*Honestly I knew almost nothing about this before watching it.
*All I knew is that people said it was really well done but very sad.
*I decided to go ahead and check this out though since Casey Affleck won for it.
*This is first film I have seen directed by Kenneth Lonergan although I saw his Adventures of Rocky and Bullwinkle movie that was dreadful.
*I guess he learned from that mistake with this one.
*Anyways let's see what all this fuss is about.
*The acting is phenomenal specifically from Casey Affleck of course.
*The whole story is fresh and interesting.
*It's very emotionally draining.
*The timeline was a bit annoying to keep track of.
*I think the nephew could have been better as he just seemed typical to me.
I think it was worth checking out mostly because of Casey Affleck. The story pretty emotional and I wasn't expecting to be so drained after watching it. Still it was a good movie. I would say check it out if you are in a really good mood or plan to watch something emotionally uplifting afterwards.
