| A Sad Film That Deals With A Shy Man Dealing With Lost Loves.
"Victor" works in up state New York at a small bar/diner. He is painfully shy, depending to a great extent, on his mother's care and direction. A new waitress, played by Liv Tyler, is hired. Victor is charmed by her kindness and looks. Pruitt Taylor Vince gives a fine performance as "Victor". Shelley Winters plays Dolly, his mother. Debbie Harry is great as Delores, a co-worker who seems to have a chip on her shoulder. This movie tries to provide a meaningful character study and, for the most part, succeeds. I cared for the characters and felt that I knew them well. The problem is that Victor does not progress. He talks very little and I felt that the answers were very slow in coming. It was a frustration sometimes. Even so, Heavy provides us with a film that will stay with you. I gave it a 7 of 10. Good direction by and script by James Mangold. A memorable sound track that fits the film well.
