A unique perspective on 21st Century Urban Relationships
2 April 2018 | by EilisNiGhliasainSee all my reviews

With all the bad reviews of this film from IMDb contributors, Éilís feels a bit conspicuous. She liked the film and the "mature" sex scenes.

With all the pornographic, exploitative, often violent 21st century sexual imagery all around us, I am surprised that viewers find the "older" sex between Holly Hunter's character, Eleanor and Alfred Molina's Paul offensive. With all the sexual gadgetry, video games and films available, it's intriguing that people would have an issue with a bathroom mirror.

(Éilís actually had a problem with the sexual atmosphere between the young couple Maud (Cristin Milioti) and Samir (Omar Metwally). At least Eleanor and Paul were having fun!

Because this film lacks fun. To term it as a comedy is an incomprehensible misnomer. For one thing, it centres around Adam the writer, Eleanor's ex husband, Maud's father and the definition of the word "narcissist." No one is likely to escape the effects of hanging around him. Forget the sex, Adam (Tony Shalhoub) is creepy. Unfortunately, many men live and think like him; the current President of the United States, for example.

Another contemporary and perhaps controversial topic that arises in the film is that of Maud's overload with motherhood. Canada's "Maclean's" news magazine recently covered a story of modern day mothers feeling trapped.

For these reasons, maybe that's why reviewers of the film "Breakable You" dislike it?
