Intelligent Plot, Well Executed, More Editing Was Required.
Overall, this is a fine film populated with A-list talent. They all live up to their reps and deliver fine performances here. Still, they can only do what's on the page and it's obvious this play, and the consequential film, both required more editing. In a striking attempt to avoid all plot holes, the play becomes misdirected and convoluted. To make matters worse, the dialog is muddled and confused in places. Beyond these things, all-in-all, it's worth the price of a ticket. Take along your patience though, you'll need it for the payoff.
