In A Word: Quality!
Quality Concept, Quality Writing, Quality Directing, Quality Acting, Quality Soundtrack! If this movie doesn't win an Academy Award the Hollywood establishment is simply beyond hope!
Whenever I see Richard Jenkins' name on a production I stop and take a close look. He's the sort of actor who is so good at his job that it doesn't seem like "acting" at all. Thus when I noticed that he was part of the cast in Lullaby I pressed enter on my Apple TV control and settled back to enjoy the ride.
And what a ride it proved to be!
Terms like Gut Wrenching only hint at the roller coaster ups and downs of a script beyond excellent and words like "real" are so spot on that even the most rabid cliché hater must of needs use that descriptor...
One wonders how anyone could survive the writing of this script, or the directing of this movie, or the acting out of these roles.
Difficult conundrums faced with hesitancy but ultimately depicted with brutal honesty and yet delicate sensitivity!
The sort of movie everyone can be proud of being involved in...and that includes even the act of watching it.
Bravo, and thanks to all involved!
