In the Bedroom
I guess we really should have had another child...
Set in a small fishing town on the American east coast, this film deals with the effect of the tragic loss of a child. A middle-aged couple has high hopes for their only son, expecting him to become an architect. He, however, has fallen in love with a married-but-separated woman with two little kids. Her husband, son of the local industrialist, does not take kindly to her new love, and things take a dramatic turn. When the court case proves disappointing, the tension between the parents forces them to face some hidden truths about themselves. It is difficult to summarise this film without revealing too much. Rest assured that it features fine performances, and is best suited to a mature audience -- youngsters are likely to be bored. |
