This movie is a gem. A tricky balance of serious and funny, sweet and sour, brilliantly executed by director Vives and cast. Mary Elizabeth Winstead should have gotten an Oscar nomination for her searing performance as Nina. Common's performance has depth, wit...and is sexy as hell. This movie surprises, enrages, and satisfies. You haven't seen it before...truly original.

Oscar worthy performance by Mary Elizabeth. Go watch this if you can. Or watch it with boxxy software for free. Funny, sad, witty, and very entertaining.

Winstead rupe baraca si apoi vomita pe ea

Mary Elizabeth Winstead puts in the performance of her career. If you are a transformers type, or you like aqua man, this film might not be dumb enough, or closer to the reality TV most Americans are watching these days. Also, no explosions or special effects. She certainly showed us what she is capable with the gem of a performance she created in the last season of Fargo.

This was the feature film debut for the director Eva Vives, who was also the writer on this terrific film. This was obviously a small independent film, as Hollywood has forgotten how to make such story driven, well written, tightly directed gems like this one. Common was outstanding as usual. He is an amazing talent. All of the supporting cast was excellent. The story line progressed in totally unpredictable fashion, and the ending was about as good as it could possibly be, considering the challenging direction the story took toward the end.

I highly recommend this film.

The movie is well shot, and Mary Elizabeth Winstead gives an exceptional performance. Kate del Castillo is particular standout as well. However, the script leans heavily into many Indie tropes that try to steer the film into "brutally honest" territory but ultimately landing in "cliched shock-attempt territory." The story for me was rather unappealing, but the performances, dialogue, and visual presentation make it a worthwhile watch.

"All About Nina" houses Mary Elizabeth Winstead in her prime with a career best performance so far. Overcoming shallow tropes with a powerful feminine perspective, Eva Vives has put together a very real, very moving portrait of a woman pushing past trauma not just to survive, but to thrive. Though it doesn't feel fully fresh, "All About Nina" is pretty much the Mary Elizabeth Winstead show, and that's definitely a good thing.

If you are reading this and haven't seen the movie, stop what you are doing (if you can) and watch it or put it on the agenda for movie night. It is great. Amazing acting, powerful story, wonderful direction. I love when I go into a movie with no or low expectations and come out feeling like I found a hidden treasure.

This film is likely to be seen as divisive, but, it's not intended to be. Instead, it's a wake-up call to half of humanity, and a fucking fine film to boot. I don't know who wrote this film, but whoever it is deserves an Oscar, and I'd love to see Mary Elizabeth Winstead nominated as well. What a gut-wrenching depiction of a woman whose story is disturbingly common. This country has a lot of apologizing to do to women, and this piece of art stands out as a beacon through the fog that we need to be headed toward. Women deserve to be listened to and believed. The culture of patriarchy is still thriving, alive and well, perhaps hidden better in the shadow of movements like #MeToo, but forever on guard of its controlling interests, and nowhere near lifeless. Until we break the mental bonds of cultural hegemony and unite, women and men, to fight the culture of patriarchy, misogyny and fraternal protection, the monsters will remain. Go see this movie, and Academy, nominate it.

This movie is raw and beautiful. It is a breath of fresh air to see a complex character that is multi demensional. You feel like you are there with Nina and her struggles and her screw ups. You are rooting for her even though she is crass and impossible because at the same time she is vulnerable and loveable. The men in the movie take second place to the story. This is clearly a film by a woman about a woman. The direction is flawless- See it!
