Great Monologue on Marriage by Julianne Moore in “The Kids are All Right”

I absolutely loved this rant of J. Moore’s in Lisa Cholendenko’s “The Kids Are All Right.” And Ann Bennings silent cry-laugh-cheer following her wife’s diatribe was simply PERFECT.

Ramblings of a Neurotic Housewife

Love it.

Your mom and I are in hell right now and the bottom line is marriage is hard. It’s really fuckin’ hard. It’s just two people slogging through the shit, year after year, getting older, changing — fucking marathon, okay? So sometimes, you know, you’re together so long you stop seeing the other person, you just see weird projections of your own junk. Instead of talking to each other, you go off the rails, and act grubby, and make stupid choices, which is what I did. And I feel sick about it because I love you guys, and your mom, and that’s the truth. And sometimes you hurt the ones you love the most, and I don’t know why. You know, if I read more Russian novels… Anyway… I just wanted to say how sorry I am for what I did. I hope you’ll forgive me eventually. Thank you.
