Running with Scissors

synopsis


Based on the personal memoirs of Augusten Burroughs and directed by Ryan Murphy (Creator of TV's Nip/Tuck), Running With Scissors is a wickedly funny, brave and moving tale of surviving a most unusual childhood. Augusten's mother (Annette Bening) is an unpublished and unstable poet whose marriage to his dad (Alec Baldwin) is in ruins. Soon, she is seeing a very eccentric therapist named Dr. Finch (Brian Cox) while Augusten (Joseph Cross) is left in the care of Finch's wacky family including his tightly wound daughter (Gwyneth Paltrow), youngest daughter Natalie (Evan Rachel Wood) and long-suffering wife Agnes (Jill Clayburgh). Constantly recording the events of his life in his journal as a way to cope, Augusten finds himself avoiding school, learning about love from an older man (Joseph Fiennes), and making big decisions at the tender age of just fifteen.

A shocker

Hardly worth commenting on. Its a mystery why this was rated highly by some reviewers. It is truly agonisingly boring.

Quirky, outrageous and enjoyable. A glimpse of a childhood overtaken by the mother's madness and the unscrupulous therapist who 'treats' her.
