The famous film producer of IndieWire, David Ehrlich also commented on the movie with his B+ review. The producer explained the character of the movie in his own way as,
"Here is someone who doesn’t have the good sense to realize that he’s the main character of a movie; someone who thinks that he’s always just outside the eye of the storm. That misperception gives Jackman the space needed to be life-sized in a way that his ‘bigger’ roles seldom have. This is the most human performance he’s ever given, wrapped in translucent vanity and cut with finely sliced layers of doubt and denial."
Other several movies like "Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt: Kimmy vs. The Reverend, "American Son", "Dolly Parton’s Heartstrings: These Old Bones" and El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie" were also nominated for the award but "Bad Education" beat all of them and headed for the Award.
