Goya's Ghosts (2006)
Holy depression, Batman! This is just like The Secret Life of Bees - could we please have a couple moments where the movie isn't horrifically depressing? Please? All I'm asking is five minutes where I don't have to watch something terrible happening to someone. I will say that Natalie Portman is very good, playing two characters (one driven crazy by her years in prison and the other her daughter, who happens to be a cold-hearted prostitute), but the entire first half of the movie is entirely too slow. I'm listing this as foreign, since its production country is officially Spain, even though it's in English.
My Netflix rating: 3 stars
