This was Glen Closes film. Definitely the stand out, the ACTOR, the driver and puller. Robbed of a title but not an accomplishment. Of course beautiful story writing and direction. Thank you Glen, Enjoyed it Universally. Saludos
I have no idea why Close didn't get an Oscar for this. The story itself might be absurd but Close's performance is astonishing.
I had no expectations of this movie and was blown away. What an incredible film. The acting is spectacular, the story compelling. Every moment of the film needs to be paid attention to. The story had me intrigued. I loved it.
Glenn Close is mesmerizing in this film. I loved this movie for it's depth, on many levels. I am a huge fan of Glenn Close, she is just so audacious as an actress. I always get lost in her characters.
It's a little far fetched, the son over acted but it's still an amazing moviee thanks to Close. She had 30 versions of silence. to start. I said far fetched but a lot of it real. The last scene her hollding his hands while he dies was very real. When relationships are very long both sides have a part in the outcome . I didn't see the lady who won but this was definattely Oscar-worthy. I hope they fnd more tnhings for Close to do. I'd definately like to see them.
She deserved Best Actress as the long suffering wife of author Joseph Castleman. Set in beautiful Stockholm, the movie takes an unusual turn of events. Beautiful ending on the plane. It's poignant with flawed characters and well worth watching.
This movie had great opportunity and the potential to be truly a wonderful movie. However, the plot line was 110% predictable and the movie never got going. At the end of the day everything that happened you would assume would happen based on the plotline of the movie. It was a tragically is average airplane rental movie on my iPad. I Kinda think I wasted my money.
Finally - a movie I wanted my friends to see so we could talk about it. Pryce and Close are magnificent in this excellent film about a multitude of issues. Flashbacks and well played scenes keep the film moving and riveting. I needed to watch it twice. I would have liked a bit more back story about “young” Joan and her motivations to be with Pryce- but some of the films ambiguity make it even more compelling and thought provoking.
So good. Glenn is always 🙌🏽💯. Really enjoyed this.
It was so obvious what the film was about when we see her face during the phone call. Yes, she did a wonderful job acting, but I didn’t feel it was suspenseful at all.
Good storyline and excellent acting. Fine cinematography. Powerful, profound and entertaining. A movie about a frustrating, obsessive and dysfunctional love affair.
Would do the Same for their wives, whom they Claim to Love?!? You know... give up their dream, their ambition, their gift to support and make successful their partner?! Bravo Ms. Close!
Outstanding performance by Close in every way!
Quelle petite perle ! What a great movie!
