Note: I am not a fan of Plath's work. Wen to see "Sylvia" with my wife Friday night. I have to say, I like when a director and actors are subtle and don't beat us over the head with emotion, etc. But, I felt "Sylvia" actually could have shown a bit more of Plath's anguish. Not to say the movie was terrible, just maybe a bit too subtle for such a tortured woman.
