Someday This Pain Will Be Useful To You
Pete: I would recommend this film to anyone who has struggled with being an introvert at any point in their life. One of the most under-rated films of all time.

Brigette: I thought this was going to be one of those indie films that tried too hard, but instead, I found a very heartfelt story. I could really relate to James and his struggles with entering an adult world that doesn’t value highly sensitive people and certainly doesn’t allow for how easily overwhelmed they can get. I loved the slow unfurling of the story and the insights that Lucy Liu’s character imparts at the end. The soundtrack was perfectly suited to the film, indie but heartfelt. I always try to watch the film first and I’m very curious to see how closely it followed the book by Peter Cameron. If only all young people had supportive guidance into adulthood.
