A film doesn't have to be nominated for an Academy Award for it to be good or great. Pippa Lee is a perfect example. A really good film with exceptional writing. A lot of experiences showing the dark side as well as the bright--Pippa is no different then many of us, having lived a previous life less ordinary. She is a survivor. In the end, she has survived far worse travails then a husband that is cheating on her--the signs were there, or so it would seem by her ability to literally run away emotionally, physically and spiritually. Her defense was simply to not be there anymore, just like she should couldn't be there anymore for her mother; the same would happen with her husband. I love you. You love me, but drugs or other women separate you from me, so to hell with you, I'm going to live; survive.
A great movie!
Way to go Rebecca! Talent doesn't fall far from the tree!
Well said, everyone. I really liked this film more than I imagined I would based on ratings. My husband was out of town and I thought this would be a good woman's movie. I was right! Perhaps this film is meant for women of a certain age - empty nesters with adult children. I thought Robin was great, and I didn't expect too much, but was greatly surprised.
