Super-wife escaped the hundred plus temperatures of yesterday and the searing sun by going to the movies where we saw "People Like Us." I was pleasantly surprised. It was about a guy who reconnects with family and connects with a sister he never knew he had.
Lots of pretty people in it like Michelle Pfeiffer and others. The storyline touch a nerve in me, kind of like connecting the wrong terminals on a car battery. Maybe not that extreme. But, it produced a few sparks of thought and memory.
What's it like to discover that your dad had a whole another family or in some cases families?
The main character in this movie discovered that he had a half-sister that his dad had kept silent about. He had to come to grips with a lot of issues involving himself and his family. That's not always an easy task.
I often think about my (half) sister who I never met. She died in the country of Cyprus. I don't know a whole lot more than that. I did see a picture of her as an adult. I saw her death certificate written in Greek which I can read a little.
Walking out of the theater, I wondered who would play my mother in a movie. Probably not Pfeiffer.
