*** This review contains spoilers ***

While this was a well made film (great editing, good photography, etc), the subject matter was pretty tedious, and I lost my patience with it. Gee, one more dysfunctional family. What an original idea.

The mom and pop are almost stereotypical parents from the 50's. Domineering, patriarchal father. Submissive neurotic mother, and unsure of her life choices as the years roll by. She does get the courage to find a true lover in her 70's (although the neurosis never seems far behind), but it was too late for me. By the time the film got to that point, I had seen too much tripe.
