Director: Josh Mond
Release: November 13th, 2015
I was more excited about this film before I knew that Cynthia Nixon and her character’s illness was a focal point of the story. I think that’s too much. I want to follow James, feel what he’s feeling, see what he’s dealing with. I don’t need him to then come home to a dying mother, adding that to his baggage, and weighing down the plot. Judging solely from the trailer of course, I think the director might have needed to pare down his message.
