Silver Linings Playbook and a Poetry Slam – The Reluctant Psychoanalyst Reflects on Female Sexuality as a Powerful Healing Force
The Reluctant Wife recommended that we watch Silver Linings Playbook on date night and I somewhat reluctantly agreed. Her description of an award winning film that depicted the trials and tribulations of a guy who is bipolar, out of the hospital AMA and falling in love with someone who helps him get better frankly sounded like going to work. And I was concerned about how accurate the portrayal of mental illness would be and how much time I would spend evaluating that and so on and so forth. Well… This is a delightful little film. And one that I think says something very interesting – not so much about mental illness, but about the function that sex can serve in relationships between men and women.
