I didn’t expect that having my life portrayed in front of me, my idiosyncrasies, frustrations, secret desires, would be poignantly portrayed right before my eyes. It’s crazy! I must be getting crazy. I was both laughing and crying the whole time I was watching the movie. My youngest daughter was probably wondering what was happening to …
