A movie that's so demanding yet with exceptional acting work
10 December 2014 | by SeraphionSee all my reviews

The movie really push the viewers' edge in telling it's story. It kind of run on a badly too stable mood for all the entire two hour run time. The story gets to be that frustrating because it kind of uses the weirdest editing style I have ever seen. It makes one feels a bit thrown off in watching this movie. It took me some time to notice that the story flow actually uses the alternating back and forth flow direction. I learned that this movie is actually the cinema release of the two versions Him and Her, each at about 90 and 100 minutes. Well, considering from this movie's atmosphere, that would have been a pretty stressful time to spend by watching those movies. But on the other hand, the acting work is surprisingly a great work in overall, especially by the two lead cast James McAvoy and Jessica Chastain. They both exhibit really nice character involvement in those engaging scenes of strong emotion play. I really like how James played Conor when he has an argument with his friend at the bar. Jessica Chastain did a great job in portraying the difficult emotions Eleanor has.
