Hi Rosemary,

No, I didn't think you noticed an anti-male bias as such, and neither did I  while viewing it, but the things that stood out for you -- a wonderful woman living an emotionless home life with two thoughtless, rude males, her husband and son -- made me wonder if that might possibly have been a subtext we both missed while watching it.  Sometimes directors and script writers have personal biases that come through in films, intentionally or unintentionally.  But there were also quite a few sympathetic, well-meaning characters (and I didn't think the husband and son were all that bad) -- which is one of the reasons it was such a life-affirming movie.
