I'm so glad I went into this movie without knowing much (and frankly unaware of the original Danish film) because the direction the movie goes was both surprising and heartfelt. If it wasn't for the somewhat melodramatic third act, this would probably be a movie that could be up for awards this winter. Michelle Williams once again proves why she's a world class actress, Julianne Moore is equally as good, Billy Crudup provides a mostly reserved but nonetheless impactful turn, and newcomer Abby Quinn shows she has a legit future in this business. It's carried by the acting but leaves something to be desired in the adapted screenplay. All in all, this one was worth it to me.
