This 'n' That

Is an extraordinary film.  Superbly written by Emma Donoghue, based upon her novel of the same name, and directed by Lenny Abrahamson.  A gifted artist, to say the least.  The entire cast, including the smallest of roles, all deserve Oscars as well as the film itself.  Brie Larson and Jacob Tremblay, who portray mother and son, should win Oscars this coming Sunday when the awards are handed out.  And Joan Allen is a treasure.  It comes near to being the best film this writer has ever seen.  Given it's title, the previews that have been shown, it is absolutely nothing like what one would expect it to be.
