I agree very much with "strangely unromantic." Best argument, maybe, is that it's supposed to be, because the relationship in it isn't actually a particularly good or healthy one, and it's about...

Re: Is Florence Pugh a box office draw?

I like her, but by the definition you have given, no, I suppose not. But by that definition there are very few movie stars.
