    Was so excited for this and absolutely hated it. Almost walked out of the theater, but it was a screening. I feel like the trailer totally misleads what this turns out to be and Naomi Watts was the worst.

    It's at least better than Dallas Buyers Club and I probably got as much out of it as I did Wild. It's not particularly good but Vallée at least knows how to get good performances. It's like a bunch of movies in one and the focus is luckily on the most purely entertaining option (the surrogate father relationship of Davis and the kid). It's heavy handed but is endearing enough that I didn't hate it.
