She’s In Portland

By skimming the reviews I can see that many people thought that this movie was nothing more than a glorified travel brochure.  I didn’t see it that way at all.  With each new encounter we saw new layers in the main characters revealed and conflicts exposed.  At its heart the film is about our development as people and all of the stops along the way.  In that sense the move is not unlike life.  What I really enjoyed about the movie is that the progression was more subtle than it would be in other films like Sideways.  I very much enjoyed it.
