        I thought of that one too; though maybe it is a bit of a downer for a
        couple who are trying to become closer. A great movie, very
        insightful about relationships, with fantastic acting.

          Well, I don't know why you hated the movie. But it speaks volumes
          about the way people take each other for granted, about how
          relationships can go off course, and about how crises can be
          opportunities for growth.

            Well, I'm not a parent, so I find it hard to relate to.

            I did find the boss' resentment over the fathers missed time at work
            interesting.

              I recently saw Love Actually and.... actually liked it. Well, I liked
              some of it anyway.

                The only marriage movie I have been able to think of is "A Beautiful
                Mind." Most movies end when the marriage begins, or else they are about
                marriages breaking up. No one wants to show us functioning marriages.

                    That was one of the good things about "In the bedroom." Of course a
                    _functioning_ marriage isn't much of a story by itself, so if a movie
                    shows you a functioning marriage, it is usually incidental.

                      "Mr. Mom" was all about a healthy marriage. Each of them had to
                      change circumstances but the marriage survived just fine.

                        In The Bedroom? Was that the one done in Maine? Yeah, that was *really*
                        gripping, and it sure seemed REAL enough. (I think we're talking about the
                        same movie(?)

                          They got back together, though, after he got saner. Probably a much
                          healthier example. . .

                            I wonder if that is really true, though (that a functioning marriage
                            isn't intrinsically interesting). You'd have to show a marriage
                            functioning in some kind of interesting situation, obviously, but there
                            aren't many of those, even.

                              I think a functioning marriage _is_ intrinsically interesting. It
                              just isn't very dramatic, so it doesn't provide much opportunity to
                              wrap a movie or story around it. If there is a functioning marriage
                              in a movie, it won't be the subject of the movie, but will be
                              incidental.

                              It's the old Tolstoy dictum about happy marriages and unhappy ones.
                              You'd have to show a marriage functioning in some kind of interesting situation, obviously, but there aren't many of those, even.
                              Right. It's like the question "why are there so many TV shows about
                              cops and so few about, say, social security bureacrats."
