Good Girl, The
Source: Catholic News Service
Disconcerting story in which a small-town Texas store clerk (Jennifer Aniston), trapped in a stale marriage with a pot-smoking house painter (John C. Reilly), has an affair with a brooding young man (Jake Gyllenhaal) which unravels her life in a myriad of complications and problems. Director Miguel Arteta's well-acted, character-driven piece has moments of genuine emotion and humor, but it is nonetheless troubling in its casual presentation of characters trying to escape the banality of their lives through obsession, betrayal and violence. An extramarital affair, a few sexual situations, brief frontal nudity, a suicide, some drug content and sporadic rough language with profanity.
