Love, life, and the struggles of a mother bringing up a son in the the late 70's. The ignorance of a free spirit against the needs of a young man trying to find his true character and beliefs. Living in a bohemian household shared with 3 like minded spirited people to help pay the rent, his mother tries to establish bonds that he cannot deal with. She cannot deal with his inability to talk, and enlists the help of other females in his life to share the burden of his upbringing. Slowly life unravels for them all without understanding how. In spite of their perceived struggles, they all go on to live defined lives without any serious consequences.Written by

What is that?
It's The Raincoats.
Can't things just be pretty?
Pretty music is used to hide how unfair and corrupt society is.
Ah, okay so... they're not very good, and they know that, right?
Yeah, it's like they've got this feeling, and they don't have any skill, and they don't want skill, because it's really interesting what happens when your passion is bigger than the tools you have to deal with it. It creates this energy that's raw. Isn't it great?

When I saw that On Demand offered this film starring Annette Benning and Greta Gerwig, I was excited and ordered it immediately. I stuck it out for the first hour and a quarter, and then turned it off. What a lousy script! I am always one who enjoys a film without much action that focuses mostly on dialogue and/or relationships, but this film was a bore in all areas. Nothing happened, and the dialogue was just plain dull. And predictable. How did this film get made? As indicated this was a great disappointment to me because for the fine actors in it, it was a waste. I wonder what they thought about it.
