Juliet, Naked

The film —I haven’t read the book.

Very nice film, again parenting, good and bad, why do films like these touch me? Key decision of your life —be a parent, or not. Until recently it wasn’t a decision at all —either you married and were, or didn’t and weren’t. And marrying was much less of a decision than that of becoming a father or mother.

Life is more difficult now, just because of that —what some years ago came naturally to you, it won’t to now unless you make an explicit decision about it. Much of the trouble with women nowadays is rooted in that —they want, at the same time, to be mothers and not to be mothers. Solution is hopeless.

By the way, how does Ethan Hawke manage to cover Waterloo Sunset so well?
