    ★★★★½

    The nuance of Colin Firth and the way he portrays emotion is impressively stunning. Beyond talented cast, and one of the strongest screenplays I’ve come across in a while. However, I wish Tom Ford took initiative and trusted his material more rather than just relying on jump cuts between the past and present, and visions of bland but symbolic imagery.
