Good story, Not enough for a whole film
I cannot think of one single thing that I would change about this film. The acting is incomparable, the directing deft, and the writing poignantly brilliant.
This is one of the few movies I've ever seen where the whole audience broke into spontaneous, loud applause a third of the way in.
It’s not bad or unwatchable but despite the amplitude of the spectacle, the end result is underwhelming.
