I think your enjoyment of this movie will be determined by what you expect from your movie- going experience. Do you expect to be on the edge of your seat, or do expect to relax and think about life? Do you want to be challenged, or be touched emotionally? These are things you should figure out before heading into the theater to see this movie because it's not to be taken lightly.
The Good: This movie is all about Casey Affleck and he does a good job. He conveys the range and depth of emotion that is critical to a drama of this nature. Without Casey Affleck, there is no movie. Lucas Hedges' performance effectively compliments that of Casey Affleck, allowing a unique sense of bonding between their characters to develop.
The Bad: Some scenes are slow and stagnant and I found myself becoming impatient on a few occasions. Comedy is incorporated into many scenes to relieve dramatic stress, but these instances don't always fulfill their purpose and can become awkward.
Things To Consider: Gentlemen, if you decide to see this movie with your significant other, prepare for tears. In fact, you might want to prepare for some tears on your end as well. It's hard to watch at times but is worth your time and money.
