beautifully shot, the cinematography in the bed scenes specifically is to die for!!! i need those shots framed in my living room.
the barrier between actor and audience is blurred with Andrew Scott’s performance of Adam, a masterclass on subtle acting. the immersive experience is provided by Scott’s ability to emotionally react to his scene partners providing the groundwork for the devastating climax that’s been building up since the parents’ first encounter. the best male lead performance of the year. …
a film with so much heart and charm that it’s impossible not to get swept up in its blissfulness.
it’s not a perfect film, the screenplay crams too many instances and the editing suffers from it… leaving the audience trying to play catch up on plot points that were mentioned by passing.
but the cast’s commitment to their roles, the pitch perfect sound mixing, and it’s charming direction is enough to turn a blind eye on its flaws and enjoy a film that guarantees a smile on its most adamant spectators.
this reminded me A LOT of the soul healing CODA
get your fucking shoes off the mat.
WHAT A FUCKIN’ GOOD TIME!!!! a shame this isn’t getting any attention. every scene serves its purpose. the screenplay is precise, original & fresh. never for a second could i pin down how this was going to end nor was i looking at my watch to check the running time. i didn’t want it to end.
Riley as a director, knows tone and never misses a beat. as an audience i felt the film…
