Unusual structure, overall a fresh approach to an idea that isn't new but is uniquely rendered here. It hits hard at the end of the first act, then goes in another direction entirely for the second.
When you think you have it figured out, you probably really don't, not quite. You'll be almost there, then it will surprise you a little bit more.
The lead is by far the least interesting character, which may be off-putting at first, but it's a risk that pays off. By the end, you'll be rooting for her!
Gorgeous scoring, rich visuals, and a stellar cast. I'll watch this again.

What an absolute load. There's nothing funny about it, and there's no feminist sensibility either. I expected both, and by about twenty minutes in was praying for either. Half an hour in, I was simply praying for someone to deal with the emergency situation the characters were in, which gets dragged out until nearly the end, and quite worried that the titular character would die. Then there's a whole Mr. Mom bit, which feels not only incredibly dated but incredibly patronizing, and finally — SPOILER WARNING — the minute the character's husband pays the least bit of normal attention to her, she's instantly, miraculously fine. UGH. ARE YOU KIDDING WITH THIS.
Utter trash with no redeeming qualities whatsoever. Criminal waste of a talented cast.
