    A beautifully observed film, full of nuance and unspoken context, I really loved it. In point of fact, I've BEEN Madeleine in this film - inspired by a loved one's values, a total fish out of urban waters, and worked in an art gallery to boot. I understand her world and point of view, and was amazed at how the film managed never to judge rural America, but I think because Madeleine doesn't. Outsider art, outsider families, they all fascinate her. And I'm not even talking about Amy Adams' crazy good portrayal of Ashley. 2 years 3 months ago

    I watched this for Amy Adams, and she was delightful as expected. Other than that, the film pleasantly surprised me and I recommend. 6 years 5 months ago
