Hillbilly Elegy ★½

amy adams and glenn close.... for my own sake i'm gonna pretend that it wasn't you two in this so that i don't cry myself to sleep tonight

this is so strangely bad, it has no heart for a film trying to have a lot of heart, and leaves you with a really weird message/no message at all.
with some flashback scenes that added nothing to the story, and characters who don't evolve throughout it, it massively lacks substance, and i spent the last hour waiting for it to be over. amy and glenn's acting was the best thing about it, but they certainly weren't able to distract from the emptiness of the screenplay/ the overall weird way that the story was told
