jackkyser’s review published on Letterboxd:
Absolutely lovely. C’mon C’mon is the kind of film to get lost in, with its series of small moments resulting in a cumulative power that’s hard to shake after leaving the cinema. Mike Mills is three-for-three after Beginners (2011) and 20th Century Women (2016), and Joaquin Phoenix is utterly beguiling. His relationship with his nephew (a wonderful Woody Norman) is heartwarming in its sincerity.
This is an opening day kind of movie for me, and the experience felt like a big hug. I look forward to going back to the cinema again for that same feeling.
