It was really well done, however, I thought they really brushed over her mental illness and severe depression. She had a haunted soul, and they made her out to be only possessive wife without touching on what really tormented her. They also said little about her father, which was such a driving force in her poetry.

    Exactly. They barely covered ted's affairs, he had more than one. And made her out to look like a total shrew without touching on the effect Otto's death had on her and if I hadn't known the story I really wouldn't have guessed that she suffered from depression. Though I do think Paltrow and Craig both pulled off their characters well. I would have alos like there to have been a little more poetry (both hers and his) instead of just the few snippets given.
