In Northern Italy in 1983, seventeen year-old Elio begins a relationship with visiting Oliver, his father's research assistant, with whom he bonds over his emerging sexuality, their Jewish heritage, and the beguiling Italian landscape.
Set over one summer, the film follows precocious six-year-old Moonee as she courts mischief and adventure with her ragtag playmates and bonds with her rebellious but caring mother, all while living in the shadows of Disney World.
Double crosses, adultery, murder, mistaken identity, and revenge ensue when a mysterious power player and his sultry wife hire a disgraced Los Angeles property broker to discreetly market and sell their Malibu villa.
Writer Steven Rogers, a long-time friend of Allison Janney, wrote the role of LaVona Golden with Janney in mind. He'd written several roles for Janney in the past, but other actresses ended up getting those parts. She later thanked Rogers in her acceptance speech for the Best Supporting Actress award at the 75th Golden Globes for convincing her to take the part. See more »
When Tonya Harding competed, song lyrics were not allowed in competition the way they are today. Although she included "Sleeping Bag" by ZZ Top in the 3d section of her 1991-1992 program, it was the music only. See more »
Margot Robbie and Allison Janney nailed their roles!
I didn't expect much going into this film... I'm not into figure skating or docu style movies (as per trailer), but I have to say, this one blew me away!
Margot Robbie and Allison Janney just nailed their roles! I'm sure this is Margot Robbie's best performance... she got right into her character. Craig Gillespie's outstanding directing contributes to the greatness of this film.
There isn't anything bad to critique here. I highly recommend seeing this as I'm sure you'll be getting more out of it than you'd expect. A well deserved 8.5 rounded up to a 9/10 from me!
