Movie interesting character study, although script lacked strong resolution.

One-act more of a first act. Snappy dialogue, like Rebecca Gilman adapting Lillian Hellman. Engaging, but to what purpose? Characters start and end in the same place. Doctor had interesting flashes, but was in the end just evil; why? And aren't there more relevant problems to address than the flaws of state asylums in the 1940s?

Syria, a genuine thanks for your comments. My only reply is that life lacks strong resolution, in the moment, anyways.

I hope that you'll come to our next event, a reading of Anya Pearson's "Love-Hate" this Feb. 26th at the Someday Lounge at 8pm.
