The little things make or break this story.
25 May 2019 | by kryptonarieSee all my reviews

I haven't read the book, but I liked movie, "We Have Always Lived In The Castle." I think the casting and acting are perfect, the cinematography is beautiful, but really, this movie will seem rather pointless if you miss any of the latent clues. And even when you catch those fleeting intimations of character, you have to be willing to cogitate their meanings in the story, because they are what motivates each character to do what they do.

I don't like to leave spoilers, so if you're reading this before watching the movie, all I can say is, pay attention, because it's the little things that will make or break this film for you.
