One of the best movies I've seen in a while. I was totally engrossed in this textured, lugubrious underworld of 1970's upper-class Connecticut. Repression is the unsaid elephant-in-the-room. It's a tragedy of missed connections & human longing, & sadly the difficulty in escaping our own fears. Directors Gore Verbinski & Sam Mendes have borrowed liberally in their own suburban critiques. Lee fashioned a masterpiece.
