Yesterday, I was underwhelmed by Leaving despite Kristin Scott Thomas’ great performance. Here is a much better movie with an even better Thomas performance. I’ve Loved You So Long was the best film of 2008. A sad woman (Thomas) is released from prison. She moves in with her sister, and her back story unfolds in multiple totally unanticipated surprises. A transformative film about loss and redemption.
One of my 10 Great Movies You Missed in the 2000s.
