As most critics have noted it is a GOOD movie.
Well directed, brilliant acting from the leads and beautifully shot.
I have a bit of a soft spot for melancholy films so I quite enjoyed it. However, while I considered it a GOOD film it never became great film for me because I found the main characters Jacob and Anna unlikeable.
I found them incredibly selfish and impulsive. I'd call them assholes but they are beautiful assholes who hand make chairs and recite poetry in a lovely British accent so I guess that gives them a pass (I dunno maybe).
As an aside I loved Alex Kingston and Oliver Muirhead as the parents of Felicity Jones' Anna.
Solid B+. Go check it out.
