    I think it’s the kind of movie you need to live some complex situations in your life to understand people like Ben. If you are 20 maybe you’ll find it boring. But if you are late 40s maybe you’ll get something.
    I see my uncle in his character and somehow now I understand the way he goes.

    Best phrase: “I was once, honey. It doesn’t last.” Someday it will have sense to everyone.

    You are 100% correct about the fact you should not expect a comedy and that if you expect a dark character study you will love the movie. It’s an excellent and overlooked movie. Nice review.
