Anybody see this movie? Portrait of a marriage imploding. It was just...brutal : (

I am no longer accepting the things I cannot change...I am changing the things I cannot accept.

What stuck out to me was how broken they both were when they met. They were both band aids to each others' brokeness for a time but it didn't last because it never does.

I found it incredibly sad and a very good depiction of the slow erosion that occurs when limerence wears off. It had died a quiet death long before they realised it.

The ukulele scene is beautiful but I found the rest quite painful to watch. Her emotional numbness and his alcoholic numbness were a little too close to home.

I may have reached a point where I'd piss on him if he was on fire.... eventually!!

My ex and I watched this movie together when it was in the theaters. Based on the trailers we were expecting something different.

It was a very hard movie to watch and hit close to home. I ended up going to the bathroom a couple of times in the middle of it.

Brutal is the best word to describe it, which says a lot about the exceptional acting and directing.

There is always a rainbow after every storm.
