  • Poster: C-


Choosing a scene from a film can be a positive step in building a rapport with the audience. It can also be a bit too pushy for its own good. That's one of the biggest problems with this one.

  • Trailer: C


As much as the talent involved in the film looks spectacular and it got some decent reviews, the trailer is so unexceptional and filled with cliched moments that I can't bring myself to wanting to see it.

Oscar Prospects:

I would say unlikely, but one never knows how a film like this will play in the intervening months.
