Rory (Jude Law), an ambitious entrepreneur and former commodities broker, who persuades his American wife, Allison (Carrie Coon), and their children to leave the comforts of suburban America and return to his native England during the 1980s. Sensing opportunity, Rory rejoins his former firm and leases a centuries-old country manor, with grounds for Allison’s horses and plans to build a stable. Soon the promise of a lucrative new beginning starts to unravel, the couple have to face the unwelcome truths lying beneath the surface of their marriage.

Looks like a less histrionic Revolutionary Road, which is to say it’s right up my wheelhouse.

Best film of the year for me so far. Might even prefer it over Martha Marcy May Marlene.

Jude Law and Carrie Coon has never been this good.

I really liked this, has something to say, good performances etc. But it sort of felt incomplete in the same way MMMM did.

Can you elaberate on that?

I liked how the ending didn't reach any clear conclusion.

Matt Zoller Seitz compared Coon to Gena Rowlands in his Roger Ebert review. That's on point. She should sweep the Xixax awards! :p

It's better than when you try to say it irl: "Have you seen that film, you know, Marcy Mary Marlene... Moa Marlene?"

My comment was actually unfair to MMMM. I love that movie and don't think it was incomplete. And maybe that's not the right word for this one either. This movie does feel like it has finished a complete thought. Maybe it's just a bit simplistic, which is fine.
