…that out of darkness leads up to light.

I avoided Elizabeth Chai Vasarhelyi and Jimmy Chin‘s Nyad (Netflix, 10.20 theatrically, 11.3 streaming) during Telluride because I was told over and over that Annette Bening‘s titular performance amounted to a tough sit. Now, having seen the trailer, I’m seeing a possible parallel between Nyad and Raging Bull. It seems clear that both Bening and costar Jodie Foster go for it hard, and that Foster…let’s wait and see but she may deliver like Joe Pesci.
