Was it just me or nothing happens?


It is described as a thriller yet there is nothing of the sort. Nothing happens in this movie at all.

Slow burn drama that could have been done in half an hour.

Not a Thriller... It's a drama...

I wouldn't say nothing happens... It's a movie about a man trying to create the family he never had and make a name for himself and a legacy, but in the end he is broken by circumstance, by his overreaching and by his self-centred wife...

Icarus?

It does have subtext and yes, I too noticed that he is aspiring to be more than he is and his wife pulls him down.
