Quotes

Nicole: [while arguing with Charlie] You're being so much like your father.
Charlie: Do not compare me to my father!
Nicole: I didn't compare you to him. I said you were acting like him.
Charlie: You're exactly like your mother. Everything you were complaining about her, you're doing. You're suffocating Henry.

Charlie: I'm just repeating what you told me.

I don't know what to say
14 November 2019 | by mc1382See all my reviews

This hit way too close to home, it was almost surreal how much the film mirrorred my own life. My parents recently went through a divorce and the way Nicole and Charlie's proceedings played out was almost too much to handle. It was almost too confronting, too emotionally gut punching, too real that I almost starting balling my eyes out in the theatre.

It's like this movie came at the right time and in the right moment. Just when I needed it most. This week for me hasn't been the best, a lot of things have been overwhelming for me. The film in a weird way, despite all the events devolving in chaos, told me that things are sometimes awful, unpredictable and emotionally draining but that's ok. The performances, direction, script all came together to deliver something that will always be special to me.

This film does have flaws, yes, but I don't really care, films like this only come once in a lifetime. Sometimes emotions mean more than cold hard criticism. I didn't expect this film to hit as hard as it did, godammit, just go see it already.
