Normal is a movie featuring Carrie-Anne Moss of The Matrix acclaim.
It’s a pretty good drama, especially if you have any familiarity with – and frankly disdain of – boring suburban living, and the way seemingly random events can have drastic effects and changes to ones own life. (Don’t worry it’s just a movie!)
NORMAL explores the lives of three strangers who are struggling for control, having failed to confront their roles in a tragic accident two years earlier. Catherine is a well-to-do suburban mother who has lost the ability to connect on any level with her surgeon husband and twelve-year-old son after the loss of her elder son. Walt is a failed writer and philandering university professor who deals with impending middle age and haunting memories by sabotaging every relationship around him. Jordie is a sensitive teenager who made a wrong choice one night and although he’s paid the price, still can’t halt his journey downward.
The movie has seemingly gone through another pressing and release, with this newer, much bolder poster design and layout (perhaps to slap the Toronto Film Festival credential on it, or also perhaps to make it appear much more dynamic than it really is, than the everyday really is, which is more wearisome):
