Well, they turned around and widely released it. We checked it out tonight. It was good, and for a lot of people will probably be hard to watch. Heard quite a few complaints from others leaving the theater. Several people tried laughing at things that weren't funny, as if to avoid some of the akward situations this movie presented. This is a drama, pure and simple, and if you're not going to watch it as such you are NOT going to like it. Aptly adapted from the book. Kate Winslet seemed like she was over acting the entire movie just a little(born from her theater background I'm sure), but Dicapio pulled off a stunning performance. This movie is sort of like Leaving Las Vegas only in the Suburbs, no hookers, and slightly less drinking. Be prepared for some serious shit. This is not a movie that pulls any punches.
