This is pretty depressing despite being a bit lackluster. Paltrow delivers a decent performance, but the plot line and the overall story lacks so much. It’s hard to pinpoint when it starts to fail, but it does. We watch the development of Hughes and Plath’s relationship in the earlier years, and we see show jovial she is. Yet, shifts in her life lead her to her unfortunate suicide. Falling in love is definitely not for the weary. It’s heavy on your soul and state of mind. We could only be so fortunate to have someone who brings us joy.
