Cynically funny and timely.
18 August 2019 | by roger-99-171599See all my reviews

It's fabulous and very touching. Cate is amazing once again. It's true it is master Linklater's least creative effort, but it delivers powerful statements on family values and perseverance. A crowd pleasing mainstream flick, cynically funny and timely.
