Pieces of a Woman (out Dec 31) opens with a 23-minute unedited scene of a young woman giving birth (all before the opening title) and then transforms into a character study centered around a tragedy. There are clunky elements (eg the legal case) and too many subplots but Vanessa Kirby’s lead performance makes it a film to remember. Grade: B+.
