    It's the Eddie Redmayne one right ? Yeah, if you want to bet on an Edison movie at the Oscars, Eddie's is a much better bet.

And that was a misstep for the writer.
    I'm surprised how good Waterston role really was-- very spunky, entertaining, instigating, but also has a real good scene later on

    At least the script tries fleshing out the importance of these women in the men's lives-- but the tone and plot is so weird, I'm not sure how well its going to translate onscreen

    Yep, perhaps the silver lining of that messy script (And I can see Waterston being the MVP of the cast by critics, regardless of the final reception of the film). Neverthless, very missed oportunity to do something different thought. A women approach of the script would have been an interesting and humanistic story beyond the male figures with their imperfections, instead of the male centric fight of a genius being an asshole to anyone.

    Very true-- the Academy is changing and adapting to the times and the likes of Dunkirk and Darkest Hour will quench their thirst for bait, so I dont see the initiative in rallying around this

    Whole movie just feels like another Founder to me (high 60s, low 70s on MC, low box office, weak release) Possible noms for tech and maybe some traction for Cumberbatch

    I feel like Darkest Hour could so easily go the same way. It just feels so out of step with what they're into right now lol
