Oh wow! Until now is the only time I ever felt sure about anything. My whole life never seems to catch up to that moment. But to be unsure, well, I don't know. What if there's no reason in your life to feel shitty, but you do anyway? No enemy to point at. What do you do then?

I just watched this movie and i must admit it wasn't brilliant but better then a lot of other movies.
The plot starts with a family seemingly happy but as you have already guessed nothing is as it seems. The guy is a thinker while the wife is not so much. Then blah blah blah and the guy writes a sarcastic play, leaves his wife, and finally gets together with his true soul mate.
Now a response to the previous review: A guy criticized that the plot makes us completely unsympathetic to the main character due to his ungratefulness to what he has(the happy family stuff). I agree that you shouldn't not leave a marriage in ruin like that but in order to achieve that you need to be on the same level of understanding with your partner. That doesn't mean that you always agree but it means he at least gets your "multiple sarcasm". Im not talking about intelligence here well maybe I am so what some people get it some don't that is just how it is.
Anyway not a bad movie but i think it dint reach the right audience.
