Duller than paint drying
8 February 2017 | by (Hobe Sound FL) – See all my reviews

Obviously there are two versions of this film in theaters. The one I saw was unbearably slow, boring, badly acted, horribly edited and scored. If someone put a gun to my head and told me to sit through this again, I'd take the bullet and end my misery quicker. Letting Annette Benning look dowdy and her age apparently is being mistaken for acting, while the rest of the cast, all good actors, are left to wander without benefit of dialogue or plot. There seems to be a stab at defining feminism in the 1970s, but good luck if you can figure out the point. The owner of my local theater told me that they were yanking this dog as soon as they contractually could, noting "the managers of the chain should have known."
