Here, drink up, DeeDee; it's good for the nerves.

Intelligent, but more negative than positive, thought out
I just saw this movie last evening. I have the following problem with the ending. No effort was made at any time to stop the abuse toward the young man which I believe drove him further towards abuse than away from it. There appeared to be no intervention to help stop the drinking or the drugs, only criticism. There were only negative reactions to his actions from others, other than from his young wife. What bothered me is that the emphasis at the ending was towards the young wife remembering positively some of the actions of the mother towards her as she 1) owns the home, 2) gets to go live with her very wealthy aunt,3) gets to keep the baby. There is never any indication of how the young man will be treated, will he be visited, allowed to see his son, etc. I think men are not protrayed very well at all in this film, and I am not sure that women are either. That's the end of my comments.
