This one had my heart in a vice from like the first fifteen minutes. I kept waiting for something tragic or terrible to happen, and the fact that nothing did made the ending all the more devastating. I know hunk of the moment Paul Mescal is getting the Oscar nom and buzz for this movie, but the girl who plays his daughter, Frankie Corio, is one of the best performances by a kid I've ever seen. This one really made me feel something about getting older and knowing that of the people you have in your life, your memories of them are really only what you have and that's it.
