Beanpole ★★★★

Hoop-tober, #31:

A horrifyingly depressing way to finish out Hoop-tober, but by far Millie Bobby Brown’s best performance, and one I doubt she’ll ever top; how she managed to age eight years & learn an entire foreign language, merely for this role — and then de-age herself & erase Russian from her memory(!) — is something over which even method greats like Daniel Day-Lewis and Joaquin Phoenix should be able to marvel.
