At the end of the film, a character turns on "The Mary Tyler Moore Show" - the theme song is playing and the lyrics say "you might just make it after all". This movie takes place in 1974. MTM Show ran from 1970-1977 - by 1974 they would have been using the theme song that goes "you're gonna make it after all". See more »

An uncomfortable experience, but it's really well acted.
11 January 2017 | by Red_IdentitySee all my reviews

I hadn't really read anything about the plot of the film. I only heard the praise for Hall and so I decided to give it a go. A few minutes in and I realized what real-life event it was going to be about and it really soured my mood. It's just not a fun film to watch at all. I've read so much about the real life person that the whole thing was just a very depressing experience. It's hard for me o accurately judge the film as a whole but I can say that Rebecca Hall is devastatingly effective here. There are no false notes in her performance at all and I am tempted to say that it is one of the finest portrayals of depression I have ever seen in a film. She makes you absolutely feel her pain and her sorrow and it all becomes so powerful that it makes the whole thing even more grim. She should be getting all of the award nominations possible and the fact that she has flown so under the radar is absolutely criminal.
