Wow! Both my wife and I were taken by surprise on this one. We got it out of curiosity...not expecting that we would actually be so drawn in. Was like watching it in real time unfolding.
This one was worthy of awards it may never see. Ryan Gosling at the best we've seen in films we watched of his. Everyone was outstanding---even the children!!!! WOW!! My wife was esp impressed with the children's performances. Who could get that out of them?

At this point we see over 500 want to see this by library request...It is one to have a movies night party.
