Junebug was one of those independent movies that excited critics worldwide, with one small (and highly egotistic) exception being me. I found the whole experience laborious and have since recommended it be used in clinical settings as a cure for insomnia. I’ve subsequently had conversations with those who insist that they loved the film, though when pressed for reasons they’ve provided little that satisfies, or at least not enough that would drive me to the rental store for a second take.
If you’re interested in learning why I didn’t enjoy myself you can read the review here.
