A Woman's movie about Men
7 June 2017 | by (Vancouver, Canada) – See all my reviews

I went into this movie knowing it's plot being about the difficulties of losing a loved one, but what I couldn't believe was how anti- feminist it seemed.

Starring great actresses like Alia Shawkat and Janet McTeer, who did some fantastic jobs in their roles, this movie is centralized on their female characters and their obsession with their men. They never seem to stray away from the concept that their lives are solely based on men. I never found a single moment in the movie where two women ever spoke of anything besides men, and how important men are to them. When the women lose their man, weather their boyfriend or son, everything is just gone. At the same time, the father of the son is saddened by the loss of his son, but it doesn't take away from his own life, and he seems to go on easily.

This is the first time I've seen a movie based on mostly female lead characters that fails the Bechdel test. Their lack of personal lives made me feel little for those characters. Even with the wild cinematography and great performances, I couldn't help but want to yell at the screen that the women in this movie are more than just the men in their lives, but the moment it looks towards that direction, the movie is over.

Not one that I was happy with. Perhaps I should have just gone to see Wonder Woman.
