A person rekindles his relationship together with his former wife, which will not sit well with yet another woman who's obsessed with him or her. A recovering alcoholic college or university professor trying to put the life back together meets a seductive new student. The girl offers him a sensuous escape from reality until he realizes she might be insane.
We Belong Together, like most “That woman is actually crazy! ” films, does not make said woman problematic figure but more so some sort of generic replica of exactly what you’re already familiar with. 26-year-old Tracy has just got away from jail and enrolled at a college in Los Angeles, perhaps Sacramento, for reasons unfamiliar. We’re never told her key or interest, just that this lady ends up in a Mythology glass ran by a Mr. Thomas Lewis.
Someone who just recently obtained off a sabbatical this individual took due to his life falling apart. Yet, with him sober now and mending the relationships he demolished, he feels stable and perhaps happy. That’s until Tracy, jealous of the closeness Thomas has with his TA, Leslie, decides she wants him. Thus leading to a series of events you can likely already suppose. Well, outside of the ending, that is a minor change from what we often see.
Initially, I thought this was going to be like Only For One particular Night in, despite the very low expectations for Draya Michele, the bar would be raised. Which, in some ways, it was. But, I must admit, I don’t recognize if it was her acting and how she played off of Whitfield or because of simply how much Stoke plays on her attractiveness which leaves you entranced. For with the way We Belong Together is hit, you come to understand how Betty was seduced.
How, despite his mind saying zero, temptation, over and over, wore along his morals and impression of right and inappropriate until he couldn’t help but give in. Especially considering he was single, likely has not been with someone inside months, maybe over a yr, and it isn’t like the girl had any friends beyond his AA sponsor magnificent TA. Tracy (Draya Michele) trying to invite Thomas to have sex. Initially, I thought this is going to be like Only For One Night in, despite the reduced expectations for Draya Michele, the bar would be raised. That, in some ways, it was.

For with the way All of us Belong Together is hit, you come to understand how Thomas was seduced. How, in spite of his mind saying absolutely no, temptation, over and over, wore along his morals and impression of right and incorrect until he couldn’t help but give in. Especially thinking about he was single, likely hasn’t been with someone in months, maybe over a season, and it isn’t like the girl had any friends past his AA sponsor and his TA. But, as we endeavor into Tracy getting a little bit crazy, that is when Michele is apparently pushing herself past just where she is as an actress.
That isn’t to say she cannot play crazy, the way the woman eyes look in some views may give you pause, however between her dialog, typically the performance, and the story?
There is a strong vibe that when this specific film was made, they should have got followed the policy regarding “Less is more. ” Critique They Could Have Made Tracy’s Reason For Flipping Out Better The problem with damn near almost all films like this is they generate the woman crazy without adding much, if any, onus on the man. And actually, yes Tracy did rest about quite a few things, nevertheless there were multiple warning signs, as noted, that Thomas ignored.
Some of which should have made it crystal clear, if you are going to have sex with this female on the regular, be full-on intimate, you should come right.
Yet, the film doesn’t really allow Tracy to get someone complex and difficult. Her mental illness, as it is often used in films this way, is just a quick and easy means to explain why she is acting the way she does. That and because, I guess, the d*** has been so bomb that she couldn’t allow someone to get in the way of consistent appointments.
All of which seems like such lazy composing, since we see it so frequently, that it takes away from everything Michele was doing that will made this seem like a good role for her.
