What you did was exactly right. Fuck what others think. If you find a film is running you through the ringer, then just get away from it if you're in a cinema, or if you're with someone and it's on the TV just ask if we can watch something else. Almost any real friend or partner will be glad you spoke up. I mean, come on ... is there any such thing as something important
on television? Apart from Warner Brothers cartoons, CSI and Judge Judy?
What's really curious about this is that I remember when I was growing up, my parents would both immediately say so if what was on the tube was something they didn't want to watch. After awhile we all knew what Mom and Dad wouldn't be up for, and those programs or films we just didn't watch. It was okay.
Well, there we go - learn something new every day I guess. It's about time I picked up on that example - from 40 years ago!!
Much slow learning,
