The embarrassing Ricky Gervais usually convinces me to skip the Golden Globes award show that aired last night. This time, Viola Davis looked so spectacular she was a good reason to tune in. As it turns out, there was another reason, as well. Did you notice a theme running through the nominated dramas?
1950s married women find unexpected love and complications.
MAD MAX: FURY ROAD
Furiosa frees sex slaves.
Vengeance in the frozen north. Hugh Glass frees a native sex slave.
Sex slave and her son escape.
Sexual abuse in the Catholic church is finally exposed.
I am not sure what is going on. But if the movies reflect our reality at all, we appear to be very angry and sex is not working out for us. We have been abused and our imaginations run to the most heinous of situations. Our master movie makers are creating stories that focus on the horrible. We are desperate for connection, but not that hopeful.
