Brooklyn was pitched in a similarly boring way and it turned out to be great, so maybe unmarketability is just Saoirse Ronan's thing now.
Now you're in the *spoiler* place.

Yep.
Christopher Nolan's directive was clear to everyone in the cast and crew: Use CGI only as a last resort.

I need to see again to fully grasp my affection for it, but this is very sweet and tender

Not sure it's Frances or Mistress level, but this operates on a mostly different, and more broadly accessible level

I'm astonished by how in command Greta is behind the camera and she maintains a feverish comic energy until you begin to recognize a level of melancholy sadness beneath the surface that chokes you up and brings you to tears in the final act

I'm still ambivalent about the closing sections as it runs out of steam a bit, but Metcalf is the heartbreaking emotional anchor of it all, and this is evidence that Ronan is currently one of the best actresses in the game-- she effortlessly melts into a character so divorced from how she is in reality with the most infectious charisma
