| Powerful drama with great acting but loses itself as the movie goes on.
3 out of 5 stars.

Pieces of a Woman is a fair drama film about a married couple Martha (Vanessa Kirby) and Sean (Shia Labeouf). As Martha is about to give birth at home. Calls for a midwife to help out. But things go horrible when the baby does not make it. Leaving the couple going through loss, grief, and struggling to move on.

It was a decent story. Which can be relatable to cases with couples dealing with loss. It is a powerful drama film. Starts out great for the first hour or so. The direction is raw and does not hold back. The birthing scene is tough and filled with emotions. Can be a tearjerker.

The performances is great with the cast. Vanessa Kirby did a phenomenal job with her role. And rest of the cast did a great job. Dealing with the struggle of loss.

I did find the music score by Howard Shore to be kind of disappointing. Making the film feel kind of slow and tedious. Which after the first hour. It does feel slow moving. They could have edited the long running time better.

It is a striking drama with great performances. But does feel a little dragged out. And long.
