Having the opportunity to watch this film at home was actually a good thing. While I love the movie theater experience, sometimes a movie leaves you a little floored and sitting in a crowded theater isn't ideal. The fact that Michael Fassbender wasn't nominated for an award for this film is, a shame(pun intended). The story is slow moving and at first glance one would not fully realize the extent of his sex addiction until a very pivotal point in the movie. Both Fassbender and Mulligan give raw, powerful performances that show they are more than their previous roles portray them to be. It's a gut wrenching film and one I constantly recommend with a cheesy happy movie chaser!
