Where'd You Go, Bernadette might well be one of those films that the people who love the book will only ever mutter darkly about. But for me, who just wanted to see a mostly decent movie with a few moments of true inspiration, it worked pretty well.

She has chosen this life, and she rejects it. We should all have such woes.

Sometimes idiosyncratic directors do surprisingly accessible and moving work when paired with more structured material and a strong and willing star, and so it is with Richard Linklater and "Where'd You Go, Bernadette."

Linklater's visuals are... unfussy, direct; as always, he creates felt intimacy among people.
