This woman is the dumbest bitch. But seriously, I love how Jane Campion is considered one of the most feminist directors in the industry and her most famous film is about an incredibly irrational women with no fucking voice being swept off her feet by a guy who ransoms her piano for sexual favours.

A well-acted and heart breaking 19th-century drama that says a lot about the way women were viewed, mistreated, and controlled by men during its time period.

Had been wanting to see it for Holly Hunter's performance. There were some ok moments, but mainly it was a disappointment. I had been building it up in my mind for so long, I expected her performance to be miraculous, but somehow it fell short of what I perceived it could be.
