Initially, I thought I wouldn't watch it long, but I started to connect with it in the first 10 minutes or so. I thoroughly enjoyed the movie once I connected and the middle of the movie was like a montage in very slow motion, with beautiful, gentle music. That was the best part of the movie. I plan to watch it again, I might end up liking the entire movie?
I experience mild depression from Hashimoto's thyroid and have some ptsd, so, I usually don't mind staying home. I'm 68 though, and life kind of beat me down.
I also feel pressured when someone is supposed to visit, like she did when she had to hire the plumber.
I assumed that she was suffering from agoraphobia, or ptsd, and therefore feared leaving her home. Turned out that her malady was career-related, it was never specifically described.
I think one reviewer got it right when he / she said that Wes made her feel safe and loved and she could thereafter begin to try to cope with the outside world again.
I think the movie would resonate with many people who have lived high-stressed lives.
