TIFF 2013 Coverage Movie 4
Very quiet movie. Nothing much really happens but definitely worth your time if you are a fan of Kristen Wiig. I know I am! She's just so good at what she does! Her mannerisms, the way she subtly mixes her comedic personality with the role she's given, it's just great. Not a lot of lines for her but the quirk is there and it was more than enough. First time seeing Hailee Steinfeld, I think she's amazing. Guy Pearce and Nick Nolte delivered as they should!
I didn't quite get the title (though I understand it was based off a book). The atmosphere of the movie was calm and minimalistic, even the color tone suited it. The camera movement was great. The feeling this movie gave me was weird, everyone of us seeks contentment but I don't think we really get it because we keep wanting more. With Wiig's character, I believe she only wanted one thing and when she finally got it, she utters that phrase I've been itching to say "I have what I want".
This is a must see.
