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.
