There are no words... As you watch this complex chef d'oeuvre, you'll find it easy to judge and point the finger like everyone else around "Ruth". Then you'll realize the movie isn't about him, it's about his wife. You'll see that finger come back to you pretty quickly and the judgments will stay put as you try to imagine how you would react, cope and live your life if this happened to you.
Jessica Lange has come a long way since King Kong. No longer the sexpot counterpart of Jack Nicholson, she holds her own opposite Tom Wilkinson and really shows us she has only gotten better since her fantastic portrayal of Frances Farmer in "Frances"
In the Bedroom (2001)
This movie is a masterpiece. Not that it's the best movie I've seen, but the simpleness of it all...No big poignant screaming matches, no buses going too fast or meteor about to hit the earth. Just people.
Not unlike several other independent movies, it is about how people react to life and to others around them. No Hollywood ending there! This is definitely a must-see movie, if only for the new found respect I now have for Marissa Tomei. She was facing an incredible cast (Tom Wilkinson, Sissy Spacek, William Mapother) and she nailed her part. You really feel for her as much as you feel for the others.
Really, a masterpiece...
