I read the article, I don't get it, what's so controversial about the role?

The very next sentence after the one you chose to quote:

“There is literally nothing controversial about this,” Mulligan said. “We’re just seeing it for the kind of disturbing truth that it is as opposed to a sort of odd trivialization."

That’s as good an example as any of “odd trivialization”. Well done.

Find something else to get triggered about.

What is the "disturbing truth"?

That far right middle aged white males get easily riled about stuff like this.

They must lead truly dour lives.

Only someone who had deep predujice towards "far right middle aged white males" would miss the actual point of a movie like this, and mock others for rejecting it.

Mocking the far right usual suspects is as easy as shooting fish in a barrel. I can't comment on the actual film, not having seen it, yet. But if it terrifies and upsets the usual suspects, that's all good.

@Toasted Heretic - I can't comment on the actual film, not having seen it, yet. But if it terrifies and upsets the usual suspects, that's all good.

Its not terrifying or upsetting anyone. The problem is that, reading the article, it really does seem to be another insubstantial Rom Com, over- hyped to try to make it into something it clearly isnt.
