these boots are made for walkin'
This is artistic and colorful filmmaking, a sweeping portrait of a girl-turned-superstar punctuated by various shades of brutality. Raffey Cassidy has two outstanding star turns. Every time Miss Natalie Portman opened her mouth I thought, This is gonna be the scene they play at the Academy Awards for best actress/screenplay/director/picture. I'm left in awe, on edge, and deep in thought.
After the film, Natalie Portman and Brady Corbet gave a very insightful and warmhearted q&a.
