Plot Outline: A group of people are struggling with sex addiction and relationships in their lives.

Rating: 4/5

What a truly phenomenal film! I had no idea that it was produced by Edward Norton. Now that I know, it all makes perfect sense.

I honestly do not know much about sex addiction or the everyday struggles that come along with it so I do not know if this film gives an accurate representation of those struggles. However, it did seem to do a good job sharing the experiences and struggles of people dealing with any sort of addiction.

First of all, each and every character was fantastic. The characters were all so real, and complex, and genuine. They felt like real people with real feelings and real struggles. They weren’t so black and white. Each character, especially Adam (Mark Ruffalo) and Phoebe (Gwyneth Paltrow) struggled with conflicting feelings.

The film brought each of the characters to vulnerable, uncomfortable emotional places you don’t see very often in films. The raw emotions felt so real and the characters bring the audience there with them. There were times I felt sad, hurt, and uncomfortable throughout the film, which I absolutely loved. I felt invested in the characters and their relationships.

The music in this film was perfectly selected. It always did a great job of heightening the emotions in each scene.

Overall, Thanks For Sharing was fantastic and I highly recommend it!
