Monday is Dysfunctional Family Day
Went to see the new intensely funny and disturbing film, "Running with Scissors" tonight.
Annette Benning MUST win the Oscar for her performance as a crazy mother who "gives" her son to a psychotic psychiatrist and his looney family. (Hopefully Hillary Swank will cut her a break this year.)
It's based on the real-life story of Augusten Burroughs, who survived a childhood with a crazy mother and a emotionally distant father. Not sure why the movie touched me so deeply.
