Good storyline, wanes towards the end - The Benefactor review by AW

Spoiler Alert

A good storyline, with Richard Gere accidentally causing the death of his two best friends, and then trying to ease his guilt by providing everything he can for their daughter. However, the movie ends somewhat abruptly as if the writer ran out of lines.

Overall, a reasonable watch.

No subtitles - The Benefactor review by DC

Spoiler Alert

I'm sick to death and frustrated at the lack of subtitles in the so called modern independent film. Not everyone is blessed with good hearing. Some of us struggle even with a hearing aid. I use subtitles for every program/film that I watch. I don't get why subtitles are not standard. People who don't need them don't have to suffer them. So why? I repeat why? Are people like myself prejudiced against. I only wish to hear/follow the dialogue. Is that to much to ask?????????
