Joblo | 'The Sea of Trees' Review


The Sea of Trees is pretty to look at but tough to swallow; maybe because it's like trying to drink sap. Cloying in an almost Nicholas Sparks-ish way, it's hard to fathom that director Gus Van Sant (Drugstore Cowboy, Elephant) found himself helming a story filled with such treacly contrivances. Even more unfathomable that stars like Matthew McConaughey, Naomi Watts and Ken Watanabe would sign up for the mawkish claptrap.

The story is too old to be commented.
