It's been quite a hot topic in the States, suggest a read online first - you'll either love it or not.

IMDb.com has a good review on the front page, clicking on more reviews shows many negative ones, at least on that first page... yet the score is a high 7.8/10.
Many of the professional critics loved it, but some see it as a cheap imitation of past great(?*) efforts even though it's got a good cast who act well.

I had very high expectations for this movie although I'm always scared of Oscar-winning "arty" type movies and - for me personally - this movie was a total waste of my time.

I have to stress that tastes differ but even my one friend who almost exclusively watches "arty" type movies said she has nothing good to say about it.
