I’m willing to have any conversation with anyone after they’ve seen it, because I think that they’ll be very surprised as to what the movie is really about, John Krasinski said.

Viewers can sniff your bias from a mile away. This is not the 1960s where information was a tight commodity. The internet has opened up the game to all of us.
