Everyone seriously brings their A game regardless of ranking, without a doubt. There are some genuinely heartbreaking moments specifically with McC. This is Matthew's film, an absolute home run by the guy. The dude made me cry lol. Anne brings a nice stern maturity that sort of offsets Matthew's "playfulness", if you will. Their chemistry is rock solid throughout. Chastain brings an intense inner rage that you can tell burns within the character. I mean she really seems heartbroken every second onscreen except when shes working her mojo; then she is in her zone, her zen. Beautiful acting on her part.
Mackenzie Foy is a name to watch out for. That girl can flat out act. I bought every moment she was onscreen with Matthew, it was just wonderful. Where a girl that young could find that emotion and make it seem so genuine, I have no idea. Bravo to Nolan, I guess.
And...I'm wayyy too sleep deprived to keep going So for now, that's all I'll type up.

Great crowd. When the theater manager came out to introduce the film, everyone applauded him and a couple of people told him to "take it off." They laughed when appropriate, gasped when appropriate. And clapped when the credits rolled.
