You will appreciate this movie if you have ever had a loving healthy relationship, you will likely resent it if your experience doesn't reflect the respect and love shared on screen between spouses, family and friends. Henry Jaglom's character portrays a mentally fit and emotionally intelligent husband, which is rarely portrayed in film. I appreciate not having to wade through personality disorders or being being frustrated/anxious by watching people engage in toxic exchanges. This is a great movie for someone who doesn't seek need flawed characters on screen to make them feel better about themselves.
