Wilson is a film that is gritty, harsh but it speaks a lot of truth too
I really like Woody Harrelson. I have seen him play all kinds of roles in tons of films. He was amazing in Kingpin, Zombieland and both Now You See Me films. He is an actor who has played a lot of different roles and he is always willing to try new ones. In his newest film Wilson, he plays a character that stands apart from all of the rest. I was able to see it early and here is what I thought of it.
You can read the plot for Wilson here:
Woody Harrelson stars as Wilson, a lonely, neurotic and hilariously honest middle-aged misanthrope who reunites with his estranged wife (Laura Dern) and gets a shot at happiness when he learns he has a teenage daughter (Isabella Amara) he has never met. In his uniquely outrageous and slightly twisted way, he sets out to connect with her.
Wilson is a decent film. It takes a simple character and tackles some interesting modern issues. His character loves to point out how technology has hurt relations with people to the extent that they would rather listen to music or be on a laptop than have a simple conversation with someone. He is a simple man who has his head in the clouds sometimes but it is hard not to feel for him. Even when things get bad he still does his best to try to have a positive attitude on life.

Wilson gets 5/10. There is a lot of dark comedy here, but it drew a few laughs from me. The film also has plenty of dramatic moments to balance the story out. The plot is not really strong, but it has some good moments. It is not his best film, but some people will like it.
