It's another fucking Brokeback Mountain. Don't bother.

I will say that Janet McTeer is amazing as Mr. Page, and I will seek out more movies starring her. But even she does not make it worth it to put up with this shit. For shame, Glenn Close.

Hi!

I don't think I've seen Glenn Close in a movie since the '90s, but I wasn't intrigued enough to seek this movie out. Probably a good thing.

McTeer is wonderful in a little film called "Songcatcher" with Aidan Quinn and Jane Adams, set in the early 20th century in the North Carolina mountains. There is a major plot of a lesbian relationship, but also how a rural community in that time would respond to same when it becomes public, so consider that a trigger warning. It's a well-made film, though, and filled with beautiful folk music.

Urgh, I am so sorry you watched that :o( That movie was so depressing, I completely agree. I was so intrigued when I saw the trailer, also because -- Glenn Close!!! But yeah, for shame :o(

I don't quite agree that it's a Brokeback Mountain, but - caveat - I am still pretty fond of that movie. I think the main difference, to me, is that BM is at least played for "Lookit the poor gays, their lives are terrible, we should pity them" whereas I felt like Albert was never anything but an inherently off-putting and unsympethetic character -- he wasn't made or acted to make the audience even like him, only for "Look at the freak!" effect.

I'm sorry to hear it's so bad - I shall have to reconsider going to watch it. Though I do like historical dramas.

Kind of related question: have you ever watched The Ballad of Little Jo?
