I watched The Diary of a Teenage Girl
Today before I came to work. And, I have to say, it made me pretty uncomfortable. I understand it is based on a true story, and I can understand why the Mom resolved the situation with her daughter the way the she did. They only have each other, and Minnie, the daughter -- who was played with incredible swagger and bravery by Bel Powley -- is still a child.
I hope everything worked out for this family in real life. I relish difficult or upsetting movies, but this was one that I might not ever watch again. It is not bad. The film is very well done with some fantastic acting performances, but in the end, I guess it is just not my type of film personally.
