Little Ashes

Directed by Paul Morrison (E1)

Little Ashes follows the college years of Salvador Dali (Robert Pattison), filmmaker Luis Buñuel (Matthew McNulty) and poet Federico García Lorca (Javier Beltrán), particularly the romantic and tumultuous relationship between Dali and Lorca. Considering the supposedly outrageous and shocking artists the film is about, Little Ashes is terribly dull and straightforward. The story is told in a below-average, A-to-B biopic fashion, the acting is shallow and the romance is full of such bittersweet sentiment and angst it comes off more as a gay Twilight than a Dali painting. If you're a Dali fanatic or want to see a pre-fame Pattison this film may work for you. If not, don't bother.
