This is one of my most favorite character study movies. Theron is this beautiful psuedo-successful women who is beginning to suspect her life is shit. That's because she still lives it according to high school law. So she tries to capture that time in life again, when she was thriving, by going back to her old town and trying to steal back her happily married high school boyfriend. The nuances in this movie are so honest, so careful. So HONEST.
