Hazard it was shot in sequence? Unsteady, declamatory acting and directing for first hour but eventually finds its feet.
Still looks over-strategized to me; winds up feeling rigid, long. But many fascinating moments. Chastain really builds.
VOR:②Albert Nobbs Syndrome: tough, long-nursed passion project took years to finance, then got filmed in a jiff. Glimmers of even richer film that could've been. Still a worthy stab.
