- Why should you watch it?
Yes, she disappears at some point int he movie, but it has nothing to do with Gone Girl (a movie that I am dying watching to, just a couple more of days and then I will!). It is not the kind of disappearance that we all are expecting. No. This is something more… realistic.
This is a really realistic movie about a couple who fall apart because of a concrete reason, which I am not gonna tell here. You will have to find it out by yourselves when you watch the movie 😉 This movie is really, really realistic. It is not that silly dolly thing that we were used to for such a long time. It is true as the truth itself. True as life. True as it could happen to anyone. Really worth your time!!
Furthermore, James and Jessica are brilliant in it! Both of them!! They do an amazing job in this movie. You feel connected with them. You feel what they feel. Although at the beginning you feel like, why all this? Then, at one point, you understand, and even if you have never ever been in their situation, you feel connected with them and their emotions.
