I mean this is a classic for a reason. I didn't love the religious/moral crises aspect, which I don't remember as strongly from the novel. Great performances though all around, it's tough to have everyone be a standout when the cast is so large and involved, but they do a solid job. Jessica Chastain is of course great, Toby Jones is no slouch either. One thing that stuck out more to me is how dark and closed in the train scenes felt after they got stuck. I know it's the point that they are all stuck together, but thanks to set design and the way it's shot it really comes through.
