This movie was therapy
15 September 2015 | by ohrubydearSee all my reviews

I am bothered considerably to note how familiar I found this story. It's not the first film to portray a young romance filled with passion and volatility. But most lack the authenticity of 6 Years.

The characters are RAW. There is no hero here. Not since Blue Valentine have I seen characters expose such intimate flaws, while still maintaining empathy.

Credit for this should be awarded to the improv heavy style and insanely talented actors. Rosenfield is effortless perfection. His bargaining pleas were heartfelt and his retaliations so cold. Farmiga shone as both victim and aggressor. The grief and the rage and regret in her face felt far too real.

I think this movie will gain more favour with those who find it relate-able. Well worth the watch for me.
