I have just finished watching this movie, and prior to that, the first two that are basically identical, though one from his perspective and the other from her's. The problem I found is that even the first 2 movies (Titles "The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby: Him (2013)" and "The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby: Her (2013)" had too many scenes that aside from the odd word were identical. To then watch this movie, I could find nothing that I had not already seen in the previous 2 movies. In fact, I have to say that 2 of the 3 movies were superfluous with nothing snappy, or fresh...I felt like I watched a very long drawn out movie that only held my attention because of the hype I'd read by previous reviewers here (who should be banned for saying how artistically it was done. Copying something is not artistic. Basically one horrid and boring movie stamped into 3 movies, though from the producers perspective they got to use many of the same film parts, so the cost of production would have been low - 3 for the price of one. As for the acting - below par, even for Eleanor's father played by William Hurt - yes they were all supposedly dysfunctional with a fairly high lacking of communication skills on both sides of the families with each and every character, but they almost all acted as if they were in a severe state of depression - the sister (a blond Jess Weixler) who was supposed to be only 2 yrs younger than Eleanor (Jessica Chastain) (but looks at least 10) was the only one to have any life in her, though she is pretty much a side character so didn't and couldn't have lifted the movie. Yes I get it was supposed to be sad - dead child (which they never in all 3 movies went into detail so we never even found out how the child died at age 2 yrs I think he was - not a single flashback of the child only the 2 main characters)= marriage breakup = angst for everybody +++ (just like in real life for many, so really what was new about this movie, or rather what made it worth watching - I can say for myself it just wasn't worth watching, and that is rare for me to say.
One couple's story as they try to reclaim the life and love they once knew and pick up the pieces of a past that may be too far gone.
