Don't see it if you look for something more profound and with substances

Disappointing, Confusing, Banal
June 29th, 2022

See it if you are Amy Adams fan, or like a play with some sort of (superficial) movie quality (with some touch of original scores and mixed media)

Don't see it if you do not like the backdrop screen seemingly playing some irrelevant clips, or the story was divided evenly among mother, daughter & son

Intense, Great acting, Overrated
June 29th, 2022

See it if you are Mark Rylance fan, into british dark comedy like Little Britain or Transpotting

Don't see it if you do not like actor throwing stuffs (including liquid) to the audience, or if you expect to see a serious drama play

Banal, Dated, Funny
March 9th, 2022

See it if old-school nostalgic comedy collections with a bit exaggerated acting. Just a relaxed afternoon tea with some laughs

Don't see it if you are into in-dept thought provoking comedies and seeing a play with three acts integrated well with each other and timely adaption

Great singing, Quirky, Disappointing
December 25th, 2021

See it if You like great singing (especially those two girls playing Marianne Laine n Mrs. Neilsen), enjoy Bob Dylan’s songs.

Don't see it if Quirky plots, some characters being too dramatic, having high expectations thinking it as good as Ferrymen
