lily’s review published on Letterboxd:
not since thoroughbreds have i been so excited and waited with such anticipation for a movie. it wasn't coming to my town until december 14th, but when one is in new york for a concert...you go to the last showing of this of the day. and it was fucking worth it.
my expectations for this were so high that's its been sitting in my favorites, even though i hadn't even seen it. i was so confident it belonged there, and i was right.
unfortunately i missed i think around five minutes at the beginning, but ill definitely be watching it again (and a few hundred more times after that.)
other than that, what i saw was a perfect movie. its not only smartly quickwitted but just flat out fucking hilarious. its actually quite palatable humor, not near as niche as i thought it was going to be. the language used in it also wasn't hard to understand for a period piece (consider this, I'm stupid.)
rachel weisz is my favorite by far. but that was expected. emma did a good job because i didn't like her. olivia colman knocked it out of the park as well. but none of that is surprising. i like how you can laugh all the way through this movie, so much so that you don't even consider it ending on such an intriguing, gut-kicking, ponderous note.
the wide shots are hot...thanks yorgos!
and that ending...rachel was right, she really did win. and also, she (and this) are my Favourite.
