I'm at a loss as to why this film garnered so many nominations and awards already (especially when there are so many other deserving yet unrecognized films this year). I found it pretty much unmemorable. There's good actors in it, and a well-intentioned script (though full of inconsistencies and forced plot-device coincidences, etc.), but ultimately the writing, direction, editing, and cinematography added up to nothing exceptional in the service of a story that is supposed to be uniquely exceptional.
