Rating: 10/10

If you haven't seen Tumbledown yet, you are in for a treat. Rebecca Hall plays the widow of Hunter Miles, a fictional singer with a cult following. She has stacked enough wood for years of a comfortable widowhood--living among her husband's instruments and keepsakes in the lakeside cabin in Maine that they shared. She's forced from being a hermit by the brash academic (played by Jason Sudeikis) who appears on his European motorcycle to dig up biographical details on Hunter for his PhD dissertation. But Hunter's widow turns out to be more fascinating than the memory of Sudeikis' musical hero. And the rest is chemistry. We get to watch Jason Sudeikis and Rebecca Hall on a date at the town dump, at a family Easter gone wrong, and standing on a sheet of frozen ice surrounded by the crazy whale sounds of a thawing lake in the Maine woods. The rapport between Rebecca Hall and Jason Sudeikis is riveting. Their banter is smart and funny. And Damien Jurado's haunting tunes give the movie a depth that reverberates for days to come. The film is gorgeous, moving and entertaining.
