Magnificent movie, phenomenal casting, watch it twice!
I watched this on Netflix Instant streaming - because I have enjoyed all 4 lead players in the past. Ellen Burstyn was completely amazing, as usual. Martin Landau, once again did a stellar job and both Adam Scott and Elizabeth Banks were absolutely at their respective bests!
Beyond the fantastic acting, the story grabbed me immediately. My only frustration with the story was that I wanted better character development, I wanted to know more about both Mary and Robert's past. If you're feeling this way, stick with it, you'll be happy you did.
As another reviewer here said, watch it twice. You'll pick up so much that you didn't quite "get" the first time you watched it.
I couldn't have enjoyed this movie more and kudos to all involved!!
