Ohhh the thing she's thinking about ending is a relationship!
That's the only thing that makes sense in this movie. The thing I'm currently going with is that this is mostly an anxiety dream about commitment and aging. It doesn't all fit that hypothesis but it mostly does and that's good enough, unless I want to read the book it's based on or something like that.
I do like the cast, especially the parents, but feel like the movie takes a little too long to get "weird," making the whole thing a bit too long. I was definitely ready for it to be over.
And I guess it goes without saying that the dog was my favorite part.
OK. It's... now very very late. I don't really want to end the fest with this though and I had one final film on the schedule. I figured a Charlie Kaufman movie would make me think pretty hard so I wanted to end with something where I wouldn't have to think at all.
