Did it hit a cord?
Or did you wonder what all the fuss was about?
I laughed and cried my way through the whole thing. I saw myself, my sister, brother….. it made me feel good. I’m not so unusual after all.
My daughter-in-law has helped me with my writing by proofing and giving suggestions. She now knows the players well . Every time something happened that she recognized as similar to my experience, she would nudge me enthusiastically and say things like, “Mom, that’s his second wife!” Being there with my son, his wife and my husband and having them all understand how I felt was cathartic. For many years only my husband understood how I felt about my family history.
If this movie hit a cord with you let us know your thoughts.
