Intensely longing. Dangerously intimate. Superbly executed.

It stirred something deep within me from the start. It asked for my attention in the most subtle nuanced way and I gave into it. I was transfixed. Both Cate Blanchett and Rooney Mara were perfect. The soundtrack was flowing beautifully. The production design was engrossing. The direction was the culmination of all these elements. A steady confident hand bringing a beautiful story to life in such a simple layered complex way... It's a breathtaking piece of filmmaking.
