Has anyone seen it yet? I have an upcoming ticket and I am curious about what the evening will present.

Just give the world Love.

I went last night and was so disappointed. Based on the PR blurb, I thought it would be a compelling family drama, but it was not. The book was so "light", it felt like it was written by a high-schooler and I was filling in backstory in my mind more than I should have had to for a "seen it before" plot.

The direction was also a problem for me. Be prepared for a LOT of screaming arguments and roles are so overacted, I kept wanting it toned down - characters are angry, we get it.

I did think the set design was really good even though some of the scene changes were cumbersome.

If you still plan to go, wait a while. I'm' sure it will continue to be on discount sites.

Would you mind spoiling the plot, including the ending, for me?

Was curious, but based on buzz I'm not going to waste my time.
