Shirley

This was such a unique way to tell a story, or rather a story in a story.  I can’t think of another movie quite like it.  I love when something happens in a movie where it forces the user to reconsider everything that had happened earlier in a new light.  Beyond that, the acting by the three leads is exceptional.  Elisabeth Moss is this generation’s Meryl Streep.  I recently saw Capote and was distracted by Hoffman’s portrayal for the whole movie.  Moss is nearly unrecognizable in this role and it is completely believable.
