Este filme de 2006, Little Children, mostra um conjunto de personagens-tipo que, ao mesmo tempo, conseguem fazer uma empolgante história bem perto dos momentos menos felizes presentes no quotidiano americano, quiçá da sociedade independentemente da sua nacionalidade. Temos duas personagens-chave, representadas por Kate Winslet e Patrick Wilson, e por acrescento Jennifer Connelly. 

As lutas contra as tentações vividas numa relação amorosa, as desilusões e erros são elementos que abundam nesta história que cruza vários destinos, que nem sempre têm um final feliz.

“After all, what was adult life but one moment of weakness piled on top of another? Most people just fell in line like obedient little children, doing exactly what society expected of them at any given moment, all the while pretending that they’d actually made some sort of choice.”

“She took care of everyone with the same no-nonsense air of friendliness and good cheer that made her seem so paradoxically wholesome, as if she were convinced that being a slut and being a really nice person were just two things that naturally went together.” 


Narrator: Sexual tension is an elusive thing, but Kathy had pretty good radar for it. It was like someone had turned a knob to the right, and the radio station clicked in so loud and clear it almost knocked her over. Once she became aware of the connection between them, it seemed impossible that she'd missed it before.

Mary Ann: Oh that's nice. So now cheating on your husband makes you a feminist? 
Sarah Pierce: No, no, no. It's not the cheating. It's the hunger - the hunger for an alternative and the refusal to accept a life of unhappiness.

Brad Adamson: Do you feel bad about this? 
Sarah Pierce: No, I don't. 
Brad Adamson: I do. I feel really bad.

“No, it's just like when you're dead and you try to remember being alive, it'll be like thinking of winter on the hottest day of the year. You'll know it's true, but you won't really believe it.”

May McGorvey: There are four columns of lonely women in here, and only one of lonely men. The odds are on our side. Now why wouldn't any of these women want to meet a nice person like you? 
Ronald James McGorvey: I'm not a nice person.

I'm Good Now...
