did you know this movie takes place in boston?
i picked up on it because my dad was from boston and i've been there many times, but i just wanted to make sure that you guys didn't miss that detail — it really unlocks the whole movie once you figure it out.
(this film is a zillion times better than it probably had to be… a sober, nuanced portrait that parses the difference between real strength and empty symbolism… just a little relevant. Gyllenhaal is great, and Maslany is GREAT. well done, DGG)
gerwig's influence on baumbach cannot be understated, this has almost every staple of his early work (primarily the male existential anxiety and familial fallout) but there's a sharpness to the editing rhythm + compositions and a kindness in the writing, a maturity and generosity that deepens the characters and comedy where the anger and cruelty of his earlier efforts would've undermined them. performances are uniformly excellent of course but elizabeth marvel nearly walks away with this.
