Storyline

David and Lily Hitchcock have been married for 6 years. During their marriage, David, a "professional videographer," has taped every vacation, party, significant event (buying a house), and trivial pursuit (rollerblading), with a single mindedness that is decidedly unsettling. The film opens at the Hitchcock's New Year's Eve party, during which Lily leaves David following his insistent demands that she perform step aerobics for the guests (and the camera). When David insists on a reason for the break-up, Lily replies, "Watch the videotapes." The film follows David's viewing of his library of Lily Videos, while he and his friends look for the reason for David's new life of pain and bewilderment. Written by Fred Goodridge

Destructive Affections
2 January 2005 | by See all my reviews

David Hitchcock (Matt Winston) and Lily Hitchcock (Amy Smallman) are getting divorced after 6 years of what David thought was a very happy marriage. David is into the habit of making home movies, so he sits home and tries to configure what went wrong. Later on, upon deciding he know what mistakes resulted in the divorce, he struggles to re-kindle the once-great relationship.

Basically, the movie takes you through the hardships that newly-divorced face in the change of their daily routine and what they do to overcome a failing relationship.

I never married, so I don't really have experience in the subject but I thought the movie managed to convey reality. And, as corny as it may sound, it DID help me go through a very hard breakup.

**** out of 5.
