Great movie, if you actually take the time
8 October 2017 | by prillmanSee all my reviews

This is a film for those audiences that actually take the time and have the patience to experience it, knowing that they will be rewarded. For those that don't, or want everything spoon-fed to them (like another review here), it will be confusing and unrewarding. I've seen it twice as of this writing (Oct 2017), and it was even better the second time around. Everything is spot on, the direction, cinematography, writing, sound, everything. Every role is superbly acted, especially by Maika Monore, Maggie Grace, and Mark Webber. I'm sure it's hard to adapt a novel covering 25 years with many characters' detailed lives into a 100 minute movie, and director Blake Robbins has done an awesome job. (Also, check out his first film "The Sublime and Beautiful".)
