The latest flick of the Russo brothers comes in the form of Cherry fronted by Tom Holland who happens to have a history with the directing duo as they have worked together in Avengers Infinity War and Avengers Endgame for the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The Russo Brothers who have also directed Captain America The Winter Soldier and Captain America Civil War announced some years ago that they will be joining hands with some Marvel actors for their future films.
Well, they were not lying as last year we all witnessed the biggest Netflix film “Extraction” shatter all records of streaming. The film was directed by Sam Hargrave a former Marvel Cinematic Universe stunt co-ordinator and penned by the Russo brothers former directors of Marvel Cinematic Universe. The film also starred Marvel alum, Chris Hemsworth, in the lead role.
This year Russo brothers stepped up to the directing seat in order to adapt the book into a feature film starring our current Marvel Cinematic Universe web-slinger Tom Holland.
The film is divided into some parts with an epilogue and prologue just like the book. The epilogue depicts Tom’s character running out of his house to rob a bank as it was a financial emergency. Then starts the parts in chronological order where he falls in love with a young girl and they happen to be living a good life until the girl decides that she is moving out of town to enroll herself in a new college.
This shatters him and eventually leads him to join the army where he sustains heavy trauma by witnessing the horrors of the war and the loss of his friends. He comes home back because his girlfriend decides to come back only to find out he has PTSD. The lovebirds start doing some serious ecstasy as both of them are a complete mess and just can’t hold each other together.
They run out of money to buy ecstasy and pay the debt which compels him to rob banks and one day he surrenders to the police. He spends 14 years in prison only to come out a better and happy man to his girlfriend.
The movie maintains an emotionally scintillating soundtrack throughout film with some comedy scenes in all parts no matter how intense those scenes are and the ending is just relievingly heartwarming.
