Ordinary People (1980) 
Review - Ordinary People (1980)
4/4 stars

When Conrad Jarrett (Timothy Hutton) lost his brother at sea, the lives of him and his parents, Calvin (Donald Sutherland) and Beth (Mary Tyler Moore), are changed forever. Conrad’s journey through self-forgiveness is portrayed in the Best Picture winning film, “Ordinary People.”

This movie made me realize how few Best Picture winners have teenagers as main characters. It also made me realize that I end up thinking those are the best ones.

This is also one of the only movies I’ve seen that has dealt with suicide in such a prominent way. It’s a very touchy and unfortunately ever-increasing subject that is worked with extremely well.

While the acting is a bit off, the story and the editing work excellently together. “Ordinary People” is a very passionate film that would certainly go on my list of “must-see” films.

Acting: 8/10
Writing: 9/10
Video/Editing: 10/10
Audio/Music: 10/10
Entertainment: 10/10

Final Score: 9.4/10
