Running with Scissors movie review
Starring: Annette Bening, Gwyneth Paltrow, Alec Baldwin, and Joseph Cross
"Running with Scissors" is based on the personal memoirs of Augusten Burroughs. "Running with Scissors" is one of the weirdest movies I've seen in a long time. We kept watching it because it was too weird not to finish.
The acting in "Running with Scissors" is great. Everyone did an incredible job. And it was an interesting movie, and difficult to imagine that it's a true story and that people could actually live and do things like that.
I don't know that I can recommend "Running with Scissors" because it's a good movie. But I can recommend it because of how good the acting is in it. Let me know what you think.

The story of how a boy was abandoned by his mother and how he, later, abandoned her. The year he'll be 14, the parents of Augusten Burroughs (1965- ) divorce, and his mother, who thinks of herself as a fine poet on the verge of fame, delivers him to the eccentric household of her psychiatrist, Dr. Finch. During that year, Augusten avoids school, keeps a journal, and practices cosmetology. His mother's mental illness worsens, he takes an older lover, he finds friendship with Finch's younger daughter, and he's the occasional recipient of gifts from an unlikely benefactor. Can he survive to come of age? -- from imdb
