This plot description is chronological, although major parts of the film are told in flashback. In 1956, Joan Archer (Annie Starke) meets Joseph Castleman (Harry Lloyd), a handsome young married professor at a women-only college. Although already an accomplished (if unpublished) writer, Joan is awed by Joseph's force of personality and advice that "a writer must write". Joan meets a published alumni authoress (Elizabeth McGovern), whose cynical views on opportunities for female writers disheartens Joan. Two years later, Joseph has been fired for having an affair with Joan, his marriage is failing, and his first attempt at writing a novel turns out very poor. Joan, a secretary at a publishing house, observes how the all-male editors dismiss women writers. When Joan criticizes Joseph's work, he threatens to end his relationship with her (claiming she cannot love "a hack"). Joan agrees to fix Joseph's novel for him. The work, titled The Walnut, is published and becomes a bestseller. By 1960, Joseph and Joan are living in a large seaside home in Connecticut. Joan is hard at work writing a novel, to be published under Joseph's name, while Joseph supports her by cooking, cleaning, and caring for their first child, David. As Joseph and Joan converse, it is apparent that Joan's novel is a reflection of their life together, which bores Joan..

My mother, who is 79 years old and very blind, likes this movie. I didn't like it too much because it was all so drawn out. And that's why I got confused as to what was going on. And I'm not going to blame it on the actors, because I think they did a good job. I think that a younger viewer wouldn't understand the story as well as a grown up. If you're someone who likes the idea of people who are blind, but haven't really thought about it, then this is the movie for you.

A woman in her thirties(Tori) is recently divorced with an unhappy relationship. She works at a school and has a job as a server and has a drug addiction. She is suicidal and threatens to kill herself. She is recruited to take care of the elderly mother(Natalie). She is told that she is to be a kind of caretaker and her life will be a blessing for her. Tori gets a call from her psychiatrist telling her that she is being sent home from the hospital. She is then sent home, with her drug habit in the back of her mind. She is caught up in her mother's dying body. Is she really going to be allowed to stay home and spend the rest of her life with her mother? Will this woman, who is in her thirties, be able to take care of her mother and get her back on her feet? This is a fine film, not a great one but a great one. This movie really shows how far we have come in our culture of women and children. They are not as fragile as they were back in the 60's, 70's and 80's. It's really a great film. I would recommend this to anyone.

I enjoyed watching this film. The book was not that great, but I liked it. I am sure that there is more to this movie than I have been told. I think the director did a good job of trying to portray a somewhat believable world, especially because I'm not familiar with the place, and not sure what to expect. It was interesting to see what the girls in the movie had in common, as they had lots of similarities. There are two things that are important to me about this movie: The first is that the movie was not boring. I was able to sit through the whole thing, which is really a good thing. The second is that there were a lot of interesting characters that were well-developed. The acting was good, as was the directing. I was really impressed with the soundtrack. It was a good soundtrack, and I am sure that the movie has something to say about certain social and political issues. The story is about a girl named Ana and her husband who are traveling to Europe to visit her mother. The husband is a rich lawyer who is actually a politician, and the wife is a prostitute. Ana thinks the whole thing is a dream, but the husband thinks otherwise. There is a lot of politics in this movie, but I am not going to go into that now. I think that you should see the movie for yourself, if you want to know anything about it.

A boring, depressing, lifeless movie. It's not too bad, but it just isn't very good either. The only thing I really liked about it is the cinematography. The acting is pretty bad as well. The main character isn't very likable and the supporting characters are all too over the top. It's definitely not the best movie I've ever seen but it's definitely not the worst. It's certainly not worth watching.

The film is about a man who can't seem to make up his mind about his future. He falls in love with a woman who doesn't want to go to bed with him. His friends are helping him. He meets the girl who helps him decide his future. It's a simple plot, but the director of the film knows that, and he made it great. The film is very real. The ending is a good one. The film is very different from other films of this type. It has a new kind of style and a new kind of subject matter. The film is a good movie. It is very very good.

I've seen this movie on the TV recently and it has a strong message about making a difference in the world. I really liked the scene where they are all around the apartment building and the cops have surrounded the building and then the girl is standing there. She is talking to the policeman, she says that the only way out is to give up the only way out. Then the girl runs and the cop shouts to the other cops "What is she doing here?" Then the cop runs and she is holding a gun to her head. I really like this movie because it is very interesting and I like how the girls are supporting each other. Also, I think that the main message is to stop killing people. And I think that if you see this movie you will understand the meaning of the movie.

I was expecting to be let down by the reviews of this film. I've been a fan of Tom Hanks' films for a long time and I always enjoyed the way he portrayed his character in his films. However, I was surprised to see how well this film portrayed him. His character was sympathetic and I was left with the feeling that I actually cared about his character. I was also impressed by the acting of the main characters, especially the man who played the husband. The Wife was a very well made film and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I was very surprised to see how well the film was received by critics and audiences. This film is well worth watching and I would recommend it to anyone.

I'm a feminist and i don't feel the need to justify my views on society or the way things are. You can't really expect me to take all the negative comments about this film seriously. The film does show a range of emotions from some fairly intense scenes, to others where the characters are trying to be sympathetic. The film is about a young woman, in a position of power, who is abused by her husband, because she's an intelligent young woman who has the ability to question what's going on around her. She works in the school system, and is aware of the problems of the system. She has just been raped by her husband, but doesn't want to do anything about it. She feels that she has to go to the police, and in order to keep her husband from getting even she is willing to do anything to achieve this. There are some disturbing scenes, but nothing that doesn't really add to the story. I do feel that the film goes a little too far in its description of what the situation is like, but is a little too long at the end of it. I think the film tries to be too real in its portrayal of situations, but in my opinion it does come across as very unrealistic and just not realistic.

After the success of the Oscar-winning "Thelma and Louise", the studio that made the film decided to make another movie in the same genre, this time about a struggling novelist and writer. This movie was made with little money and even less success, but the director decided to stick to the original script. The movie is a journey for a lonely woman who has to be in a relationship with her husband. But the husband, an alcoholic, also has to be in a relationship. So what is the choice? Will she be able to keep the relationship going? I think that is the real dilemma that the main character has to face in this movie. It is a really good movie, with a lot of emotions and deep thought. I give it a 7/10.

Saw the film "Wife", starring Laura Dern and Jason Bateman. The film is about a divorced woman who is raising two young children while dealing with her husband's drug abuse. The plot is that they have lived in the same house for years and the daughter is being abused by her father. I was surprised by the kind of film this is. The film is not about women or families but about women and the violence that men can inflict on them. This is a very interesting film and I recommend it. The film is very touching, but is not suitable for children. I think it should be rated PG-13 for violence and the sexual scenes are very strong. If you liked this film, you may like "All About My Mother" or "Love & Mercy".

A film about a marriage which has gone sour, which has gradually fallen apart and which is slowly disintegrating. The story tells us the story of a husband and wife who are separated by death and who live a life of mutual support and dedication to each other. The wedding which takes place in a fairly simple fashion has been a long time in the making and the question that arises is where it will go. The main question is what will the wife do now that she is about to lose her husband? How will she react? How will she cope? The film is a slow one and the reactions and reactions of the characters are very slow. When the wife realises that her husband has died and that she has to wait for the wedding which she has been unable to attend, the whole atmosphere of the film changes. The wedding is held and there is the usual stuff which can be expected from a wedding. The film is filmed with a documentary-style which is always welcome. As the film develops, we learn more and more about the woman who is about to lose her husband and the man who she has to support. There are a couple of scenes which are very moving and tell us a great deal about the character of the characters and the situation they are in. The film is dark but it is also very much in the realm of reality. It is not a comedy but it does have its moments. A good and very moving film.

The movie is one of those in which you can easily get lost in the confusing characters and even confusing plot, if you are not paying attention. I am a fan of quirky movies and I enjoyed this one a lot. The actors did a great job. It is hard to believe that this movie is a year old. It was a little slow and I did not understand a lot of the movie, but I do think that if you have not seen it before, you will enjoy it. I give it a 7/10.

All I can say is that I think that this movie was really good. It was funny, it had some nice twists and turns and it really kept me guessing. However, I think that it is not a movie that I would recommend to anyone who wants to see a good movie. I think that it was not very good and I would not recommend it to anyone, especially for anyone who is interested in vampires. It is the type of movie that is not recommended for people who like to be scared or have a good scare.

Micheal Stoller (George Clooney) is a successful businessman and a pretty decent guy. He lives in a nice suburban home with his wife Claire (Gena Rowlands) and their two children. One day he discovers a letter in his mailbox that is addressed to his wife. He is devastated, but he does not give up. Soon, he is contacted by the president of a company that has a mysterious formula for a new pill. In return, the company will send a man to Paris to get the formula and it will be distributed in the United States. George is going to be a billionaire. Then, his wife is sent to a mental hospital. There, she becomes suicidal and the pills are stolen. George is devastated and does not want to be a millionaire. The film is an intense drama, but it has some interesting ideas. George Clooney gives a good performance and he is really good. George also does a good job in the part. I like his character. His wife is very good, too. There are many different characters in this film. The movie is very emotional. It is a real film and it is a real story. It is also a really good film. It is a drama, a drama, a drama. It is a real film. The film is very, very good. I like it very much.

I am not a fan of the film adaptation of Sigrid Undset's novel. This film seems to be another attempt by the writers and director to bring the book to life. I enjoyed it, but it could have been better. The performances were fine, but I felt that the script was too over the top. It could have been more subtle, and less melodramatic. The characters were not very well developed, and there were some characters that were extremely unsympathetic. In summary, the book was very well written, and the film adaptation was not as good as the book. It was not terrible, but it could have been better.

In the first few minutes, you will be able to see that this is a hard movie to watch. The editing, the camera work, the acting, everything is very good. It is hard to sit through the first hour without yawning. Then, you will start to fall in love with the characters, the story and the atmosphere. The only problem is that the movie is too long, so you may fall asleep halfway through. I think this is one of the best movies of the year. I would recommend it to anyone who wants to see a good movie without the usual Hollywood cliches.

This movie is a drama that is based on the reality of a woman who has to live with a husband who is a petty thief who is a known criminal. He is very good at stealing and she tries to do the best she can. The movie is not the most original thing I have ever seen but it was still good and the acting was good. It was a good movie. I liked the movie. The movie is about a woman who is in a relationship with a man that is a petty thief. She has to live with him and he does not like that at all. She has to live with him because she is pregnant. This movie is not an award winner but it is good.

The Woman: A Year in the Life of a Single Mother: This documentary follows the life of Maria, a single mother in Spain, and her struggles and decisions throughout the year. Maria is a single mother who has two children, aged five and six. When her daughter is found murdered, Maria is left with a very difficult situation. The film is very slow and dull, but has some interesting things to say about her. There are no shots of her children, so it is hard to really see what is going on, but there are a couple of long, long shots of Maria talking to her daughter and asking her questions about her life. The film does have a number of interesting bits, but it is more of a documentary than a film, and there are a lot of things that don't make much sense. There are a lot of uninteresting and boring scenes, and it is hard to really get into the film. This is not a great documentary, but it is a good one.

This is a truly rewarding film, that shows some very well done acting. I'm a bit surprised at how much I liked it. The story, and the characters, seemed to be more shallow than I'd expected, but that's my first complaint. It's certainly not a film to take your kids to see, but I think it's a much better film than many people seem to think. I don't think it's a perfect film, but it's certainly a great film, if you take it for what it's worth.

What a great film! Well, I don't think that is a very good term, but at least it says something about this movie. There are no major differences from the books, but the movie goes much deeper into this. The reason for that is because this is a serious film. It does not have the charm of "The Exorcist", and I found it very hard to find any funny moments in the movie. Still, there are some great scenes. For example, in the "honeymoon" scene, the wife goes to a cabin in the woods. They see a small and very young girl in the cabin. The husband gets angry and hits her. But then she is able to walk away, and he gets upset. He goes to the cabin and gets even more angry. He goes to the cabin again and hits her. The wife walks out of the cabin and they start to walk towards each other. And then the wife is able to get a knife and stab him. And then she puts the knife into the man's chest and he dies. Well, that is an intense scene. And the wife goes into the cabin and stabs the husband and he dies. But there are other scenes that show the true emotions of the wife, when she talks to the husband in the final scene, and the husband's death in the film. It is a very sad movie, and I think this is why it was nominated for several Oscars. I really recommend it.

I'm not sure where to start with this film. I think it's great. It's really funny, and sad, and all around. The acting was pretty good, but the story was way too complicated for me to really like. It's definitely worth seeing, though.
