For those of us standing on the outside of marriage looking in, one of the baffling things is how two people can spend decades together and not know everything about each other. "45 Years" proves there is still mystery to be had in unsettling ways. Which is both a scary proposition and a relief. It is scary in the sense of the context of this movie. What if the thing you discover rattles your whole world and you are forced to come face to face with a new reality? The relief comes from knowing mystery shall never leave the relationship. With the passing of time, comes the opportunity to learn more about each other. For those of us afraid to take the dive, this idea should help shake off some of our fears. For these reasons and many more, I recommend this film.
Be good to each other,
