Another Year (2010)

Netflix DVD on 6/16/11
This was nominated for Original Screenplay last year, and I'm not sure I get why. The dialogue is pretty quick and sharp, sure, but the overall story is wandering and a little aimless. The storyline about Mary falling in love with a boy that she's known since he was 10 years old is too Mary Kay Letourneau to be poignant and she comes off as a flat character. If she has any characterization at all, it is solely desperation. Not enough to make a rounded character.
My Netflix rating: 3 stars

New Movies in Year Three: 47
