On a technical level, the movie is incredibly convincingly filmed. On an emotional level Sandra Bullock and George Clooney play it just right. Clooney delivers a great performance, as always, but Sandra Bullock is in another stratosphere and delivers an Oscar worthy performance. She is the heart of the movie and gives it just that.
I often found myself on the edge of my seat, hoping that against all odds, somehow this would end well. By the end, I was an emotional wreck but uplifted in a way seldom done by a movie. Highly recommended.
