It all felt so fresh. From start to finish, my heart soared.
Ronan’s brilliant performance left me floored.
This classic’s revisit
Is truly exquisite.
Captivating direction from Gerwig, and beautifully scored.
Film student Julie: trying to prove her directorial vision will fit.
There’s insufferable Anthony: a wanker, user and ultimate git.
The pacing: perfection.
Swinton Byrne shines. And every moment is exquisitely lit.
A gentle love, and the bigotry hits them like a mallet.
Violence, gossip and politics (upcoming ballot).
Though at times the story’s slight,
The film excels visually (use of light,
Plus a gorgeously joyous colour palette).
Time, loss and grief (with its profound feeling of sinking).
Watching, there were fluctuations in my thinking:
From 'I'm gonna cry. Where's my hankie?'
To 'Ugh, now this feels wanky.'
To me, a misstep: sheeted neighbour, with memory shrinking.
A perfect film. Unforgettable, in ways most profound.
Beautiful story of two who are inexorably bound.
'they're ridiculous?': the best line.
Exquisite framing. Superb use of music and sound.
