American Fable is ambitious, maybe too much so sometimes, but there's an intense pleasure in the boldness of the film's style.
If it can be said movies have personalities, I give you three words to sum up the basic core identity of "Safe Haven":
Bat. Bleep. Crazy.
This film is nuts. Not in a "wacky comedy" or "outrageous adventure" or "insanely effective romance" kind of way.
Nuts as in, either the filmmakers were out of their minds, or they must think we're out of our minds to buy into this schmaltz. Nuts as in a key character we believe to be pretty much OK turns out to be OUT OF HER MIND.
