writer/director Joanna Hogg
acting debut of Tilda Swinton's daughter, Honor Swinton Byrne

Honor gives a stellar performance. does her performance make people who've spent their entire lives learning to act cry? you can't this gracefully immediately enter, for example, writing or directing, you know. i mean she really brings it. what i most like about Joanna Hogg is her age. she's currently 59. i think it's cool she made this movie. i think the movie was okay. understated dramas leave me underwhelmed, that seems like an inevitable occurrence

3-4 clutch scenes and a powerful lingering feeling. just not sure why i'd watch it again kind of thing

saw this last week. kind of movie where i kind of get rotten tomatoes giving it 90% while the audience rating is like 10%. it was good, just dragged a bit much for me. also projector was doing this light play were it would be bright, then dim, then back to bright, then dim again, which did not help the experience.
