Trivia

Newcomer Millicent Simmonds sent a recording of her audition to director Todd Haynes who in turn sent it on the Julianne Moore who instantly approved of the 14-year-old. Millicent, who is deaf in real life, had to communicate on-set primarily through American Sign Language interpreters. See more »

Incredibly slow and pointless for most of the film
3 October 2017 | by See all my reviews

Went to see the film without knowing anything about it except Julianne Moore being in it - normally a strong sell for me.

I was exceptionally close to walking out of the theater for over the first hour. Not because the performances were bad or anything, it was just... pointless. Devoid of drama, impetus, momentum. There was nothing. It was like watching a sophomore film-maker discovering his camera for the first time, and just "filming neat things".

There's about 25 minutes of good film in here, but that's what they should have made - a 25 minute short film.

Those 25 minutes were touching, but not as much as the thought of getting 2 hours of my life back.
