My goodness. That was an assault on my emotions. 20 minutes in and I was hoping it would remain a romantic comedy and nothing bad would happen. Instead, I felt like I was being isolated from any semblance of normalcy or understanding, and it was haunting.
And the way this film deals with spirituality is haunting as well. It’s rarely ever front and center, but it lingers in the background, hiding behind deceptively normal dinner conversations.
And holy cow, Mia Farrow was absolutely fantastic. Watching her mentally and physically deteriorate was almost difficult to do.
