    I founds it depressing in how poorly she was treated. And, at the end... won't spoil it for others..... I felt sad quite a while afterwards. DH felt the same. Definitely was not a feel good movie.

    You did not see the element of uplift in there at all?

    Hawkins was the heroine in the worst adaptation of a Jane Austen work I have ever seen. And then there was a flm where she played someone preternaturally happy. i think the film was called Happy or Happy Happy. It was also unwatchable.
    Sally Hawkins stars in s new film The Shape of Water which has every element I like, and it is a Guillermo Del Toro film. So, I will have to see it. It is a romantic film about a humanoid monster, a sci fi film.

    Here is hoping she does not completely ruin this film for me.

    I'd like to see Maudie...

    But also, I just learned that Hugh Jackman is playing P.T. Barnum in a movie out this Christmas. I'd love to see that. I might even go to the movies to see it--haven't been in a movie theatre in ages. But Hugh Jackman playing P.T. Barnum? Awesome. Plus, P.T. Barnum founded the hospital I was born in, so I feel a bit of kinship with him.
