Brian O'blivion's rating of the film Mona Lisa Smile

"INT - DUSTY WAREHOUSE. Julia Roberts unveils a drab Pollock painting. Her students, who still have some common sense left, forcefully try to learn a valuable lesson about art. Closeups of messy paint drips. Cue the violins." Another pretentious and "progressive" anti-50s anti-traditionalism Hollywood film about how getting married and becoming a housewife and a mother is the worst thing to happen to a woman.
