Truth, art, power, and inspiration are all explored in this artfully structured story. The hefty 3 hours feels light, giving enough space for a story so well woven that the fabric deserves a lingering gaze. The acting is nuanced, and the characters dimensional.Worth the large screen for the immersion that it brings into these lives.
