hauntingly real, 3 July 2012
This movie was hauntingly real--subtle in its slow approach to the
climax and it stays with you long after you have left the theater. All
of the actors are wonderful and capturing the nuances of their
characters. Sarah Polley does it again. The story, set in Toronto,
captures the everyday life of Margot and Lou--and depicts their special
relationship through the details of their special ways of
communicating. It is not until the complexities of Margot's struggle
between her love for Lou and her unyielding attraction to her
neighbour, that you start to feel her personal struggle. The inevitable
ending does not disappoint. Highly recommended.
