I saw this film last night, with George Clooney and by the same director as Juno (look it up, I can’t be bothered to find a link, I’m on the tablet). A friend had recommended that very day and I was very curious to see it, considering the promising premises.
It’s a brilliant film, actors excellent, story makes you think, feel, learn and entertains you too, so ticks all the right boxes.
A few thoughts however remained with me afterwards. First of all, ok fine we mention a nice smile is important and yes, we are repeatedly shown that George Clooney has a nice smile (which he does, but you see what I mean).

My second thought was that the film was harsh. There are a lot of people out there who do not have a family
