Twenty years after their notorious tabloid romance gripped the nation, a married couple buckles under the pressure when an actress arrives to do research for a film about their past. Blending melodramatic overtures with a heartbreakingly humane embrace, this stylish and shrewd character study from masterful director Todd Haynes is a spellbinding dive into moral ambiguity.
