It's a difficult watch
21 May 2018 | by corrado-prizziSee all my reviews

The story is first class, but Jimmy might've bitten off more than he could chew here. He gets his pants acted off him by the rest of the top cast, especially Charlotte Gainsbourg. His accent's wandering all over the place and he seems nervous. The guy is one of my favorite actors ever, but this genre's maybe a step too far.
