My recent diving into films with doing no prior research bit me in the ass a bit here. Wasn't expecting (or really ready) for that opening. For a bit I almost thought I had ended up with something else.
Much more interesting than I had expected this to be overall. I was bound to find some enjoyment as a big pop music fan but this went above and beyond in terms of engrossing elements. Natalie Portman was absolutely wonderful.
Glad this turned out well.
