SO GOOD OMG.
It's one of my top five of the year. Period. The acting was amazing - there was so much subtext under all the dialogue. Their mouths said one thing, their eyes said another - it made the emotions driving each of them hit so much harder. I'm pretty impressed with how well they told so much story in such little time - I can only imagine how much the book must've fleshed out the events. I'm usually disappointed with book-to-movie adaptations, but since I hadnt read the book, I wasnt comparing. I'm impressed. And in love with James McAvoy.
