Even if this movie wasn’t good, I would watch it over and over for the soundtrack alone. I also wasn’t expecting this to turn into an Arthouse flick with killer long shots and angles, like what? Olivia Wilde is A FILM MAKER. This is infectiously hilarious. I was sweating from how hard I was laughing level of hilarity. I can’t remember the last thing to bring me this much true joy that didn’t depress me at the same time. These actresses are going places with their deliveries; what a time to be alive.
After viewing, I’ve added the below list as things I will fear in the near future:
Brownies with nuts
Awkward dinner conversations
My own Grandmother
I prepared for this screening, knowing full well one of my best friends would need me to stay the night with her afterward. Her fear and anxiety turned out fine, mine however... I felt shaken and uneasy for 2 plus hours…
Future bio-pics be warned; there’s a new set standard in cinema.
Gosling gives the performance I’ve been dying to see from him, aided by Claire Foy, whom I’ve come to expect nothing less of. The nature of their family dynamics and the simplistic heartbreak they carry is nothing short of stunning. Exposing the truth of what a picket fence family was expected to be, and the reality on the other side of the street in 1960s America.
