This movie is beautiful, and really well-acted. Michelle Williams is pretty much fantastic in everything, and doesn't disappoint in this. The costuming and cinematography is gorgeous. And Paul Dano and Zoe Kazan are great together! (the movie they made together is also good, but nowhere near as good as this one)
It's pretty funny, but I was expecting it to be sharper, like Bring It On and it didn't quite get there
Despite all the hype, I wasn't expecting much because the idea of Ben Affleck directing and starring in a movie was too much. I was wrong. I couldn't stop thinking about this movie for days after watching it. It's just thoroughly well-made and everyone should watch it.
This movie made me feel so happy and sad and happy. It will leave you feeling entertained and inspired. John Hawkes just gets better with every movie he's in. This film had delightful performances by basically the whole cast.
The Additional Details section above pretty much covers it, but the thing I loved the most about this book is how well-written the characters are. Michael Deane sticks with you, as do others. The way the chapters are woven together is perfect for weaving the reader through and connecting the worlds into a really thoughtful and well-researched story.
