“Mulligan’s frayed performance resolves into an immensely powerful study of reinvention. It’s striking to see such a proven actress deliver what’s so clearly the best work of her career”~David Ehrlich, Indiewire
Aroview: Actor Paul Dano makes an impressive directorial debut with this adaptation of the novel by Richard Ford. Set in Montana in the fall of 1960, a child observes the emotional fallout as his father loses his job and his mother embarks on an affair. An immensely powerful coming-of-age portrait with consistently excellent performances from the whole cast.
4 stars (Very Good) Moving, but not simplistic. Life in the US for poor whites, 1960. Nothing about wildlife! Sexual relationships in poor families are driven by the money-earning ability of men. The interaction of economics & love is very relevant to NZ problems.~Sandy
