Jon Hamm, Ellen Burstyn and more star in director Mark Pellington's look at loss
"Nostalgia" is an effective portrait of lives lived, told through shifting stories that examine the various ways in which we categorize our memories.
Review: ‘Nostalgia’ is an unrushed poem with a great cast
One of the first images in the film "Nostalgia" is of an heirloom necklace dangling on the neck of a diner waitress. One of the last images is of a massive puffy cloud, ever shifting in the wide sky.
Between these symbols of permanence and flux is a deeply meditative movie about time, loss and the stuff we fiercely hold onto along the way. "Nostalgia" is thoughtful and lyrical, an unrushed poem with a first-rate cast.
