A heart-wrenching and gutting journey
15 March 2020 | by thejunkofalifetimeSee all my reviews

This vulnerable and raw story tugged at my heartstrings and brought me to tears as I sat alone in the theater at the LA premiere. The performances were extraordinary, and Katharine's direction brought the story to life beautifully, making me laugh at some moments and weep at others. This role was absolutely made for Simon Pegg; it brought out the intricacy and intimacy of his acting in a jaw-dropping way, and Juno Temple met him head-on with no difficulty. A beautiful and eye-opening journey that portrays mental illness in a true and uncompromising way few films manage to do.
