the ending was ambiguous



the movie ended without resolving the issue of whether he would go back to his wife or with laura reynolds.

I hope he went with reynolds. They could just have lived in that little cabin for the rest of their days.

While I don't condone adultery, I somehow agree with him going back to Laura. Feel bad about it.

But what about that psycho kid of hers? Ed was better off without her.

Psycho kid? What the hell are you on about!
The kid was a very normal innocent kid.. did you even watch the movie?
If anything Rev could have been a father and teacher to him..

However, I loved that she included her son in the final painting that she was working on. That told me a lot about how she was changed by knowing him. I actually loved the ending. I enjoy stories that let you embroider the ending in your own imagination.
