Running with Scissors

SD

1978. Fourteen year old Augusten Burroughs narrates the story of his love / hate relationship with his mother, Deirdre Burroughs. As a child, Augusten loved and wanted to be like his theatrical acting mother, who aspires to be a famous writer, with her person being more renowned than her writing. She is critical of writers in general while not achieving that wanted fame because of not being a gifted enough a writer. Her writing is fueled largely by her manic depression. Augusten's now divorced parents had a turbulent relationship, his alcoholic father, Norman Burroughs, who is now largely out of his life by Norm's own choice. To deal with her mental issues, Deirdre has been seeing therapist Dr. Finch, whose actions are largely motivated by a singular issue. Out of circumstance, Augusten strikes a relationship with Dr. Finch's disparate but completely eccentric family: his quietly nervous wife, Agnes Finch; religiously fanatic eldest daughter Hope; rebellious younger daughter Natalie; and thirty-five year old recently adopted son Neil Bookman, who was and still is one of his patients. In Norm's self-imposed abandonment and Deirdre's own dealings with her unstable mental state, Augusten reluctantly finds in the Finches a surrogate family, far from the "normal" family within which he dreams for himself. But in his relationship with the Finches, Augusten will learn where he wants his mother to fit in his life, and what he has to do for himself to have the life he wants given the cards he was dealt. He will also find that he has a kindred soul who was not obvious to him at first glance.... Show more

Review

Running with Scissors is one of the best movies released in 2006. I accept that my expectations for this movie were very low before I watched it. The ending is like a Hitchcock hit, the final turn of the action that amazes and depresses. The fact is that the film is very good. An interesting plot, good, thrilling action with a few great scenes, good acting (especially supporting actors). The actors performed well and the story is great. The actors of Running with Scissors doesn't try to become stars of the evening, but they consistently play their roles. There is no better place than zxcmovies.com with all movies, it couldn't work without this movie, so I added it.... Show more
