This was a second viewing for me, so I was able to breathe through the first half, unlike my initial viewing. Regular air intake left me more room to be in awe of how well Larson and Tremblay are together, each actor strengthening the other. This is a great movie that also manages to be frustrating because so many people will read the synopsis and decide it is not for them.*
Where watched: Laurelhurst with S. North.
*It is. It’s one of the most beautiful films about being a mother that I’ve ever seen.

I have to admit that knowing what it’s about has made me reluctant to watch it. However, I’m anticipating a long period of decompression after the move, a period that will include copious movie watching. Perhaps this one will find its way into the queue.
Is that direction for me? I did read the synopsis and think, nope, NFS. Thank you for the positive goading!
It is a very NFS movie, but I think if you watched it through that lens, you might enjoy it. But I will reiterate, it’s a very NFS movie.
