This was done sooo well, the cast is basically perfect but Saoirse Ronan still steals the show. She perfectly portrays her character and you feel every step of the way as she does. And it's got Bob Odenkirk in it which I absolutely love. I feel like a lot of people complain there aren't better movies out there with a strong, lead female cast but they they won't support the ones that do at the box office, so movie companies will just go where the money is. Go support this movie. It's got a terrific cast, terrific acting, really smart writing and we need to see more female led movies with better writing. So many have great cast and concept but they skimp money on the writing, which kills it. This movie plays out expertly well.
This was super enjoyable. The performances were riveting, Charlize Theron always kills but Margot Robbie stole the show for me here. She has an incredible emotional scene towards the end that's fantastic. The movie really brings up huge points on power and silence in the workplace and hopefully emboldens others. Incredible story that I'm sure barely anyone really knows about. It's good to see more movies like this, it's a step in the right direction. Isn't super serious all of the time either, still keeps a light tone while appropriately building tension to a very sobering finale.
I thought I would like this a lot more, but I walked out feeling like the good and the bad evened out to make it 'ok.' I love Daniel Kaluuya but Jodie Turner-Smith's character was just a jerk the whole time. The first act was really good, then the second act felt like a grinding halt and there was just 5 min in there that I really disliked. For a debut director this was done well, I just felt like personally it wasnt as good as I thought it would be, I was expecting different things. Fantastic acting though and the action, where it was, felt raw. However, I don't really think it got snubbed at Golden Globes.
I have to admit the trailer for this wasn't super exciting, but wow this movie is incredible in an "everyone needs to know this" kind of way. This story is absolutely insane and the fact it's basically still going on as a 20 year battle is nuts. It doesn't beat around the bush, it solidly shows all the actions DuPont has pulled over the years and shows all the flaws big companies will use to wield power over just about anyone. I hope this really opens peoples eyes to other issues like this that normally just get passed up. I like researching and I still barely knew anything about it, and that's scary. Actors are all amazing obviously, you have to love Mark Ruffalo & Anne Hathaway.
I was super excited for this but super worried it was gonna suck since it's so hard to make a legitimately good mystery movie nowadays when we feel like we've seen it all, I was wondering what new stuff they could bring to a whodunnit. But it totally delivers, I have forgiven Rian Johnson for 'The Last Jedi,' this is so good. So many great twists and turns that make it smarter than I expected but not confusing, it comfortably establishes characters and plot but doesn't leave you behind. Acting is terrific all around, Daniel Craig especially. Love this character. Definitely fun to go see, lives up to the hype surprisingly enough, and writing is done very well. So happy this was so good.
