In 1986, In Brooklyn, New York, the dysfunctional family of pseudo intellectuals composed by the university professor Bernard and the prominent writer Joan split. Bernard is a selfish, cheap and jealous decadent writer that rationalizes every attitude in his family and life and does not accept "philistines" - people that do not read books or watch movies, while the unfaithful Joan is growing as a writer and has no problems with "philistines". Their sons, the teenager Walt and the boy Frank, feel the separation and take side: Walt stays with Bernard, and Frank with Joan, and both are affected with abnormal behaviors. Frank drinks booze and smears with sperm the books in the library and a locker in the dress room of his school. The messed-up and insecure Walt uses Roger Water's song "Hey You" in a festival as if it was of his own, and breaks up with his girlfriend Sophie. Meanwhile Joan has an affair with Frank's tennis teacher Ivan and Bernard with his student Lili.Written by

I don't know how I'm just now coming across this movie in 2019. I'm 40 years old now but I was about eleven when my parents divorced and it wasn't ever easy. Splitting holiday's, their drama, new relationships, child support and blah blah blah. Over the years I've been able to become a little more understanding of some of the things my parents did or didn't do. I feel like the writer might have been able to also but at the same time choose his own way of going about things. It's hard and this movie shows you just how hard and messed up things can be in a short amount of time. It wasn't this big suspense, thriller or action packed movie but I became invested in every role.
