anarresti's rating of the film Maine

Laia Costa is so expressive, so enticing and charming. Any screen is filled with her motions, her subtleties, her sudden changes in emotion. The way she ties her hair, the way she looks for a reaction. The tenuous balancing of inward feeling and outward reach. Her face lingers in my mind, still. Could the low rating be due the the dulness of the other main character? For me, the contrast worked. And the silence, too.
