Was hoping we’d have more old ppl in this screening. Have lots of thoughts on this but still processing. I do like how straight forward the story is (compared to Hereditary for example; not that H isn’t straight forward but there’s a few moving parts in that one). This feels simpler yet just as heavy around dealing with trauma, support systems, and grief. It’s a wild movie that I want to see again but not in the theater.
