IN ONE SENTENCE, WHY SHOULD YOU BE EXCITED?

Filmmaker James Gray’s nostalgia-free study of 1980s America explores the stark racial and class divide with surprisingly winning results, in part thanks to the efforts of a fine cast that includes Oscar-winners like Anthony Hopkins, Anne Hathaway, and Jessica Chastain (in a small role as Maryanne “sister to Donald” Trump).
