I was excited to see this movie after seeing the trailer, thought it would be "fun..".. But that was not the kind of movie it was at all... It was a weird, kind of dark movie...

A two-hour non-stop train wreck. Loved it! A study of a group of people for whom it can be accurately said that, individually and collectively, everything they do is wrong. Great fun. (Note: Psychologists I know who have seen it do NOT like it, because it reminds them too much of work,)

My favorite Nicole Kidman film. Top notch portrayal of the poisonous relationship between two sisters.

Although this movie was far from well received, I thought it was a great. The story and characters are fantastic and the acting is incredible on so many levels. I think you would really have to enjoy character driven movies to like this one, as it is not a film for everyone. I would recommend this to fans of dark comedy type dramas.

This movie was kinda weird

This is not a conventional movie by any means. However, it is a very interesting look at families and the relationships between family members. All actors give incredible performances, especially Nicole Kidman.

Margot: You didn't notice anything different about Pauline?
Claude: No.
Margot: She's pregnant. She told me. She's keeping it a secret from Malcolm and even Ingrid, which I think is unforgivable. Now she's gonna have to marry him. What's she planning on doing, getting married and not drinking champagne? Then she's just gonna be lying. I guess she's afraid she'll miscarry. She probably will. I think on some level, she's ambivalent about the marriage. That's why she's not telling him.
Claude: Are you stoned, Mom?
Margot: Maybe a little.
Claude: I don't like it.

Pauline: I was dating that guy Horace back then. Do you remember him?
Margot: Was that the guy who liked to rough you up?
Pauline: No, that was our dad.
Margot: Our dad used to strip down to his skivvies and beat us with a belt.
Malcolm: That man had a sexual screw loose.
Pauline: That's awful, that stuff that happens to kids. Malcolm was fondled by a male babysitter.
Malcolm: Just use that information however you want.
