Trivia

The character Duncan Reynolds, played by Jonathan Majors, was called Trader Faulkner in the original 1997 novel by Martin Amis. However the actor Trader Faulkner objected to the use of his name, resulting in the change. Faulkner and Amis had appeared together in the film A High Wind in Jamaica (1965), and Amis had been taken with the name. See more »

Stimulating
23 March 2019 | by drjgardnerSee all my reviews

This is probably the most intellectually stimulating film I've seen in years. That doesn't make it necessarily entertaining. Truth be told, it is a little too long and they could have sculpted an even better ending. That being said, the film is marvelous. The acting is top notch. This may be the best performances ever by James Caan and Jacki Weaver and it is a tour d'force from Patricia Clarkson.

Warning - the film requires some thought and the average viewer may find it difficult to understand, much less benefit from the film.

At first blush it is a murder mystery, but then again, it isn't, though in fact it is indeed. It's the story of a daughter who knows too much and one who knows too little, yet somehow, the one will give birth to the other, in ways no one will expect.
