How could *anyone* enjoy a movie like this?
What exactly do people get out of watching devastatingly tragic movies such as this? What could possibly compel someone to actually want to experience such a profoundly awful narrative? It just doesn't seem within the realm of possibility that a person would say something like "I'm going to go spend my hard-earned money and valuable time to watch a movie where a mother is forced to decide which one of her children will live and which one will die, and then commits suicide." I simply cannot understand why any person in their right mind would voluntarily do that to themselves, and I do not believe I ever will.
