Ripley's movie review

Yeah, it made me cry and depressed me for quite a while afterwards. Not a sunshiney happy movie, that's for sure. The story was good although one of the things on her To Do list (and a major part of the story) bothered me a lot. Polley was very good, Ruffalo was impressive, Harry was great as the bitter mom, and Speedman didn't get enough to do. It's a good movie and worth watching. Just keep the tissues handy.
