This movie looked great. It was pretty good and definitely worth seeing - but not great.
Acting is solid. The idea is very unique - I was told the actress that plays Ruby is actually the writer of the screenplay. That puts a whole interesting twist on the entire thing.

Definitely worth the ticket price - especially considering the other junk out right now.

Dano's performance is galvanizing and vulnerable, simultaneously...
