I don’t have the words to say how much I love this movie yet. It felt so small, from the location to the focus on a handful of characters, and so impossibly big in the story it captured.
I am also now craving the water from the mountains.
Maria Bakalova was incredible, and so were Judith, Doris, and Jeanise for completely different reasons. The twist in the last ten minutes was *perfection*. The movie does a great job running through all of the things that make life in the U.S. a nightmare right now. My humble, simple wish is that people stop relying on southerners to do the heavy lifting on that, but I will get off my little soapbox before I go too far down that road
