This is a very contemplative film. It is shot with beautiful symmetry.
A peaceful, thoughtful film that serves as a welcome reprieve from blockbuster movies
What a beautiful film. People don’t make movies like this anymore.
It could be boring but it is thought provoking and tender and works through the two leads. A relatable film that has a lot of heart
Really well made coming of age movie. It was really well acted and written and also beautifully shot.
Quiet film questioning one’s place in life, the desire to be more and a resistance to complacency. Though leaves something to be desire.
Calm and aesthetic movie. Slow, but kind and at the same time heartbreaking. Recommend watching alone in bad weather. Gets better after time
Finds beauty in the silence between the story. The closest a film comes to being a painting, but in a good way
There is the untraditional characters & a lot of clever visuals but what moves me about Columbus is its push & pull conversations about art.
Was underwhelmed by the pace and message of this film. Stakes seemed low and had an air of pretention to it, but a well produced film.
