This should have been a better movie. It has all of the right ingredients for one. The cast is excellent and the director is talented. The worst thing is the film is long and it drags a lot of the time. Really, you could consider this a three part movie. Ryan Gosling’s movie. Bradley Cooper’s movie and their children’s movie. Each segment felt like it’s own film and they were interesting but it felt like the movie would start and end and start and end. It was beautifully shot though, very pretty.
