Young Adult - movie review

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?).
