one of the films i've seen recently is "it's complicated", and i loved it. not just because it's genuinely funny in a way that isn't demeaning, but because the characters are so real. there's meryl streep with all her wrinkles & alec baldwin in all his fat hairiness. a decent storyline about people in their 50s (with hot sex lives too), rather than one featuring the young and the physically perfect.
i sat there really enjoying all of this, and hoping this signals a change in hollywood. maybe a broadening of what's being offered to us, and a movement away from the traditional stereotypes of what makes a commercially successful film. we can only hope!
