Last night Ryan and I had a mini date night and headed to the local movie theater. The closest theater to our new neighborhood only has 2 screens and is usually playing what I consider "indie" or "artsy" films ... rarely any mainstream movies.
Out of the 2 choices available we chose "Young Adult," starring Charlize Theron, written and produced by Diablo Cody. From IMDb:
"Soon after her divorce, a fiction writer returns to her home in small-town Minnesota, looking to rekindle a romance with her ex-boyfriend,
who is now married with kids."
First off ... when did movies become so expensive? Why is it $10 a movie ticket? Maybe that's why movie attendance has slumped to 16 year low.
Secondly ... this movie was strange. It was a weird combination of comedy and drama and left Ryan and I thanking our lucky stars that we have such normal, happy lives. Charlize Theron did an excellent job of portraying this depressed, alcoholic, seemingly "has been". I would probably suggest waiting until this comes out on video (is that the correct terminology or should I say DVD, bluray?).
