One thought on “Loved (1997)

  1. Robin Wright’s acting in this movie is very good so I can understand why she received awards and nominations. But I dislike the writing so much. They made Hedda, the main character, immature, annoying and selfish. She made all victims of the abuser look dumb, embarrassing and pathetic.
