Tchaikovsky’s Wife has stunning cinematography and masterful lighting. Alena Mikhaylova gives a great performance. I like the story it tells, love how it’s told, but felt it was hitting the same point over and over again.
Adam McKay’s movies just work for me. I feel his sense of frustration. I don’t care that the point isn’t always made in a clever way. It’s a movie that shouts and that feels right with how the world is right now.
Plus I really enjoyed how funny everyone was in this.
