This movie starts out like it’s being narrated by Sam Shepherd but THEN he is actually talking to someone! Haha. Psyche! And he’s a poet! He even quotes T.S. Eliot!

Everyone has gone through Great Pain and come out on the other side Damaged. For this reason, they can Say Whatever They Want and it is okay because Some of Them Are English Professors, Even Though They Act Like Trash and Have No Motivations for Their Actions.

This movie received Academy Awards in the Crying and Shocking Revelations categories. Also for Unrealistic Dialogue. Also for Unnecessary Use of British Actors.

Verdict: Thumb is down and pretty annoyed
Genre: Emotional Abuse Porn, a category just invented by my friend Dawn. I WISH I HAD THOUGHT OF THAT.
