Rating: ★★★★½

I wish there were a better indicator of a time line here. Were they together for weeks, months, years? If a longer timeline, then there’s a lot missing here for me which causes issues with my suspension of disbelief.

The issue of suicide here seemed too simple a plot ploy for escape.

Was his suicide subtly an indicator that he’d run out of things he had to say and so he sublimated himself to help her continue to say what she needed to?
