I thought that w-we're splitting everything. I get half the house. I get half the kid. Uh...
No, um... I mean, I thought... I thought you knew that that was a condition for the... for the fifty/fifty settlement on the house. You know, in return, you must give up legal custody of Ellen as...

Slow pace does not equal poor movie "For Ellen" is proof
Some movies are for fun. Some movies are for adventure. Some movies are art and are actually a "film" For Ellen is art. Yes it is slow, yes it has few words and little action. This film is about emotions that do not need laughs and action to be nurtured. Dano is approaching Oscar level acting at a very young age. I can't wait to see his skills grow and deepen. This movie is sad because that is what the characters are feeling! It is powerful and emotional and really well made. I don't have much else to say except that a lot of movie goers expect to be surprised with original twist and plot turns, but are not impressed with deliberate quality. This film is deliberate and delivers quality.
