What was wrong with Peggy?


Why was she acting weird all the time, why did she stop speaking to her father, why did she refuse to talk to uncle Russ, what was her problem?

reply

Really?

I think she had trouble dealing with the fact that she was surrounded by killers.

reply

Huh, what do you mean, her father showed her only love...

reply

She knew her dad was into shady shit. She saw him beat that man outside of the grocery store. Then when Hoffa disappeared she knew he was involved. She was fond of Hoffa.

Are you being serious when you say "showed her only love"?

reply

He beat that guy because he shoved her, she should have been grateful. Anyway, he probably should have explained to her what he is doing, from an early age: "Daddy is killing some very bad people, because otherwise they will kill us, OK pumpkin?"...

reply

But that wasn't the case. He was a contract killer. He was doing it for money, not to protect his family. Are you just trolling?

reply

He protected his Mafia family, it was just as important as his real family, once you are in it, you can't just leave it otherwise you real family will suffer.

reply

I suppose that is true, but he made the decision to go down that road and his daughter didn't approve.

The Grocer shoved her, but he didn't plow her through a plate glass door, and he didn't stomp on her hand until the bones were broken. It was disproportionately brutal, and she was thoroughly embarrassed over it.

Then why didn't she say anything when the grocer was beaten, she could have stopped her dad by shouting at him: "Hey dad, enough, what's the matta' with you!!?"

It wasn't Peggy, it was everyone else.

She just handled it different.

You either get a Peggy Sheeran or a Victoria Gotti.
What are you going to do?

Rumour has it that Anna Paquin had trouble remembering her lines for the movie😂
