting is excellent, including that of Margot Robbie, the lead female character. (Darby Camp, in the role of the little girl, is amazing.) It is a kind of Bonnie and Clyde story of a kind that we are all familiar with.

It is a good movie and an entertaining one, and the storyline is well put together. But something is missing. It is hard to tell what, precisely. Ultimately, it could be in the nature of Allison Wells (Margot Robbie), the central female character, as she somehow lacks depth and complexity. In the last analysis, the story unfolds in a predictable manner, and it fails to surprise us: that is probably the film's key weakness.

The DVD I was sent was configured in such a way that it was impossible to remove the subtitles (in English). I tried for about 25 mins without success, then gave up. This also ruined it for me, as they take up a lot of the screen and prevent you from truly 'entering' the story, reminding you constantly that you are watching a movie... It is easier to tolerate the subtitles when it is a foreign film. I found this extremely annoying. I have never had this problem before with any DVD.

Kind of a strange film, but watchable - Dreamland review by giantrolo

Spoiler Alert
16/06/2021

Nothing much really happened in this film, but it was still quite watchable. At its core, it was a coming-of-age film, where a boy on the cusp of manhood gets entwined with a criminal on the run. There are some quite beautiful shots in the film, but also some mighty unusual shots (like the scene in the motel bathroom - we kept wanting the camera to pan right a bit!). All in all, we enjoyed the film, but not sure if we would really recommend it.
