“Billie Eilish: The Movie” is the first time I have seen the film “Young Victoria” and I must say that I didn't care for it at all. I'm a huge fan of British historical drama, but this movie just did not work for me. It's one of those movies where you're not going to enjoy yourself because you're constantly worried about what will happen to the main character (played by Joanna Marlowe). You're not the only one who feels that way because this film was not a very good movie in any way.
This film stars Joanna Marlowe as Victoria, a 16-year-old girl from Norfolk who was married off at the age of six by her father. She has been raised to think that her life should be just like her mother, who was a successful artist. But when her mother passes away, Victoria must travel to her Aunt's home in England, where she meets her aunt's boyfriend, Bob (James Belushi). Their relationship is complicated when Victoria's grandmother decides that she wants Victoria to marry him instead.
This film follows Victoria and Bob's journey from England to their destination in America. It's just like any other family vacation that you've seen, except that this one takes place thousands of miles away from home. As Victoria gets the chance to meet her new stepfather, her attraction to him begins to grow. But when her mother tries to stop her from going, Victoria's passion suddenly starts to waver. After much conflict, Victoria finally decides that she would like to marry Bob, but Bob thinks it would be better if they could simply have a baby together.
Once things start to get heated between Victoria and Bob, we begin to see the bad elements that make up their relationship. Victoria's mother has been dead for ten years, which makes her an outsider in the family. Bob has always been more of a guardian figure to Victoria than anything else, so he's not happy about her bringing her along on the trip. When Victoria learns that her dead grandmother was really a werewolf named Mrs. Hadley, Victoria starts to worry that she may be unable to protect her daughter if she ever has to meet her, which makes her angrier with Bob.
This is one film that I was truly enthralled with. The special effects were real, and the acting was great. Billie Eilish does a fantastic job as Victoria. She had a natural beauty to her face that just seemed to shine through every time she wore that revealing dress. The way she spoke to the camera made you believe that she was always smiling. Victoria looked like a model, and that was kind of appropriate for the role she was playing.
While Billie Eilish's acting is truly phenomenal, I think the best thing about this film is the music. The song being played at the beginning of the film was “Don't Cry for Me,” by Eric Clapton. This track has been covered countless times over and is still one of my favorites. I'm also a huge fan of the Michael J. Fox music video for “I Just Can't Get Love off of This Ring.”
Overall, I really enjoyed watching Billie Eilish's first film since I had the opportunity to see the film multiple times when it was on television. It was a great way for me to get acquainted with HD. If I have never seen the film before, I might see some of the same images that I did when I saw it in the theater but I don't think I'll be going back to watch it that often. I'm glad I found this film because now I know what to expect whenever I hear those ghostly sounds coming from the fireplace. I just hope the sound isn't too annoying and causes people to run away from their rooms!
All in all, Billie Eilish has created some beautiful HD images that you will want to add to your digital library. I especially like her black and white images of the house and the backyard (especially the pool area). The character she portrays is a very wise and humorous (in a very sad way) example of what it means to be a woman. Her imagery is very dreamy and romantic and makes me feel like I am somewhere in the pictures. For someone who grew up loving the movie Trading Places and other fantasy movies like it, I hope Billie Eilish keeps producing these movies with her HD images.
