A uniquely unsettling character study, leaning hard into its leads’ imperfections, inscrutability, and feelings of fear, pain, regret, and parental ennui in past-present parallel examinations of motherhood, helped by terrific performances, good editing, an enigmatic soundtrack, and in-their-face cinematography. Could have benefited from a tighter focus (Lyle and the Greek gang felt a bit unnecessary to the thrust of the film) and a less easy and orange-y final scene. Cool titles after though.
I really need to watch this and ‘The Favorite.’ I absolutely loved Olivia Colman in ‘Tyrannosaur.’
That’s one that *I* need to watch! Would definitely recommend this one and The Favourite!
