Review In A Nutshell:
A film that feels profound on its surface but sitting through it was a heavy chore due to its unappealing characters, led with unaffecting chemistry from its two leads.
The film also does not seem as controversial as the film's promotion suggests; I'm sure that I have seen films released before or during the same time that has touched on similar topics more intellectually provocative.
It was all these elements together that made it difficult to maintain my concentration; finding myself constantly at a drift. It is simply possible that I did not give the film the patience and effort it deserves, which is why there is not a doubt that I would come back to this in the future.
