A Mouthful of Air Review
Depression isn’t rational, and “A Mouthful of Air’s” finest feature is its refusal to offer a one-size-fits-all explanation for the prevalent, and devastating, ailment. Amy Koppelman’s adaptation of her 2003 novel of the same name follows new mother Julie (Amanda Seyfried), who attempts suicide unsuccessfully just before her child’s first birthday, and subsequently struggles to live with bad thoughts and sensations she can’t escape. This understated drama has a lot of empathy, but it also has a fuzziness that makes it feel like it’s on the outside looking in, which will make it a tough sell when it hits theaters on Oct. 29.
An unexpected pregnancy serves as the impetus for the film’s impending catastrophe, and Seyfried and Wittrock use subtle glances and passive-aggressive comments to convey the developing complexity of Julie and Ethan’s relationship. Despite this, Koppelman rushes through the majority of her plot points, including Julie’s traumatic upbringing,a late squabble over her decision to stop taking her medication after the birth of her second child, and the climactic decades-later revelation about what happened to her — not to mention Carpenter, Paul Giamatti, Britt Robertson, and Josh Hamilton’s roles being reduced to glorified cameos —
The film is too affected to grab at the heartstrings, preferring to insinuate rather than show or tell, and that goes for its many animated sequences from, and dialogues about, Julie’s children’s book, which aim to evoke tears to an alienating degree.
