Andrew Haigh’s fantastic movie from 2023 is a great example of non-linear, open-ended storytelling that packs quite an emotional punch. One you won’t soon forget.

Love, regret, shame, grief—in other words, the human experience—give the film its universal appeal, albeit one that will require a nearby box of tissues. There will be tears, but their source may surprise you.

I love this kind of storytelling—it’s as if you have access to a window into the most private reaches of the aching pain and beauty of what it means to be human. All told in a kind of fever dream where reality itself becomes a fragile, malleable construct.

It’s heartening to see films like this released. Highly recommended—you won’t see anything else quite like it.
