Arvin is, to me, the proper protagonist – solely made higher by Holland’s nuanced efficiency.
Ravaged internally by an insupportable assortment of childhood traumas, Arvin struggles along with his personal interpretation of religion, a theme that’s fixed all through the movie.
On high of this, Arvin is clearly not one of many smartest of youngsters on the town, that means he struggles to see – and do – what the “right” factor is, while additionally doing “right” by his household, and certainly by their legacy.

Arvin is made much more complicated by Holland’s guile and intrinsic internalisation. He is heartbreaking, show-stopping, and fully unbelievable. His finest efficiency but.
