Subdued but fascinating drama, with the first and third segment coming out the strongest (I found the second one, with the couple, a bit limp). Impressive performances by Jared Harris and Lily Gladstone.
However, a jarring bit which I thought stretched credibility was the sequence whereLaura Dern's character is sent into the arms of a hostage taker, who may or may not be armed for all the police knows.1 year 6 months ago
If I wanted to look at unhappy women for 100 minutes I could just stare at my wife. Hey-yo.
Seriously though, this was a slow burn about everyday people seeking their dream to only come up empty and unfulfilled. Sad, well told, and impactful. This one will stick with me for a bit. 1 year 4 months ago
