This movie reminds me of the last line of Northanger Abbey, where Jane Austen poses this conundrum: "I leave it to be settled, by whomsoever it may concern, whether the tendency of this work be altogether to recommend parental tyranny, or reward filial disobedience."
Somewhere I came across a reference to this movie (The History of Mr. Polly) and thought it sounded interesting. My assignment, if you should choose to accept it, is to watch the movie and tell me what you think of it. :)
The description of the movie pegs him as a daydreamer. Now, I hate to talk down about daydreamers, being one myself, but this man is a totally irresponsible and lazy individual. I like a movie where the characters get their just desserts in the end. This one seems to reward Mr. Polly's self-centered and infantile behavior. The moral of the story seems to be, if your marriage stinks, get out any way you can, even though your own foolish choices got you into trouble in the first place. Anyway, you get

In other news, I'm enjoying lots of Thanksgiving leftovers! I hope you are as well...if you like that sort of thing.
That's all I have for now. Enjoy your weekend(s)! :)
