    Released on Netflix today. 83 on metacritic and raves for Kathryn Hahn, the second most underrated working actress. I think she could surprise as SAG, considering it’s an earlyish release, SAG loves Netflix, she has raves, and they can be random like that sometimes.

    I may agree with you, but it’s a crowded year in Lead Actress. I would love to see Hahn get awards recognition and I haven’t even watched the trailer for this movie, but it’s too competitive a year, I think.

    I loved this movie! I was highly anticipating Hahn’s performance, which totally lived up to and surpassed my very high expectations but I was surprised how good the movie as a whole was and how good the rest of the cast was. Hahn could definitely end up being my personal winner this year, and Giamatti and Kayli Carter are both worthy of oscar noms for this. Molly Shannon is terrific as well.

    I wonder if Netflix will ever consider campaigning movies like this for emmys instead of oscars. As far as I know it’s eligible for both, at least that’s what Anne Thompson said about Mudbound. Unless she was wrong about that Netflix could single handedly make the TV movie category relevant again and completely dominate the category, they just have to have to desire to do so.

    Moving film. Kathryn Hahn and Paul Giamatti were fantastic together. I’d say that its best Oscar hopes lie with Tamara Jenkins in Best Original Screenplay since she’s managed that before. If this gets any level of Netflix campaigning priority next year, then it might manage some attention for Hahn after its breakthrough for “Mudbound.” But for now, I’m only predicting Jenkins in an increasingly competitive field.

    Brilliant movie. Netflix better campaign Hahn and Giamatti. Shannon was fantastic to. My second favorite film of the year. Absolutely hilarious as well. Very personal. Loved it.

    Watched this over the weekend and really liked it. A small but captivating and moving film. This was a great look at a topic not often covered in film and with these personal touches, the film felt extremely lived in and the little details made all the difference here. The screenplay was the star here and I would support a run for Tamara Jenkins in that category. Her directorial effort here was also very good. Kathryn Hahn and Paul Giamatti were damn near perfect for these roles and never once felt inauthentic. They each got strong moments but kept it in check to fit the world Jenkins had built. Kayli Carter was great in a breakout role, and Molly Shannon continues to impress in dramatic turns (her performance in “Other People” already made it clear she’s ready for the big leagues). I’m glad a small adult indie like this is on Netflix so that it is easily accessible for audiences. If it picks up some awards buzz, people can easily turn to Netflix to catch the film, which is great. So let’s keep our fingers crossed!

    Kathryn Hahn is on the board with Gotham so hopefully the indie spirits follow.

    i liked the acting but i hated the movie … I was so uninterested in them getting a child and felt they were the worst … I do think Hahn and Shannon were great
