The Wrestler

Eli 7.6 had a friend over for a playdate on Friday after school, so I ducked out to go see "The Wrestler."

When I came home, Gloria asked "How was the movie?"

"It hurt," I said.

"What does that mean?" she asked.

"It hurt," I repeated. "A lot."

That's the only answer I could give. Maybe this movie won't affect you so much if you're younger, but if you're in your late 30's or older, it lands like a sledgehammer. It's brilliant, and Mickey Rourke is utterly sensational, but it's not easy to watch.

And, of course, you absolutely must go see it.
