The Death and Life of John F. Donovan (2018, D: Dolan) S: Harington



A decade after the death of an American TV star, a young actor reminisces the written correspondence he once shared with the former, as well as the impact those letters had on both their lives.

Reviews out of TIFF last year were terrible. Chastain and Thorne were cut from the movie.

New trailer:

I'm curious if Dolan re-worked this after the disastrous reactions at TIFF. Mind you, even if he did, the whole concept seems ridiculous and beyond self-indulgent.

Wonder how they got all those big names for this turd.

Jacob Tremblay with his wimpy voice and horrible acting was too much for me.

The Directors previous films were pretty good. What Ready To Wear was for Altman or Four Rooms was to Tarantino this movie is for him
