Review: It has a certain visual charm, but it’s also about as simplistic as you can possibly get, even thematically.

Review: You can always expect a lot of emotional heft in a Steven Spielberg film and the barest hint of that is present, but it seems to present the whole film to the audience without a desire to increase their interest over time. It lays it all out there and that might not be enough to sell it.
This should be one of the major Oscar players. With a Toronto win for the audience award, a Best Picture nomination is all but guaranteed. This is a movie about moviemaking from a wunderkind director that never lost his mojo, so it should be a key competitor, especially for Michelle Williams.
