Overwrought nine-tenth-life crisis drama in which even a great cast — Michael Caine, Harvey Keitel, Rachel Weisz, and Paul Dano — cannot create a lick of sympathy for the artistic and existential turning points on arty display. Children speak with adult precision and wisdom; grownups don’t say anything tenable at all.
(My Ratings posts are a quick way for me to share my reaction to a film. This post will be updated if/when I ever write a review. Feel free to discuss the movie in depth in the comments section.)
