A47's rating of the film The Romantics

Bourgeois problems but raw real emotion. What the first act of Melancholia would have looked like if it were told with articulation. Profoundly built on a bed of nostalgia. Powerful character moments vocalized through well-written dialogue that remains real but focused. It's like, if Who's Afraid of Virginia Wolf and A Mid Summer Nights Dream had an illegitimate child. Great example good of deus ex machina.
