This movie might be trying to be too deep for its own good. The characters are pretty good (except for the over-the-top brother). Amy Adams is great. W/o her, I’d say this wd be far lower scored by me.
I’m not sure what I want for these characters and for most of them, I don’t really care (except for Amy Adams’ character).
So what are they trying to say? That who need to accept people as they are? That people don’t change? There’s a clear tension btwn family and career and I can’t tell what they are trying to say… or maybe they’re just presenting the question.
A couple goes to
the country for art, family.
What’s more important?
NEXT: “The Brothers Solomon” (2007)
