I just wanted to say that you are a great actress and I have watched every movie that you have ever made. I wish I could send a picture because my grandmother used to call me little Julia Roberts because she said I looked like you. You are a great person because you have never let money change you. You act just like a regular person that lives paycheck to paycheck.

Oh my god, this is some of the best, most nuanced work, I’ve ever seen from any actor! It’s a compelling story for me, with an 18 yr old daughter who just left for college and a 21 yr old daughter in college on the east coast. But...your eyes...your eyes said SO much. And the end, when you walked into the house, with your left hand clenched and your right hand sort of splayed open because YOU DID WHAT YOU HAD TO DO and just dropped it and walked out.

I also loved your friend, who immediately knew how to release you. It’s a really good story and I kept watching and thinking “Well, the Hollywood industry would never have made it: good on Netflix.”

I think some people won’t be able to watch it cuz it’s not the typical Julia Roberts romp, but this whole movie was achingly beautiful. My day just stopped till it was over. And I had to watch the reveal 3 times to really be able to leave the movie. I had to write this in order to breathe deeply again.

When I watched the credits, I got it. The director of photography truly, deeply knows the passion and power and quiet strength you have. And that a woman can have when she is deeply connected to her child.

BTW, the scene at the end where he’s driving down the road with the long, white fence on the left: @Danny Moder: was that supposed to remind me of the end of “Conspiracy Theory?” Because I wasn’t thinking about that movie at all, but then I did.

No, I’m not a crazy stalker and I don’t even watch that many movies. But a choice few really stick with me.

Thank you all for making this movie.

Sincerely,
Janet
