But no. It turned out to be a depressing tale of loss, grief, depression, unrequited love, and one poor man who ruins his own life and the lives of everyone around him because of the demons that haunt him. The funny thing is, as we were watching it, he liked the movie more than I did. Everytime some one died an untimely and tragic death, I wanted to turn it off. But he was fascinated by Brad Pitt's character's psychological roller coaster. So I ended up watching it all.
No more historical pieces with long blonde haired leading men for me. I fear I'll be tricked into another tragedy. Although it was cool to spot an actress in the film who is now more well known for role in the tv series "The 400."
