Valentine's tragedy

You would think that "Legends of the Fall" might be the perfect Valentine's Day movie. I mean it not only has Brad Pitt in it, but a long, blonde haired Brad Pitt in his 20's. Plus the gorgeous Julia Ormand. Put them together in this historical setting of the early 1900's and I expect plenty of romance and sexiness!

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."
