This is a tour de force for Carey Mulligan. Indeed she plays a promising young woman. In fact she is so in character she was hard to recognize at times. There is Oscar buzz about her performance and it is well deserved. The “Me too” movement should be pleased. A spotlight is being aimed at the mistreatment of young women by immature young men – or men of any age. I won’t spoil it, the ending is unusual and surprising.

Tom Hanks shines again as the principal player in this western. So does his eventual sidekick who steals your heart in this must – see flick. The ragged edges of the old west are here. But there is a warm hearted ending. Tom plays the Tom Brokaw of the Old West.

Pieces of a Woman Saturday, Jan 9 2021 

A gripping film with a redemptive ending. If you’re pregnant , I’d maybe pass this up. As careful as “Call the Midwife” in portraying childbirth accurately; it seemed even more immediate and painful before and after the birth. The female lead is very very good and is paired with Shia Lebeouf- who shows us more than once that men can cry. I would say it is a woman’s film. My husband said it was painful to watch.
