2017 movie Wilson review. NO SPOILERS. SFW. After reading the review you can decide whether the movie Wilson is worth watching or not.
Movie genre are drama and comedy. The USA movie release date was 24th March, 2017. MPAA rated R. Key actors are Woody Harrelson, Laura Dern, Isabella Amara and Judy Greer. Movie was directed by Craig Johnson. Duration of the movie is 101 minutes.
The 2017 movie Wilson is based on a novel by the same name written by Daniel Clowes. The movie is about how Wilson (played by Woody Harrelson) has to deal with relations and people. Although the official genre of the movie is comedy drama; there is less comedy and more drama. The comedy is based on dialogues and few funny scenes, however the humor is not hilarious. I would rate the comedy in the movie a 5 out of 10. The drama in the movie is quite gripping and it gave me a feeling of sadness and understanding of loneliness. Hence I would say Wilson is a drama movie with a mix of comedy. Notable is the acting of Woody Harrelson. My guess is that he very likely to be nominated for Best actor in Academy Awards for the movie Wilson.
