This was fantastic, a sort of flipped script of a 70's crime thriller that follows the woman that gets left behind in a sea of trouble instead of her gangster/thief/killer husband. The characters are just so perfectly drawn and acted.

Rachel Brosnahan looks so much like Even Rachel Wood. Honestly, like her sister or something.

There is a lot of detail here in unexpected moments, like Jean struggling to move the heavy bodies around or dial the phone while stuck in a closet with the baby.

Oh, this finally came out. They filmed it around her in Pittsburgh last year and a friend of mine played "Dead Body" in it.

I enjoyed this, especially the ending. I mean wrestling an obese 70s car onto the open road while Aretha sings. That’s America.

Saw it last night and it's worth a watch but it's not as good as I'd hoped. The acting is very good but the script seems kind of unfocused and the whole thing feels about 15 minutes too long.

Man this was really nice. I enjoyed a lot about this, one thing is the theme of isolation and boredom of really emphasized, and how tough it would be to be ripped out of your home with just a baby.
