Interesting story with plenty of good roles for women – which were all well differentiated characters and well-played by interesting and compelling actresses. The men were mostly interchangeable, but I didn’t mind that at all. Interesting staging and visual storytelling as well. Humor was integrated into the drama and never felt forced.
What I didn't like
There were some technical issues that took me out of it a couple of times – I could see what they were going for, but they just didn’t quite make it by a tiny smidge. I thought the story, while interesting and compelling, could have benefited from a touch more focus. I’m not a fan of VO letter-reading between characters who are separated in general, but it was used very effectively in the end, so it gets a pass from me this time.
My overall impression
I was entertained and moved, and we kept talking about it for the rest of the evening. The quick pacing really served the story and kept us in the audience engaged. It’s an epic in a tiny theater and well worth seeing.
