Leo Brady reviews “The Nest” on AMovieGuy.com

Cinema that revolves around the subject of marriage is often an endlessly complex topic. It’s complex in Fatal Attraction, or Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?, it’s complex in Paul Dano’s deeply emotional Wildlife, or Gone Girl, and on, and on. Which is partially why I found Sean Durkin’s new drama The Nest to be a fascinating and unique take on marital discourse. It helps when you have two juggernaut actors, Carrie Coon and Jude Law as the wife and husband roles, playing off one another as if it’s a theater game of chess. The Nest is about a family, the facades we put up to project happiness, and the financial choices that can send happiness crashing down. The Nest puts a new spin on the dysfunctional family drama.
