Me (at first interval): Well, how are you finding it?
Him: It’s interesting. I wonder where they’re going to go with it?
Me: It feels to me like the leftovers between the interesting scenes of a minor Merchant Ivory film.
Him: Of course, if the whole point is revealing he’s gay, then it’s not very interesting, is it? I wonder what the conflict is?
Me: Do you stay through the second act, or cut your losses and leave at the first?
(We left at the second. By that time he was bored as well.)
