We’d be lying if we said May December wasn’t giving us the ick. Because the relationship at its center is …eh, not exactly a healthy relationship. But we’ll give the movie this, it’s not trying to make it seem like it is. It’s basically an exploration of this frankly disturbing relationship from a third-person POV.
That part is interesting, we won’t deny it. And Natalie Portman and Julianne Moore are certainly the actresses to carry this back and forth between two women, especially considering that Natalie Portman’s character is basically just meant to be kinda creepy. It’s giving Black Swan. Of course, the rest will depend on how the movie does with a subject that most movies would just skirt around. And we’re willing to give it a chance, but we will enter into this very cautiously because, yeah.
Sixth grader, okay? Sixth grader. Let’s just keep that in mind as we look at the adult man on screen. SIXTH GRADER.
