IN THE MEDIA
Maybe Romantic Dramas Aren’t Dead After All
I think I may have cinematic PTSD from the wave of truly awful movies that followed in the success of “The Notebook,” most of them also based on novels by Nicholas Sparks. They’re a rough spot in the history of filmmaking, and I went into Vicky Wight’s “The Lost Husband” expecting more of the same overcooked tripe.
Much to my surprise, “The Lost Husband” is a solid adult drama, a movie that’s too soft at times but more often tender with its characters.
