The quirkiness got old really quick. The actors got annoyingly old really quick.
Did they all just hang out for a week in lockdown and make this?
And...... what exactly was the story?
I enjoyed this a lot until the very rushed ending. And there was a lot of explanations still needing to be answered that were not tackled. I really didn’t feel a sense of understanding why all of this happened in the first place.
But all the acting was top, some familiar faces. Great use of language.
Some of the shanty singing was appropriate as background, but I didn’t enjoy the vignettes of fisherman singing on rocks. I thought that was rather stupid. Maybe it’s a Maine thing.
A waste of a film. Terrible.
Instead of focusing on the massive impact BJK had on women's tennis, equal rights and feminism the filmmakers chose to fabricate some lesbian love story that had nothing to do with the actual event. Taking the focus to emotions when anyone who knows history knows that BJK does not do feels! She is brain and brawns and fought the good fight. How dare they belittle this with a cocktail waitress storyline.
Really deserves no star but Steve Carell did a fabulous job.
