A critically acclaimed film which offers pure
drama (without a background score) it relies on a simple yet effective
technique of building tension and strain.
The 3 principal cast members have displayed a layered
brilliance in their performances and have been nominated for, and won some
awards as well. Steve Carrell, Mark Ruffalo and Channing Tatum sport altered
physical features and body language. The lingering silences and soft hushed
tones make for many awkward moments.
Director Bennett Miller has captured the film with sweeping
cinematography, which creates a metaphorical imagery. It is very technically
sound in its approach and is a distinct runner for the awards, and audiences.
