Re: The Descendants - Take on Infidelity
I got into personal hangups, as I often do.
They got several points right, at least by the stories here.
Toxic friend saying 'you go girl, you deserve it.' And the
quit beta husband you cited.
The AP saying 'it just happened' during a party. Classic poor
Affair down - Matthew Lillard is no Clooney. See scooby-do or
OMW has a gut feeling, and confronts.
So, it was well researched for the cliches. It was un-satisying
for never answering the 'why' question Matt had. But again, that
is typical of real life.
But, like Crazy, Stupid Love, I would not suggest it for anyone
going through or having gone through infidelity. Movie treatment
is just a little too glib.
