Not that this gave me any sort of happy feeling or anything close to it, but I quite enjoyed this. She was very real, like, real enough for me to wonder what specific person from Olivia had to have been the inspiration for this character. Now that I think about it, all the characters had that realness to them; kudos to the writer. Looking back at how much I enjoyed Citizen Ruth and the character of Ruth Stoops, this film kind of made me stop and consider the idea that someone like Ruth really shouldn't be just thrown into a comedy, no matter how cleverly written, as there are so many actual Ruth Stoops' out there, smelling drugs, children living confused in someone else's home, etc., etc. That stuff isn't funny, it shouldn't be made light of.
Can't think of anything else specific, just disturbingly well done.
