My favorite IMDB trivia for this film is that Jamie Foxx was watching the monitor on the first day of filming and, upon seeing Jon Hamm, said "oh he handsome." It's a highly relatable sentiment.
It was really cute and lowkey made me cry. I used to always cry at movies but then maybe 3 years ago totally stopped and never cried at them anymore but in the last few months I've started tearing up at them again (objectively this is good but I also started law school a few months ago so it might just be my anxiety idk)
Since the election I've been thinking a lot about my identity as a Jewish person. This film perfectly encapsulates the struggle of the white Jewish American in deciding whether or not to openly claim their Jewish identity. We have the ability to blend into white Christian places without being seen as an other. Even though anti-Semitism remains prominent in America, and the world, many Jews have the ability to blend into the background, a luxury that other oppressed people don't have. This film deals with this crisis perfectly through Adam Driver's character.
Can't believe that three movies in a row made me super emotional!
