Oakland, Berkeley, And East Bay News, Events, Restaurants, Music, & Arts
Not a single scene, in all its crayon box beauty, was believable. I had read other reviews that called it a melodrama but even then I was not prepared for how false this movie , supposedly delineating a woman's life (topic for another time-directors who supposedly make women's movies because we're such a distinct species ...remember Woody Allen?) and her guilt over, what, being mildly pissed that her husband had been bedding her friend all along and even though she knew that from the get.
I was also prepared for a bleak flick given the topic was the estrangement of a beloved daughter. But it was not believable so I simply didn't care. When it ended abruptly, I was just glad to go home to my warm house after sitting in a cold theater watching time pass.
