Watch The Go-Getter - Alternative Versions.
I attended the world premiere of "The Go-Getter" at the 2007 Sundance
Film Festival. I'm not quite sure why, but this year's lineup seems to
be heavy on heavy. I like a dark, moody melodrama as much as anybody,
but whatever happened to the good old-fashioned road movie? I found the
answer with "The Go-Getter." This film is all that and more. One part
sweet love story, one part romantic comedy, and one part coming-of-age
tale, "The Go-Getter" takes it all on the road and drives home a
winning combination that will leave you smiling.
Lou Taylor Pucci (Mercer) is a good kid, but one day he decides to
chuck his bike and steal a car. I don't like to post spoilers, so I
won't divulge more details other than to say that the trip on which he
embarks will take him on a journey that would make "Priscilla, Queen of
the Desert" blush.
Like any good road movie, he encounters one motley crew after another,
a cast of characters all of whom get him just one step closer to the
goal he seeks. But like a treasure hunt whose map takes him to places
enticing enough to have him abandon his quest, he needs to keep his
wandering eye on the prize. And oh, the temptresses who cause that eye
Jena Malone is Joely, a sultry vixen (quite the change for Ms. Malone)
who is determined to pop Mercer's cherry. What a breath of fresh air to
see this versatile young actress take on such an empowering role.
Women's Lib ain't over yet. Zooey Deschanel is Kate. It's her car he
stole. And she is determined to get it back -- or is she? The "indie
darling" gets her chance to shine here, and the tension that builds
towards a possible reunion of car and owner holds this story together
like a rope ties down a trunk when the lock is broken. We're never
quite sure if it'll hold.
And Lou Taylor Pucci has never been better in his role as the
determined yet naive youth whose trusting nature and sense of wonder
left me wanting to roll back the years to a time when everything was
fresh and new. Pucci's sense of comedic timing and natural delivery is
second to none, and while some of his dialog was indeed improvised, I
was shocked to learn that the scenes which felt the most unscripted
were, in fact, from the pen of writer/director Martin Hynes.
In the Q&A after the screening here, I was fascinated to hear that a
deliberate attempt was made to cast against type. As each of the three
leads has a rabid following, Hynes' script was meant to give each
actor's fan base something they had never seen before: Malone as Woman,
Deschanel as glamour girl, and Pucci as, well, he got his hair cut,
anyway. Hope and Crosby must be smiling at this winning team.
M. Ward wrote the score, with original songs that left me wanting more.
Licensing source material is pricey for an indie, but who needs hit
singles when you have someone as talented as this brilliant composer?
What a coup to bring him into this project. Byron Shah shot two films
here at Sundance, "An American Crime" (which I saw as well) and "The
Go-Getter." That alone says a lot about his eye for capturing this kind
of character-driven story so well. Between Shah's photography, David
Birdsell's editing, and Hynes' talent for allowing his actors to tell
the story, "The Go-Getter" never wanders into pretentious indie
territory. It stays accessible, which is why audiences will embrace
this film wholeheartedly.
"The Go-Getter" gets it right. It's warm and funny and sweet, and at
this festival of doom and gloom, what a joy it was to travel down this
