Brilliant film with an unforgettable performance by Alan Cumming
16 December 2012 | by pyotr-3See all my reviews

After the movie ended, the entire audience stayed long afterwards, stunned and devastated by what they had seen.

I expected to be able to predict the ending of this film, but I was very wrong. It was completely unpredictable.

The relationship between Cumming's character and the lawyer was very touching, though it did require an actor of Alan Cumming's massive talent to make the relationship believable. Cumming deserves an Oscar for his performance. I can not imagine that any other actor will surpass Cumming's magic here.

The story takes place in 1979, a year I remember well because I always say it was my favorite year, and I think that they captured the look and feel of 1979 very well.

This is a very beautiful movie that everyone should see. A great story, well acted, and one that will be commented on for years to come.
