Raw, powerful, great acting from both Kate and Leo!
It was dark and very sad. To live a existance you could not stand would be horrible. I liked the movie but it was a touch predictable. My wife fell a sleep a couple times. 4 stars.
I saw this film and I thought it was beautifully shot and powerfully acted. Definitely five stars.
Hard to watch. I can't believe that Kate's character ended up the same as her character in The Reader. I actually preferred The Reader over this one.
Fabulous movie! Both Kate and Leo did a great job. Ironic title. Tension between living your dreams (taking a chance, moving to Europe, writing, furthering your education according to the dream you had as a youth and living the so-called 'American Dream' of the fifties (house, 2 kids, steady boring job as a middle mgr or salesperson with a bunch of other 'Dilberts')and a boring life worrying about what other people think of you bc they are all living in fear , stay-at-home mom). I can see why so many women had to take Valium during that time. Ugh! Sam Menzies is great at showing the ugly side of the American dream. It's far more accurate than most want to believe...which is why they're disap
Too stark. Depressing. Was like a play that was filmed. Can't believe it was nominated for any award!!
Very big disappointment
4 stars out of 5. This is an Oscar contender. Probably wouldn't appeal to most people under 40 years of age. Definitely a hit with boomers and older for the most part. These miserable existances are still plenty. They weren't just confined to the 50's. One of the lessons learned is sometimes in life you've just gotta take the big gamble. Get out of the rut. Leonardo's acting at some points appeared too contrived, but he still pulled it off. Kate however was flawless. signed.....GWH
Good acting but the story was a little boring.
BORING!!! A modern day "Who's afraid of Virginia Wolf" Good acting BUT!
