this movie exists for one reason: dane dehaan. he makes it worth watching. he is unparalleled and organic. an actor.
it's incredible to see how xavier dolan was able to translate such a dialogue-heavy play into a compelling movie. the characters say everything but nothing at the same time, and it's all about the faces, the gestures, and the body language. what a feat it must have been to select and edit the shots together to accurately present the nuances of the characters and their feelings about one another. the cast is wow.
