    manages to reckon with immigration from the perspective of those left behind without feeling sensational or dehumanizing. gorgeous shots of nature intersperse the otherwise bleak narrative, like the movie wanted to be a western but kept succumbing to life's harsh realities.

    i'd never connected with this one on previous viewings but after going through some Heavy Relationship Stuff it pretty much destroyed me this time. a minor complaint but there was way more gender essentialism than i remembered?

    a cinematic theater adaption that leans heavily on the theatricality--which i think services the material well! everything you've heard about viola and chadwick's performances is true; the moments of explosive melodrama could be mishandled in the hands of lesser actors but they flesh out the characters with more than enough gravity to carry them.
