As Charlie approaches his inevitable fate, his friends Liz (a cynical atheist nurse) and Elder Thomas (a promising young Mormon missionary) try to find something in Charlie, a will to be saved, both physically and mentally.
However, only his estranged daughter Ellie, who is bitter, hateful and covered in thorns, is the only way Charlie can see a future beyond his current state of despair, where Charlie finds one last chance for redemption, maybe even a glimmer of hope. .
The film received many positive reviews:
“Daily Telegraph”: The choice of Fisher to star in this film is very moving, partly because we can still recognize the beloved character under the thick fat, but also because Fisher’s own performance is not In Beau Sympathy, his Charlie is complex, imperfect, funny and completely human, a completely complete character in many ways.
Vanity Fair: What could have been a sad, thoughtful study of a lonely man wrestling with his past loses his love and poise.
Variety: Much of the film is not as good as Brendan Fraser’s performance, but it deserves to be seen.
“Time”: Sometimes an actor can help minimize a director’s weakness, which is true of Fisher in this film.
The Playlist: An exciting study of a broken man overwhelmed by nine years of self-sacrifice, it underlines a rare, profound compassion, played by Fisher. He has recovered a little.
Collider: The film is deadpan, gimmicky, calculated, and its lessons are too simple. Charlie is a corpse most of the time – he has a kindness to him, but basically the character is responding to other people’s needs.
Slashfilm: Brendan Fraser is arguably the biggest strength of Aronofsky’s otherwise unoriginal Behemoth.
