Everyone in the theatre was crying.

It might not be my favorite movie of 2015, but it deserves every award it gets. I can’t even bring myself to “review” it, if only because this is a movie beyond review. Sure, there are nitpicks that could be made, with the script and the side characters’ acting, but none of that matters. Because it distills the relationship between a single mother and her son down to its absolute purest form. That’s an accomplishment beyond review.

It makes you want to call your mom and tell her how appreciative you are of everything she’s ever done for you.
