I watched this movie while on my journey through films about writers... what a gigantic disappointment. The screenplay was unnatural and better suited for the stage. It actually ended up hurting the performances. Though there was an attempt to touch on heart-wrenching topics, it came across as overkill..

It's score brings out more emotion of each frame and camera work was detailed. It's pacing however and back and forth direction was not as pleasant an experience. It's most glaring strength were the three leads, especially Kidman who deservedly won an Academy Award. Screenplay …
