Seems this film has left most viewers with only positive comments to make (quite rare actually). I agree with most of them.
This is a very believable film and is beautiful to watch in parts thanks to Scott's eye for design and natural beauty, esepecially regarding the use of light.
I was mesmerised to know how it was all going to end. I was so sure it was going to end tragically but then was surprised and elevated by the ending that showed the richness & depth of the human experience. I believe there's some meaning for us all in this movie. And I got to hear about this movie by accident!
An amazing quality of a film overall when you read about it's history, which was almost not made!
