Certain Women ★★★★

This movie comprised of three separate stories is simple, yet compelling, with patient pacing that drew me in. The patient filmmaking allowed the stories to seep in my mind and the stories became more complex as each story nods at several American themes. I noticed all three stories involve characters in complex relationships where conflict and connection coexist. I liked the middle story most of all as old Albert is at odds with giving up a part of his history which is perhaps both good and bad, whether intentional on his part or not. The final story is a close second to me and I think the end result of the "conflict" in that story is strong.

Watched as part of my 5x5 Favorite Actresses Challenge!
