The Whale (2023)

Darren Aronofsky directs Brendan Fraser, Sadie Sink and Hong Chau in this drama about a dying, obese, housebound man trying to connect with his teen daughter.

Natalie got a lot more out of this than me. I think we both appreciated Fraser’s performance and it was nice to see a sweet dude win the Best Actor Oscar this year. But the movie itself suffers from a few gargantuan bug bears of mine… filmed play, too gloomy in terms of lighting, hard to square moments of levity, spoof worthy grand standing.
