Shirley ★★★★½

Logan Lerman returns as the white boy of the month, Michael Stuhlbarg is the only person ever to portray a Jewish and poetical professor because he has set the standards to high and Elizabeth Moss delivers her most frightening and layered performance to date. It‘s her year.

„Shirley“ is dreamlike, blends reality together with fiction and mixes drama with suspense. It almost feels like a dark fairytale, because it is completely hypnotizing, there is so much crammed into such a short of run time and oh my gosh is it visually beautiful. It often times feels like the mist in the morning that whirls up it‘s surroundings. It‘s a picture that is so good that you‘re connected even to the smallest detail. And believe me, this one will stay with you for a while.
