Wow! This movie is going to do well. I kept waiting for the typical Hollywood formula but it never happened. I went into it with mixed expectations, first I figured it would be another low budget piece of crap with an interesting premise, and second I figured it could be an excellently executed production and script because Ray Liotta never backs a movie that he doesn't fully believe in, and I have learned to trust his judgement.
My second expectation proved to be correct. This movie really is a glimmer of light in a sea of formulaic garbage. Everything was accomplished with the perfectionism I have come to expect from a Ray Liotta project. It is both timely and extremely plausible with the originality you would expect from a Hollywood that disappeared seventy years ago.
If you are a true fan of cinema like me I highly recommend this movie.
