Storyline

When a dutiful, albeit barren Christian housewife discovers that her devout husband has suffered a stroke at a sperm bank where he's been secretly donating his seed for the past 25 years, she leaves her sheltered world and starts off on a journey to find his eldest biological son - a mullet-headed, foul-mouthed ex-con with whom she develops an odd but meaningful relationship.

When Linda asks Raymond in her car if he's in some kind of trouble, the camera cuts away a few times to her reaction, and it's obvious she's reacting to a different actor with a much darker beard. See more »

If you think this story or the character was beautiful or good, you're less than human
23 July 2016 | by See all my reviews

You either hate anything remotely biblical, or you have the mind of a genitalia, and your highest level of consciousness is mere hormones.

To think that fornicating with someone else is supposed to be beautiful or artistic or some kind of high level that can be seen only by the brilliant, you have a broken mind or you're merely a dumb beast, and I mean dumb.

Even animals can have more composure, control, and fidelity.

That's why women call men pigs if they are below human standard of morality, and why people are referred to as dogs, or cockroaches, or rats.

Some people are like pigs, dogs, and rats, and aren't human at all.

People are born as wild beasts, it takes their effort and learning and the doing that earns them the title of human, or man, or woman.

You might be of the female or male gender, but that doesn't make you a human.

You might have the body, but you don't have the mind or the heart or the spirit or the soul.

Humans are deeds, knowledge, spirit, principles, morality, respect, honor.

If you're merely emotions and sexuality, you're nothing more than a mere mindless dumb organism that reproduces.

Only worse, because though being born with the heritage of aspiring to be human, you degrade yourself below your own minimum quota to be called what you were given, and actually go levels downward.

Going above and beyond to be like a cancer, a plague, a disease, an abomination, a thing of disgust and horror.

Even if this movie was merely a movie, if you sympathized with the main character or the story, know that there's a difference between you and an actual human.

If you can't even refrain from having fornication from someone, what are you. You're a joke, a failure of will and values, who is not suitable to run his or her own life, nor to make his or her own decisions, or to be given authority to do anything, for nothing could be entrusted to such a thing, as we do not entrust such things to wild and dumb beasts.

Authority, will, control, choices, that is a thing for civilized, principled, and disciplined beings.

Human is an earned title.
