Spoiled Children of Divorce

Here’s a link to the IMDb.com Database which gives information about subject matter in movies. This one directs to the “Single Mother” movies: http://www.imdb.com/keyword/single-mother/. I also found 3 movies listed under “Divorced Father” and others under “Divorce.” At usual there is no category for Kids from Divorce, probably because there is no proper descriptor.

I looked up “Kramer v. Kramer” and came up with the link for “Custody Battle.”  http://www.imdb.com/keyword/custody-battle/

“The Squid and the Whale” is probably the most recent movie about growing up in Divorce.  To be honest I was pretty bored in that movie. There was some explanation of the title at the very end of the movie but by then I was completely spacing out so I missed the message.

Life in Divorce is just so tense and edgy and everyone is trying so hard to keep the feelings down in order to avoid any explosions.  Growing up in Divorce is a never ending story where the most anal retentive members succeed.  The subtle repressions and manipulations just don’t exist in Hollywood.  In order to put across a message on the big Screen you need to put a Horse’s Head in the Bed and no single parent is going to take their kid to see that.
