Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: A gut-punching, heartbreaking movie, with Affleck's Lee in the epicentre ... a perfect role for the under-appreciated actor.
Fresh: There are no contrivances, no manipulations, no false notes. Lonergan's film rings true as the complex relationships and multi-layered intricacies of grief find a compass that points to calmer waters. Prepare to be moved. This is one of the year's best.
Fresh: Adopting a jigsaw-like structure, as past memories impinge on the present, Lonergan layers his characters with an enviable emotional complexity.
Fresh: This is an exquisitely well-told tale about the way we deal with trauma and loss.
A tour de force of acting with some really incredibly amazing performances, Afflecks' in particular. Check it out!
One of the best of the year
This is an amazing movie and it definitely worth watching. It is incredibly funny but also hard breaking. One of the saddest, but best movies of the year.
This filme is a potent and accurate depicition of human emotions, male and female, engagement and loss. Casey brings the real deal of what it feels like to struggle with dense and dark feelings, a mystery to men, and Michelle is brillaint in one seen which will pull you deep into the nature of loss, and redemption. Its a very powerful movie and one which, with a caution, to not take loss and rage lightly. Bravo.
