Goofs

The "knock-off Eames chair" in Dr. Judith's office is not based on any design by mid-century designers Charles and Ray Eames. The chair is a chaise lounge designed by famed modernist architect Charles-Édouard Jeanneret-Gris, commonly known by his nickname "Le Corbusier". The design pre-dates most of the Eames' designs by several decades. See more »

Seriously underrated and overlooked movie
7 March 2019 | by ekebySee all my reviews

A nice to surprise to find this. Well-crafted, a really original story (worth points just for that), with one of the best casts you could ask for.

I'll watch anything with Catherine O'Hara. I could say the same thing about Amy Poehler, or Adam Scott. Or Jane Lynch. And here they are, all in the same picture, along with the always, always reliable Richard Jenkins.

I'm also surprised to find how polarizing this movie is. People seem to ether hate it or love it. I can't quite understand the haters, except that maybe they wanted something more obvious. I wouldn't call this movie subtle, but it's perhaps a little too worldly and knowing for some. Not for me. I loved it.
