This is easily one of my favorite films of the year. In fact, it is probably in my top 5 for 2019. Not only is the story incredible, but it is told very well by a cast that is second to none.
The acting in this movie is the best I've seen all year. Paul Walter Hauser, Sam Rockwell, and Kathy Bates are all getting votes from me in all of the awards groups that I vote for. They are individually fantastic, but together they are even better.
This is the kind of movie that pulls you in and keeps you engaged the entire time. It is compelling throughout and fast-paced. It's a 2 hour movie that feels like 45 minutes. There wasn't a single moment where I found myself pulled out of the story, or my mind was wondering around.
If you like crime dramas, this is a must-see movie. It is one of the best in that genre to come along in several years. It's the kind of movie that will make you feel all sorts of emotions, and you will feel how high the stakes are even if you already know the outcome of the true story.
There are four or five award-worthy films being released over the next few weeks. This is one of that bunch, and one that you should make time to see as soon as possible.
