“ Great character development. Loved Andrew Dice Clay's performance. Who'd a thunk it!! Soundtrack and cinematigraphy are incredible It was fun getting Woody outside of NYC filming and see him take a dive into the Bay. I was blown away by Cate's range of emotions and the fragility of her character. So many great, great lines would be worth seeing again.
