For anyone who didn’t get why I’m dumping George Clooney for Alec Baldwin.…if you see the movie you will get what I SEE in Alec….ALL of it.
Maybe the box office won’t challenge Avatar, already the fourth biggest hit of ALL TIME. But hopefully this movie will convince Alec not to abandon acting; and will convince Hollywood to make more movies for mature audiences.
I’m doing my part; I saw it the day it opened and can’t wait to see it again. So many things about this film really got to me.
NO SPOILER ALERT: if you haven’t seen it, I won’t tell. And all you really need to know is in the title, which is absolutely perfect.
What more is there to say about relationships?
You’d think people at our age would have it down by now. Only we don’t.
As a sad commentary to the truth of that, this holiday season brought not only this movie, but also the announcement of the split between Susan Sarandon and Tim Robbins—who seemed one of the exceptional, enduring love stories of our age—and the age.
I know nothing about this, but somehow it makes me really sad. And deep down it makes me wonder if today’s humans aren’t geared to mate for a lifetime, but better suited for serial monogamy.
Maybe we were just buying into another Hollywood fiction; but I thought they were the poster couple for unwedded bliss, and had really figured it out.
Then again, I also thought by now I would have figured it out. I’m a veteran of a 15-year marriage, a divorce, now in a 15- years-plus marriage to V, and…… it’s still complicated.
