Wild Rose

I probably values this a little bit more than I should have based on the different feel than this movie had over so many movies like it that have come before.  After all, we’ve seen this movie a ton of times – a wildly talented but very flawed person overcomes all obstacles to become famous.  While some of that happened in this movie it really wasn’t that movie at all.  Usually it is drugs, alcohol or some other vice that does the damage.  In this movie the character is flawed in ways that are relate-able to most of us (especially those with kids) and for that reason it makes it almost that much more uncomfortable to watch.

The ending is fantastic, and in retrospect had I paid attention a little more I would have seen it coming.
