When a biological warfare strikes and spreads across the world, we  are introduced to three American couples and the people around them, as the deadly virus makes its way to them.

Equipped with an interesting premise and a stellar ensemble cast, ‘Parts Per Billion’ unfortunately fails to deliver in its writing.  With dialogue that seems so trivial and random that it seems like the actors were ad libbing or filmed without their knowledge in between takes.  Director and writer, , clearly tries to make the audience care and thus sympathize with the characters, by trying to depict their everyday lives as something meaningful than it really is.  However, it’s hard to bond or care about the characters when their dialogue sounds like it’s been written by some self-absorbed, hipster teenagers that are still naively ignorant about the real importance of the world.

The film’s saving grace would have to be their cast, which includes:  , The Notebook’s  (from Gossip Girl fame) and particularly stunningly heartfelt performances by  and .

The other stand out aspect of the film was the natural and realistic styling and make-up of the actors, particularly of the actresses who seemed to be for the most part, bare-skinned.  So often are actresses too overdone in the make-up room that it brings down the realism of what we’re watching on screen.  In a story such as this, it’s nice to see the characters actually looking like real people, it’s just a shame they don’t seem to speak or react in the same way.

Reese Witherspoon and Colin Firth star in the “based on a true story” drama, ‘Devil’s Knot’.

Set in West Memphis, Arkansas, the story follows the trial of three young men accused of the brutal murder of three boys in a tightly religious town.

As the child victims were killed in a way which resembled a satanic ritual, the accused were targeted because of their involvement and interest in Satanism.  Police and detective work on the case was somewhat forfeited in order to further persecute the young men.

Colin Firth plays Ron Lax, a private investigator who seems to be one of the few people who believe in the young men’s innocence and tries to seek the truth behind the murders.

Reese Witherspoon plays Pam Dobbs, the grieving mother of one of the boys who was murdered.  As Pam watches the trials of the accused, she starts to also question who the real killers are.

A well acted and scripted film that leaves you wanting more.  A tragic story that plays out brilliantly as a disturbing mystery drama.

8/10
