A – (excellent) Deserved its Oscars: good storyline and ending, gripping to the last minute. Great story: didn’t know what would happen next: very funny in places and good characters. I can see why she won an Oscar! Enthralling and intelligent, emotionally charged but also with a wry humour: excellent! Absolutely brilliant! Tragic but funny and clever. A real rollercoaster of a movie – bittersweet great dialogue – moving the audience from laugh out loud one moment to such pathos the next: Reminded us that life doesn’t always have a happy ending and time may not heal: no doubt will provoke many thoughts over the coming days. Pacey, engaging and ultimately redemptive tale. An excellent film: surprising all the way: Frances Mcdormand as brilliant as always and perhaps no definite ending was more realistic. Wonderful characterisation, harrowing, funny, a satisfactory ending, should have won Best Picture. Amazing – second time I’ve seen this – moving, funny, etc. Terrific: occasional mumbling didn’t detract from a wonderful film. So many damaged people. Excellent acting: do like an ending! Even better seeing it for second time. Brilliant: superb acting by main actress. Powerful story: shocking and surprising in equal measure: Sam Rockwell was, as always, an enjoyable watch. Well deserved awards: cleverly ;
