Getting back to this list, I saw a few more since my last post:
Everything Put Together--Angie (Radha Mitchell) and her circle of friends all seem to be surrounded by pregnancy and children. But her own newborn dies suddenly and her husband and friends do not seem to know how to react.
While the topic is obviously depressing and is played out creepily at times in a horror-movie fashion, I think the emotions that Angie experiences, and her friends’ treatment of her, are probably (unfortunately) true to life. I can understand the friends’ POV in their inability to handle a delicate situation. The film does end up on a hopeful light for Angie. This is definitely a human story that many people can identify with in terms of grief issues.
How to Lose Friends and Alienate People--This is based on a memoir of someone who worked at a topical culture magazine (like Vanity Fair). The film shows us the rise and fall of Sidney Young (Simon Pegg). Sidney's model is the big editor Clayton Harding (Jeff Bridges), who had similar lowly beginnings. When Sidney is given the chance work for Clayton's magazine, he is befriended by the writer Alison (Kirsten Dunst) and meets many other high profile people such as a beautiful but vapid rising star (Megan Fox). At first Sidney does his utmost to join this soulless world, but as the story progresses, he questions just how much of his personal integrity he is willing to give up.
