'Thanks for Sharing' International Trailer

It's the perfect blend of indie sensibility and commercial appeal. Plus, it just looks smart. (Thinking about it, that's not such a tough thing these days).

And, that cast. Love Mark Ruffalo. He nails every role to the floor. The guy could recite the alphabet and audiences would be slack-jawed. Gwyneth Paltrow is fairly radiant. She and Ruffalo click. Tim Robbins brings all that technique (I thought he quit or something).

Director Stuart Blumberg is trustworthy here, with this subject. Come on, the guy wrote 'The Kids Are Alright', and there's something about him that says, "Don't worry. I know what I'm doing with this."

And that story: A sex addict in group sessions meets hot babe and is afraid of their relationship being ruined by his condition. That can't have a pat ending. Can't. Not possible. Like, just what ending could you tack onto this that people could see coming?

'Thanks for Sharing' has to be good. Has to. Therapy starts 9/20.
