    I cannot even began to describe how affecting this was. I've never been more proud to be a Latino and have the utmost respect and admiration to those who risked everything just to live a better life for themselves and their family (some of my own family included). This is an incredibly beautiful, humanist, and devastating film with more empathy than most I've ever seen; necessary viewing in these times especially. What a film.

    On paper, Margot could seem like a complete villain; but her scenes of weakness (most notably the tree-climbing, hospital visit, and novel press-conference) perfectly acted by Kidman elevate the character to something unmistakably human, and flawed rather than one dimensionally "evil". I know too many of these characters in my own life, and the raw darkness of human nature Baumbach crafts which subtly permeates each frame is at times, overwhelming. I can see why this film may be too much…

    Going to start this “review” by saying that this isn't going to be a very formative review in the slightest. In fact, this will be more of an extremely personal write up (Although I will go into depth on the film as well, just a disclaimer if you’re interested). I am head over heels for this groundbreaking piece of art on my 5th watch (in one week!!!) and have decided to go into detail why this hits home for me…
