    This movie is full of beautiful photography, but at the 16:00 minute mark exactly, we are treated to cinema at its finest.

    Impressively immersive for such a simple story. Kazan manages to make this feel Homeresque in scope and tone.

    There is a scene where they go on Netflix and browse the Netflix Christmas menu and wonder aloud which wonderful Netflix Christmas movie they'll select.

    Understated dialogue is overrated. Next time I have a bad day I'm gonna scream "This is my penance! Do you hear me o' Lord?! THIS...IS...MY PENANCE!!

    I need a rainbow hoodie that says "I Am Kenough!" On it.

    Easily the best movie of 2023 this far. And it is a MOVIE! Stunning, hysterical, touching, and exhilarating. The choreography, art direction, and bold screenplay are all dialled up to eleven. Definitely a film to catch in the theater.

    EDIT: Also Greta Gerwig is the first director to understand how to use Kate McKinnon.

    Also the Indigo Girls needle drop is inspired.
