This is not a feel-good movie. But it is a master class in acting. It is a haunting fictional story that is all too true. As with great writing, it takes us into the labyrinth of human nature, rife with emotional hunger, desperation and rage.
It's time to start asking: what will win the Oscar for best film next year? Or maybe it's too early for such questions, but I've just returned from the Toronto International Film Festival, so forgive me for jumping the gun.
