    I got lots of Zodiac vibes during this, and not just because of Ruffalo, but it feels like they used the same gameplan for this film, just investigating a different topic.

    Ruffalo, Keaton, and McAdams are all wonderful. The hidden gem for me was John Slattery, who didn't have a super meaty role to work with, but was wonderful when he'd make an appearance.

    On a side note: This seems like the kind of film designed to win Best Picture…

    Someone should screen a double bill of this and Gone Girl as an introductory course on why nobody should ever aspire to be a suburban white person in America.

    Also, I miss Thora Birch, whatever happened to her?

    This is outstanding and something I kind of need to process a bit, but I can confidently say that up to this point, Katherine Waterston and Elisabeth Moss have given my two favorite performances of the year.
