such a nasty woman | by maryann johanson

45 Years movie rating: green light

by MaryAnn Johanson


Keenly observed drama about a couple on the eve of their 45th wedding anniversary whose relationship is shaken by an unexpected blast from the past. A career-best performance by Charlotte Rampling culminates in a final moment that is powerfully stunning.
