Noah Lethbridge's rating of the film Francine

Sorry, there's a lot of great stuff going on, but there just isn't enough movie here. Melissa Leo is fantastic. I love the animals, the location (Hudson Valley, NY), the idea, and many of the shots. It just didn't come together for me. Shame, because I feel like I wanted this to work so much better than it did.
