Movie Review: Jersey Boys

09:00


Directed by Clint Eastwood, Jersey Boys tells the story of Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons, how they began, how they became the four seasons and the lows too.

I've never seen this musical live but always wanted too, so I'm glad it was brought to screen by Clint Eastwood. His directing is very good, and you will notice the colours in the movie change, being quite darkly edited in the beginning and then lighter during the highlights. I really liked this technique, as it added to the feel of the film without being too distracting.

The acting in the movie is also very good. Eastwood decided to not use Hollywood actors but instead actors who played the roles in Broadway. I think this choice really worked as you don't need big actors to play the roles. The four clicked together and the chemistry was really nice to see.

Overall, I'd say give this a watch. The music is great and will want to get you singing, it's not overly musical stereotypes - music is sung where needed. The directing is good and it will definitely keep you entertained.
