The NYT reviews Little Children:

“That Ms. Winslet is so lovable makes the deficit of love in Sarah’s life all the more painful. She is married to an older man named Richard (Gregg Edelman), whose profession is marketing and whose vocation is masturbating to Internet pornography, pursuits that leave him with little time for his family.”

This little detail aside, I’m very much looking forward to this one.

    Not quite sure where this movie is going:

    “Sarah Pierce (Kate Winslet), sitting in that maternal playground klatch, insists to herself (in the narrator’s voice, an unsettling and effective touch) that while she may be in this world, she is not of it: “a researcher studying the behavior of typical suburban women, not a typical suburban woman.” Sarah has been to graduate school, and though she never received a doctorate, she did acquire the habit of living within the protective quotation marks that the postmodern academy hands out in addition to (and sometimes in lieu of) substantive knowledge.

    Her bouts of parental ineptness — forgetting to bring a snack to the park for her daughter, Lucy, for example — are both humiliating and self-aggrandizing. Sarah’s sloppiness is a sign, to herself and the others, that she is too fine a creature to be bothered with the trivia of parenthood. Ms. Winslet, as fine an actress as any working in movies today, registers every flicker of Sarah’s pride, self-doubt and desire, inspiring a mixture of recognition, pity and concern that amounts, by the end of the movie, to something like love.”

    Before going further in reading let me take the above NYT snippet out of context. My wife has a BS degree in mathematics from a Major U. She was a software development manager before 25. She became a manager for one of the large$t global hou$ehold name corporation$ before $he wa$ 30 – around 1$t pregnancy time. She walked from all of that under the influence of her faith and for our children. Never, looked back either and never really mi$$ed a thing.

    Let’s hear it for all those moms out there who didn’t take the blue pill, and had the courage to follow their vocations!
