Overview and Review of the movie Definetly, Maybe directed and written by Adam Brooks.
Will Hayes, a Manhattan dad in the midst of a divorce attempts to answer his 10 year old daughter, Maya, when she questioned him about his life before marriage. And her past romances. Will said: "Its complicated." Maya, on the other hand wants to know everything about how her parents met and fell in love. Nothing short of, "we met.. and fell in love and decided to start a family." but, the complete detail. Will hopelessly attempts a "PG" version of his story for his daughter ad changes the names so Maya has to guess who he finally married. As Maya puts together the pieces of her dad's romantic puzzle, she begins to understand that love is not so simple or easy. And as Will tells her his tale, Maya helps him to understand that it's definitely never too late to go back...and maybe even possible to find a happy ending.
It's fun. Not exactly that innocent, but it's got a few frank dialogue from the kid which I find really really cute. I had fun with its unique way of story telling. Something new, from the usual. At least, thats what I know. I like the concept, and the actors and actresses did very well. I like the soundtrack as well... and i cried on some parts. im such a crybaby.
