Some kind of brilliant alchemy between script, actress, and direction took place to create this beautifully enigmatic performance by Jessie Pinnick. So original and naturalistic that it seems crazy to compare it to great '17 performances like Cynthia Nixon's Emily Dickinson or Margot Robbie's Tonya Harding, but Pinnick's will stick with you like few others will. The movie will too.
And do you miss Jonathan Demme like I do? Look no further than Chicago's Stephen Cone. As with Demme, every face in the frame is a human being with a story you want to hear.
