I honestly don't know why I keep buying movies on this platform because Google clearly doesn't care about their presentation. This is a great film, but I'm removing a star because there are scenes with Russian dialogue and ASL that only get subtitles if the viewer had the full closed-captioning enabled. This means that, if you want to know what is being said in that smattering of scenes, but don't want CC subtitles to let you know when 🎶 is playing, you are SoL.

A beautiful story about love. And how nothing can tear it apart. It makes me want to live life underwater. And I'm glad this movie won the Oscar for Best Picture.

I couldn't find the 1 and 2 star reviews so I could review them and see if I wanted to rent or buy this movie.
