beautiful film and story
A gorgeous film that manages to convey the emotion of childhood at its
more heart-wrenching. The central performance by Joanna Vanderham is
absolutely extraordinary, and reminds me of some of the greatest child
performances I've ever seen on film. As her parents, Julianne Moore and
Steve Coogan make you feel like you are right in the middle of the
tumult of family life. Directors Scott McGehee and David Siegel have
created a movie that feels like life, the vulnerability, the
abruptness, the comedy, the joy.
With intimacy at times almost startling, this is one of the best
adaptations of a novel by Henry James I've ever seen.
