I would begin with describing a moment I fell in love with these characters, but I can't pick just one.

Whether it's Die smacking on gum while ferociously defending her troubled son Steve. Or seeing Die, Steve, and Kyla have a spontaneous dance party in the kitchen to Celine Dion. Or watching the two ladies sipping drinks on the patio, laughing so hard they can't breathe, the blueish glow of magic hour giving the proverbial rose-colored glasses a new hue. This film is filled with beautiful and poignant moments between these troubled characters, and boy has Dolan picked the right actors for the job.

Dorval. Pilon. Clement. Each one of them is a total powerhouse and proves they completely understand their respective characters, baring their souls and showing us real, genuine people.

I don't even know what else to say, this is a completely beautiful and stunningly crafted film that spoke absolute volumes to me. Thank you for this, Mr. Dolan.
