Oh, go on...
(I wasn't mad keen on it either)
I was really looking forward to liking it. I like in Bruge and 7 psychopaths... and somehow I got the Impression that it was going to understated and interesting. And then it was neither.
I felt lie it was bludgeoning me over the head with DEPTH and MEANING... only it wasn't all that deep or meaningful.
I figured a film around someone seeking justice for a rape crime would ADDRESS the issue... rather than make a big mention of feminist issues in the beginnning (Dress Aul Frances Macdonald as Rosie the Riveter for the WHOLE film) without touching on the subject, and then undermining any point it almost made with her final scene with the ex husband. (I'm trying not to spoil it, I'm sorry if it's too late.)
The same with bigotry and racism. When they almost make a point they undermine the whole thing.
The thing rambles and rambles on.
I sat there making a list in my head of all the films I WISHED I had been watching which did everything it almost did but better:
It Should Happen to you
Place Beyond the Pines
The Trouble with Harry
There were more, I forget them now.
