Meh, this movie was alright. Not bad, kind of funny, a little insightful, but overall it was kind of dull. I fully expected the one, singular seen of violence in the film to lead somewhere it absolutely did not, which was odd, given it was the only occurence from this particular character. Seemed a bit extreme for it to be a once and done sort of scenario. Otherwise, the monologue at the end was maybe a tad melodramatic, but the funniest bits were in the first half when the main character, played by Vera Farmiga, and her best friend, played by Donna Murphy, were having some enjoyable girl time together (not like that, well, most of it anyway). John Hawkes was good, but barely in the film. Farmiga made a good call casting her younger sister Taissa to play her younger self. She looks just like her, and she wasn’t bad, either.
