m. night unleashes a crisis of faith like no other. cures homophobia many times over: the light sweeping across jonathan groff’s devastatingly beautiful eyes, ben aldridge reclaiming cargo shorts, when it just made me cry??? a film about belief in many facets, unashamed in its earnest plea for our capacity to love in spite of what must be sacrificed. astonishing for the breadth of what it reaches for despite its relative simplicity, elevated at every turn by the film’s formal confidence.
m. night shyamALLY.
