My One and Only opens at Shaker Cinemas



My One and Only, a period piece based on the childhood of actor George Hamilton, opens exclusively this weekend at Shaker Cinemas. Here is our review of the film.

My One and Only George Deveraux (Logan Lerman) is a 15-year-old who shows up at a car dealership one day with enough cash to buy a Cadillac. While the salesmen question his ability to make the purchase, it turns out the money’s legit. George lives on New York’s Upper East Side with his wealthy parents Dan (Kevin Bacon) and Ann (Renee Zellweger), and his mother has sent him to buy a car so they can leave their philandering father. So he gets the car and picks up his mother, and they head off to Boston to start their life over, not knowing that they’d wind up traipsing across the country before finally ending up in sunny California. Directed by Richard Loncraine (Wimbledon, Brimstone and Treacle), this period piece that’s based on the childhood experiences of actor George Hamilton captures the many contradictions of 1950s America, where promiscuity often ran rampant despite outward appearances. But it takes far too long for the plot to develop and ultimately is of little consequence. ** (Jeff Niesel)
