James White

James White – James (Christopher Abbott) is a rather lost young man who is barely making it in New York City, and drinks to forget himself and his problems, including his father, who has just died, and his mother (Cynthia Nixon), who has Stage 4 cancer. The film is about the relationship between James and his mom. The acting by both of the leads is great, especially Cynthia Nixon who captures many of the physical and emotional nuances of the effects of cancer. I also loved the way the film captured the uniqueness of the mother-son relationship. Thumbs up from me for a film that wonderful but rather intense. It doesn’t provide a lot of explanations, but rather you “drop in” on a period in time. I really liked the ending – ambiguous and not at the same time. I never saw this in the theater – it showed up on ITunes and I rented it there. (2015; 3.5 stars)
