I had serious trepidations about The Good Girl, starring Friend Jennifer Aniston and the acting oddballs Tim Blake Nelson and John C. Reilly.
But it was very much worth seeing – a film about convenience, confession, cuckolds, confidence, and confidentiality. I really enjoyed seeing Ms. Aniston stretch every emotional tendon in her brain to make sure that the audience understood the complexity of her character and know the tortuous decisions she is forced to make in the narrative. The film is very well written, and if a bit shrink-wrapped, I highly recommend it.
Final word: it’s a bit of a cross between American Beauty, with its suburban angst and relationship hells, and Magnolia, with its casualness about difficult and real human relationships.
