"How come you don't like me?"
"I don't have to like you!"
(Not a spoiler as this classic exchange is in the trailer.)
It was a nice surprise not to feel my heart sink, as I realise I can barely understand a word the cast are saying in most films these days, as they mumble incomprehensible one-liners - for example, Nicole Kidman in 'Lion' (nonetheless a great film) - it restored my faith in the American accent and that it is not a completely different language needing subtitles.
Viola Davis delivers an absolutely stunning performance. I cannot understand how in the BAFTA ceremony she only got 'best supporting actress', as she is far superior to Emma Stone in La-La-Land, who got 'best actress'.
It's a super, super drama. The father and son conflict is acted out superbly. There are no superlatives to describe just how excellent this film is.
