The Tearsmith 2024 Movie Review

I didn’t read the book so I don’t know if it’s a good adaptation but as a movie it’s.. mediocre. A shallow drama.

First though, let me just praise the leads. They really sell the chemistry for their characters. The longing and all that. Bonus that both are handsome people.

Now for the bad. The plot… while I was interested in the premise as I thought it had potential for depth it only gave me something shallow. They didn’t give time for the trauma of their past to take root so it hits different. Would’ve been so much better if they really dug into the abuse, mental health issues, ptsd etc but everything got glossed over even during the scenes it’s highlighted.

While I liked the base chemistry of the actors the actual romance between the them is non existent. They never built it up so it’s just there. Very weak foundation is just not good. Because why should I care about these character’s love for each other?

The most atrocious is the pacing… there’s very bizarre cuts of time that forces you to fill it in yourself because they jumped over it so you’re noticably missing chunks of scenes.

Shout out too for that bad insert of Olivia’s song that was so out of place and the cringe acting for some of the actors.

Anyway overall this reminds me a lot of Royalteen… which to both would have been better as a limited series of sort to really delve into the characters’ struggles, why they act they way they do, so you can actually empathize with them while the romance is a B-plot to create that slow burn. But alas this wasn’t it.
