    I had the unique pleasure of getting to see Rams at a small theater in Reykjavík while I was visiting Iceland this past summer. It was a beautiful movie that a few of the Icelanders I spoke to said represented the rural parts of their country accurately.

    • Joel–wow! What a special experience. The film is absolutely gorgeous, albeit unsettling. As a writer, I am impressed by the storytelling. I find myself contemplating the suspense that accrues as the relationship between the brothers is revealed through their interactions and town talk.

      • I was very immersed in the suspense in Rams as well. The movie I had seen right before Rams was Captain America: Civil War, and I remember thinking that even though superhero movies are full of epic action scenes and special effects, they still aren’t as gripping or exciting to me as smaller stories about families or relationships.
