| Excellent dual character study
A rich and uniquely set dual-character study, written with nuance and wonderfully acted. Small establishing scenes convey subtle dynamics (see arriving at the hotel), long scenes of dialogue mesmerize with both simmering and overflowing tension (see drinks with Nathanial; the post-acorn blow-up then amazing switch to happy phone call), and flashbacks add intrigue to the present-day plot (though it's mostly dissolved with the final breakdown-the film should've ended with the award presentation).
