Based on Tim Realbuto’s critically acclaimed Off-Broadway play, YES tells the story of washed up child star Patrick Nolan who decides to mentor 17-year-old Jeremiah Rosenhaft. What begins as an innocent acting lesson turns into something much more intimate between two surprisingly common minds.
I went into this film not knowing what it was, what it was about and ready to move on if it did not engage. What I found was a profoundly moving exploration of life, loss and the devastating effects it can have, but above all the pursuit to make sense of it all through whatever means, in this case an acting class. The acting is sublime, there are moments of such intensity it takes one’s breath away, the directing never obtrusive but compelling, a masterclass of how to transpose a theater play to the screen. This film deserved recognition from the Oscars, Golden Globes etc., yes, it’s that good…. but then perhaps there are works of art that are even too good, and personal, for such recognition. Thank you to all involved.
