Where’d You Go Bernadette?

After 9pm, the quality of the film determines whether I take an expensive nap or fully engaged.  I slept through at least half of the film.  Not a strong enough script to compete against the book.  Read the book.

From the desk of Dr. Dion Metzger:

Nobody can do anxiety like Cate Blanchett. Despite her accurate depiction, “Where’d You Go, Bernadette” didn’t even come close to Blanchett’s Oscar-winning role as the troubled socialite in “Blue Jasmine”.  I’ve said it before…not all books are meant to be translated to film. This New York Times Bestseller was a flop on screen. It’s always a little painful to see an award winning actress in a subpar script. I wouldn’t bother watching this one but shout out for the psychiatric references in this film actually being accurate (adjustment disorder, tardive dyskinesia, voluntary hospitalization…oooh la la).
