Orlando Bloom and Kirsten Dunst seems to be at the height of there popularity. What better than to have them star in the same movie? Elizabethtown plays out more to be a drama/romantic movie with some funny moments. Bloom plays Drew Baylor, a failed shoe designer, that is about to kill himself but suddenly gets a call informing him that his father has just died while visiting his hometown. Now, Drew has to go to his father’s hometown, which he has very little affiliation with, to pick up the body and bring it home. During his journey to Elizabethtown he meets a very awkwardly-outgoing-extrovertive girl, Claire (Dunst). I’m going pretty much stop describing the movie here since its very much linear and predictive.

Camereon Crowe is a great director and he tells this story in a way that won’t make you fall alseep. This is one of those movies you go on a date with to watch, other than that just wait till its release on video.

Rating: ★★★★★★½☆☆☆
