Smart People

I don't know why I resisted watching this movie for so long, but finally watched Smart People tonight and it was really a great little flick. (I may have to treat myself to the soundtrack - quirky, indie, folksie wonderfulness.)

I really love movies that are about healing - healing as a group, sometimes redefining family, and other times simply healing family members. (The Station Agent and The Visitor are both exceptional examples of the former category, and Smart People accomplishes both.) There are many incredibly uncomfortable moments in this film, but the end is so satisfying.

If you haven't seen Smart People, I highly recommend it!
