Ever read' The Road' by Coemc McCarthy?

I had to stop reading it as I was depressed for days after reading a few chapters, it seems they are making a film of it as well.

Try that one, jesus.

However, have just watched Pride and Prejudice (again, again) and feel all warm and fuzzy.

When I said "Margot At The Wedding" was depressing, I didn't mean 'boring' - I meant seriously depressing.

Take this plot summary from IMDb.......... gives you some idea..........

A slice of family life: sisters, husbands, children, history, secrets, jealousies. Margot and her teen son, Claude, travel from Manhattan to her family's Long Island home, occupied by sister Pauline, Pauline's daughter, and Malcolm, the slacker Pauline will marry outdoors that week under a tree neighbors want removed. Backbiting marks family discussion, particularly between the sisters and in Margot's cutting remarks to Claude. Pauline tells Margot a secret that Margot promptly tells Claude. Margot dislikes Malcolm and undermines him. She also has marital problems and a lover nearby. People are cruel, inside and outside their families. Is there a refuge for Margot or for Pauline?
