You Hurt My Feelings

A novelist's longstanding marriage is suddenly upended when she overhears her husband giving his honest reaction to her latest book. Starring the brilliant and often very funny Julia Louis-Dreyfus the films deals with the depths of relationships and how seemingly strong foundations can be partly or fully fractured for the simplest of reasons.
Writer-professor Beth (Julia Louis-Dreyfus) and her husband Don (Tobias Menzies), a therapist, are as copacetic as can be even after decades of marriage -- still passionate, still sharing a single ice cream cone (to the disgust of their son), and still supporting each other professionally. Beth has a reasonably well-received memoir under her belt as well as a teaching gig at the New School, but is struggling to get her first novel published.
Don, despite feeling his age and mixing up his patients’ issues in sessions, has supported and praised Beth’s latest work, draft after draft. But one day, the unimaginable happens when Beth overhears a conversation in which he confides that he just doesn’t think her new project is very good. You Hurt My Feelings is a story about moderately happy people who are pretty good at holding everything together until they come face to face with the truth. Director Nicole Holofcener’s work in this subtle, thematic film is deceptively masterful, darkly comedic, and oh so familiar.
Director: Nicole Holofcener
Cast: Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Tobias Menzies, Michaela Watkins
We're so excited to welcome you back for our 24th year! Last year we welcomed new president Dan Watson and long-time Reel supporter Cheryl Stamper to our committee. This year, we're sad to say that original member Zelda Dwyer has decided to retire from the committee but we hope to see her often at movie nights.
Our second bit of news is that we've also retired the Reel Appreciation Card. While cards will no longer be stamped, completed appreciation cards can still be redeemed for a complimentary ticket up to and including our December 18, 2023 screening.
