    This movie broke me. The beginning f*cked me harder than the opening of Up and it seemed like I was in years for 80% of the runtime.

The story and tone feel very much like a stage play as it’s contained and entirely character and performance driven, and all of it works thanks to Finley, as well as actresses Anya Taylor-Joy and Olivia Cooke. A producer of the film mentioned in the Q&A afterward how Finley’s play was floating around Hollywood before being picked…
