A very good woman

I just finished watching ‘A good woman’, a film with Helen Hunt and Scarlett Johansson, I commented on an interesting conversation from that film here https://autisticandme.com/2022/05/08/it-depends-on-the-imagination/

It turned out it was a good movie, one that teaches us of the importance of not jumping to conclusions. Also the fact that it had so many characters stopped bothering me quickly as I realised that some of them are there only to demonstrate what the society was like at the time, in 1930. However, the film talks about some strong emotions and it may be difficult to watch if you’re overwhelmed with whatever is going on in your own life, I had to pause several times for that very reason, but in general I’d really recommend it.

At some point in the film Helen Hunt makes this comment ‘People call something an experience they usually mean it was a mistake’. She was right, wasn’t she? That is a pattern naturally occurring in communication, but it’s good that she uses the word ‘usually’ as we can’t fully rely on patterns when trying to assess social situations.
