John and Alice live in small-town America married, very much in love, and broke. But an accident leads them to a roadside antique shop where Alice is spontaneously drawn to a mysterious brass teapot. It isn't long before they realize that this is no ordinary teapot and that perhaps they have found the answer to all of their financial woes. John and Alice must decide how far they will go to fulfill their dreams of wealth.
I had no expectations about this movie and since getting Amazon Fire TV with Prime I thought I would give it a chance and if it sucked change it. It didn't suck!
Alice and John are a young couple who are NOT living the good life. They struggle, Alice can't find work. John is not good at his job. They are behind on rent and get harassed by their annoying landlord, a guy they both went to school with.
While out for a drive they are involved in a car accident. Somehow they both walk away and while John discusses the accident with the law enforcement, Alice takes off to check out a brass tea pot she spotted from across the street.
For some reason Alice needs this pot so badly she steals it. One day she finds out the power of the pot and this is where the movie gets good.
The movie takes the direction of personal morals! How far will they go? What will they do next? How will they handle the repercussions?
It was truly a great movie; funny, dramatic and smart. Juno Temple has become one of my favorite actresses. Michael Argarano was likeable and sweet as John. I was also thrilled to see one of my favorite Gilmore Girls, Alexis Bledel who plays Alice's very beautiful, rich friend.
Great movie that may not be on your radar. I never heard of it until it was on Amazon Prime and I am happy to pass it on.
