Well Acted but Not My Cup of Tea
1 November 2015 | by JPMDatIMDBSee all my reviews

Very hard to watch, like Silver Linings Playbook but with less mania and fewer extremes. This is actually a plus, compared to SLP: her weaknesses lurk deeper beneath a surface of normalcy.

Excellent performances will appeal to an audience of actors while a relationship-laden story line will appeal to an audience of script writers.

Normally I am drawn to character studies as I have a strong appreciation for films that leave you caring about the characters and what happens to them. Somehow though, this time I find I can't recommend this film to my non-actor/non-scriptwriter friends. Maybe it rang so true, so plausible, so "normal," that the discomfort of watching these lives unfold outweighed the excellent performances of the players.
