Review: While the simple effort does have thematic relevance. The lack of background detail and excessively vacant space makes for a forgettable design.
Trailer Rating: C+

Review: The trailer doesn’t go anywhere. It shows off one long tracking shot of our central figure walking aimlessly through what appears to be either a hippy enclave or a homeless camp. Altogether, the whole doesn’t present a very compelling picture.
With outstanding word out of Toronto, the film has managed to find itself in the hunt for several Oscar nominations. Is the Academy ready to give McDormand a third Oscar, though? I doubt it since her second win was so recent.
