    ★★★½

    everyone in this film was so fit and likeable and I was able to drop any cynicism over the lifestyle porn and rich people bizz and just indulgeeee in it

    I had no idea what it was about before watching it so was very ~ unsettled ~ throughout. It went a bit west with that final twist but I’ve been sitting on it and I appreciate how bold that move was. It was fairly relentless in throwing these curveballs at the characters and I really felt it.
