Shelter Review - AVClub

AVClub: Famous actors playing homeless people is always a tough sell. No matter how committed they may be to the role, it’s hard to suspend disbelief; the disparity between the character’s poverty and the celebrity’s obscene wealth is so pronounced that it continually gets in the way. Richard Gere did an impressive job of inhabiting a lost soul earlier this year in Time Out Of Mind, but his performance still felt vaguely like a stunt, because he looked like Richard Gere, rather than like any actual 65-year-old homeless man you’ve ever seen on the street.

The story is too old to be commented.
