“Positives first: the cinematography is quite beautiful and enjoyable, as is the scoring. The performances are great and holding the movie together – the cast does a great job.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eAt the same time I struggled with figuring out what this film was trying to be about.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eA woman in her midlife crisis? Mental health? Racism? A movie theater gradually falling from glory (or finding its way back)? Unusual relationships? Abuse? (At one point there is a conversation that caught me off guard)nAnd then there are some additional nuggets casually thrown in for a moment, but without any weight or meaning.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eAll these themes have great potential to start important conversations, but you have to commit to one and explore it fully – instead, this movie touches on all of them and dances around them, throws in a bunch of sex scenes (some of which being rather unnecessary).u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThat being said, watching the cast was still quite enjoyable, so i still had a reasonably good time.”
