This critically acclaimed, award-winning Official Selection of South by Southwest 2015 is a grounded romantic dramedy about two strangers who are stuck house sitting together.

Reviews about Life in Color

Very nice

Outstanding. Low key. Real. Well acted. Good story.

a good representation of at least one manifestation of depression

found this on laundry day, struggling to find a decent diversion to worrying about how I could make a 'productive' use of my day once the excuse of a load in the dryer had passed.very clever film. as others have stated, a good representation of at least one manifestation of depression. not sappy Hollywood love story, but somewhat realist, believable one. Life in beige? I think the reviewer doesn't have a lot of personal experience with depression.this was a pleasant surprise… it hit all the right notes for me.

Best film in several decades!

This is one of my all time favorite films. It is funny and truthful and great! Quality is very rare in Hollywood and life in color has quality in spades! It is a precious gem among decades of cinema detritus.

Living in Beige is more like it.

13 reviews--all 5 stars. It is great to have family and friends to "review" and recommend your movie, clearly based on your own life. I don't have an objection, except that the writer, (who also produced, directed, edited, and stars) has realized a singularly unlikeable character. I was depressed through the entire movie, and her performance as a virtually catatonic and--well frankly, bitchy--character, with her unblinking flat affect throughout, did not inspire me to want to even watch to the end--though I did. I just don't think this will resonate with very many people, despite the bounty of 5 star reviews.

Very Pleasent Surprise

At the start I wasn't sure about this flick - but it soon became apparent that there was brilliant acting and a brilliant story line. I loved it and would highly recommend this to those who love a great story with an incredible ending. This is a heart-warming drama very much seeing!

This is a sweet, funny

This is a sweet, funny, thoughtful film about what it means to be happy and how much control we have over whether we are. Beautifully written and perfectly acted: can't wait to see more of Katharine Emmer!

Review: The Power Rangers movie is magical when it stops trying to be cool
Vox
A lot of the movie takes place at night, under the cover of darkness where color doesn't exist — the Yellow Ranger's costume is the hue of dirty gold, rather than a raw egg yolk. And instead of squeaky-clean teens, 2017's Rangers are now troubled, ...
