Confusing, Quirky, Thought-provoking, Great acting, Entertaining

See it if You're curious about how they interweave Spinoza's philosophy within the life of a modern woman. Enjoyable acting, especially acting elderly

Don't see it if Two hours is too long for you to think about Spinoza's declarations... you don't want to leave the theater pondering his thoughts.
