the redmayne road

I was lucky enough to catch this at Toronto, and I went in with high expectations given the cast. With regards to that every actor turns in an outstanding performance.

The one frustration is that since this is an ensemble/episodic movie some of the supporting roles are not as juicy as one might like, but that just serves to highlight the Moretz lead, which is impressive.

I really enjoyed the episodic narrative and they way the scenic rural landscape is a backdrop to a far from picture perfect life.

Finally, Ray McKinnon is in a scene that is really up there with the Hopper/Walken scene in True Romance for its combination of tension and humor. I am sure everyone will have a different favorite scene though - there are many to choose from.
