Movies watched in 2013: Love and Other Drugs (2010)
A woman suffering from Parkinson’s befriends a drug rep working for Pfizer against 1990s Pittsburgh backdrop.
I have been so late to the party with this film and for some reason decided that being painfully hungover on New Years Day was the perfect time to watch it. I liked this film but didn’t love it. Anne Hathaway and Jake Gyllenhaal are both incredibly beautiful creatures but I feel like we saw too many sex scenes to fill out the film.
The story behind it is so heartbreaking and I couldn’t even fathom being in that situation as either character. One of the most frustrating things I find about love is when there are so many factors that are out of our hands that affect a relationship that both people are fighting so hard at to keep together.
