ig_____or's rating of the film Ain't Them Bodies Saints

Tender, nostalgic, beautifully shot and scored, this movie has a rather simple plot but it does make you care for the gracious Ruth - Rooney Mara is impeccable - and her adorable daughter. While the final act felt a little anticlimactic, it was still sad and a bit emotional to see how this love story was simply not meant to be. It made me interested in seeing what Lowery will do next.
