Default 45 Years

I watched 45 Years on Netflix last night and while it is slow moving, it does tell a strong story about choices we make in relationships and the opportunities that passed us by. Chock full of symbolism and keen insight on the psyches of both the male and female protagonists. Well acted, too.

I enjoyed it. I think my opinion would fall in the minority, but I think it is one of the stronger modern films that Criterion has chose to release. I liked it better than the recent Assayas films, better than Phoenix, and better than the parts of Certain Woman that I did see.
