And now an artsy film review. You Hurt My Feelings is really good. It's an old fashioned talkie. Not a lot of action. Just normal folks living life and showing emotions. No, Ray did not join me for this one.
Julia Louis Dreyfus as Beth is a novelist with a book that's not quite clicking. She's a bit fragile and she overhears her husband, Don (Tobias Menzies) talking with a friend. He expresses that he's not sold on her novel and this just cuts her to the core. He's always been so supportive and now she's questioning life, her marriage, and just everything.
Poor Don is not aware of what he's done and he's befuddled. What did I say? What did I do? Their poor teen son, Elliott (Owen Teague) is caught in the middle and trying to figure how what the heck is happening in the family dynamics.
This ninety minute film is tight with good acting. I won't give it all away, but thankfully, the duo do communicate and figure things out. It's a reassurance about a long time solid marriage that hits a rocky spot. There's always ups and downs, but this film touches on the nuances.
Nicely done. It's a "little film".
