    ★★★½

    The cast is perfection, and the way in which Baumbach milks the emotional strife from each and every scenario we're given is wholly authentic and quietly gut-punching.

    ★★★★★

    A soul draining cinematic rumination on time, grief and what we leave behind when we move from this plane of existence to the next. Each moment of quiet reflection, each and every breathtakingly composed shot that lingers on several beats longer than expected, every single note of that haunting, heartbreaking score; they all weigh down upon you with the heft of an entire life, and leave you exhausted in the most painfully beautiful way imaginable.
