Emotional French drama explores the secrets and lies of one very troubled family

The Past is an incredibly subtle movie. Everything is played in low-key, soft voice. Very little is explicit. Mostly because none of these people wants to talk about anything that’s happening. Or has happened.

Over the weekend, actress Kate Winslet and her husband, director Sam Mendes, announced that they have officially separated after less than seven years of marriage. Hot damn! I think I’ve totally got a shot here. I met Ms. Winslet a few years ago during a press junket for Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. Check out my interview with her from 2004. Speaking from personal experience, the lady is incredibly smart and well spoken, as you might well suspect. She’s also very pretty in person. I’m not saying we flirted or anything. But I am saying I’d leave the wife and kids on Christmas morning, if she asked.
