pffffft

Reallyreallyreally excited heading off to see The Kids Are All Right. So jazzed the Lord & Master decided to come with, and my L&M subsists on a strict regimen of Turner Classic Movie black & white oldies. Cut to two hours later, and a deflated little Miss Wiggles. Astonishing how much a script jammed with caricatures, cliches, and crappy dialogue can let you down. One brief, shining moment – Annette Bening wordlessly conveying shock, despair, hurt, anger. She is never less than smashing.

Bonus Cosmic Riddle: how did this woman, who’s comfortable aging naturally, gracefully, wrinkles and all, end up married to the Vainest Man in Hollywood, Mr. Warren Beatty? Answer me that, Julie Christie.
