Away from Her

I'm sick with cold today so have been flipping between wanting to sleep and feeling too achey and congested to actually sleep. I got up and decided to watch Away from Her, a Sarah Polley movie based on the short story by one of my favourite writers, Alice Munro.

I was prepared for a weepie, but just like Munro's stories, it's a slow simmer, with more restraint. There's lots of silence and space so the drama really sinks in rather than moving you to a sudden burst of emotion.
