Three sentence movie reviews: The Weight of Water
Kathryn Bigelow is known for her adrenaline-packed movies, and so this surprised me with its subtly. Two stories of women and relationships play out over the run-time and both are fascinating to scratch away the layers. Sarah Polley was her usual good self and Catherine McCormak’s performance* was also quite good too.
Cost: free from work-sponsored Netflix
Where watched: at home
*You wouldn’t know it from the poster, but she’s the main character. She’s the one in the lower left corner, kissing Sean Penn with her back to the camera.

I really hate this poster. The movie is about the women, not Sean Penn!
