Thoughts on "I Care a Lot"
I watched "I Care a Lot" last night, mainly for the Dinklage of it all. He's good in it, as are Rosamund Pike and Dianne Wiest, and while I found it entertaining, I didn't love it. I like cynical, dark comedy-dramas, but this movie had an opportunity to make some commentary on how the elderly are largely disposable and mistreated in this country, and I feel like it missed the mark. I don't pretend to know how they could've changed the screenplay to really make a point, but I feel like the one character in the movie that we empathize with, Jennifer (Weist), is given short shrift at the end. I just felt kind of empty about it. Curious to hear anyone else's thoughts.
