What I like:
1. The movie is 2 hours and 20 minutes long, and you could hardly tell. The story is so well-narrated and well-told, the dialogues are so interesting that I was glued to the screen the entire time
2. I never knew Jessica Chastain is that hot. Like, smoking, burning, almost distracting hot. Gotta applaud the stylists too; the makeup and clothing were top notch.
3. The park bench scene is one of the more moving scenes I have seen in recent times.
4. I learned a thing or two about poker.
