See my Best Picture (for Dickie Awards) page for why I love this movie so much (also my Instagram review & follow-up with deeper thoughts!), and to that I will add: Carey Mulligan MAKES this movie work.  Viola and Andra are PARTICULARLY incredible in their performances; but this less-flashy role has SO many highwire balancing acts to it, and I just can't applaud what Mulligan did with it enough.
