Globo shows the dramatic comedy Running with Scissors in Corujão of the dawn of this Tuesday (2), to 2h (Brasília time). Launched in 2006, the film is based on the writer’s real family experiences North American Augusten Burroughs.
The story takes place in 1971. Augusten (Jack Kaeding), a boy of only six, finds himself divided between troubled parents. Her mother, Deirdre (Annette Bening), is a poet who has no published books, but still has hope that one day this will happen.
The father, Norman (Alec Baldwin), is an alcoholic mathematics teacher who long ago gave up understanding his wife and his son’s early behavior.
When the Burroughs’ marriage falls apart, the matriarch decides to go to therapy with Dr. Finch (Brian Cox), an eccentric and alternative psychologist. The attempt fails, and the relationship ends.
Deirdre lives in a hotel. Already grown up, Augusten (Joseph Cross) is in the care of the Finchs. The boy tries to get close to the members of his new family, but soon discovers that his life will be a real hell.
Directed by Ryan Murphy, the film also features Joseph Fiennes, Evan Rachel Wood and Gwyneth Paltrow in the cast.
See the other films that will be shown at this week’s Corujão: Lisbela and the Prisoner and We Have Vacancies (Wednesday), Captain Phillips (Thursday) and Mind Hunters and The Patient: The Tancredo Neves Case (Friday).
