M.D.D.’s review published on Letterboxd:
I avoided watching this one for years because for some reason I expected something a lot more vapid than what I got, which is silly because it wound up being the exact sort of clever comedy/drama that Spielberg does best. Almost two and a half hours flies by due to the sharply drawn depictions of its characters and exhilarating pacing. Performances expectedly top notch and just the right tone of pathos and amusement throughout. Would make a cute double bill with Wolf of Wall Street!
