Lisa L. (LisaL) from BLOOMINGTON, IN
Reviewed on 8/18/2011...
Julia Roberts is great as the art history professor trying to instill what we consider "normal" modern-day values into a then not-so-liberted world. While there is factually nothing wrong with honoring a woman as a wife and mother, this movie portrays the downside: when being a wife/motherhood in a 1950s environment is a degrading experience where the woman is treated like property or a sort of suburbian slave to her career-tracking male spouse.

Whereas motherhood and being a stay-at-home mom is a highly honorable activity, this movie shows the stark contrast of this not being appreciated and elevated to the valuable role it does hold: that of shaping and forming stable children that grow into contributing adults in society.

If you've every scratched your head at some of the youth of today look no further than the way many kids are now "raised" the kids with working mothers who haven't had the time and care devoted to them like it was in earlier times. So: This movie does make you think and draw your own opinions. Also has a great sideline romantic aspect.

Thoroughly entertaining. Highly recommended.
