You mean it is not a fairy-tale ending for ersatz "jail bait"?

“ Grayson is working with her business partner and lover Fran (Eiza González), as their next target, Jennifer Peterson (Dianne Wiest), proves to be more than they bargained for. That's because she's the son of the dangerous, donut-eating, smoothie-drinking Roman Lunyov, who is played by Peter Dinklage in top form.”

Wait, “... she’s the son of...”? Whut?

How can you write an article about conservatorship and not mention disability? Disabled activists have been fighting to abolish guardianship and other forms of community confinement for decades. Perhaps mention the marginalized groups who are most impacted by oppression? Rather than just focusing on rich, white, cis, abled people...

@4: That would be a good topic. But this article doesn't preclude that.

Whenever there’s a pile of money on the table, the wolves come out to play. The film, regardless of the scripting limitations, still sounds intriguing, and thank you for the heads up. This is a very relevant issue, with many people getting fleeced by these carpetbaggers who endear themselves to their victims and subsequently take them to the cleaners. The self-serving cynicism of these so-called benefactors or personal representatives is appalling, and many times these people are family members, as with the Britney Spears case, although she was in rehab, shaving her head and being eccentric, so the concern regarding her life skills and wealth management is understandable. Additionally, her creative ability has been called into question after a series of desultory creative offerings in the Miley Cyrus vein of sexually provocative mediocrity. Nevertheless, Britney Spears should be allowed to control her own affairs because it is her wealth that she earned herself, and various interested parties come across as parasites. This isn’t the first instance where family members have taken advantage of another family member’s wealth, and many estates follow this despicable path because the deceased estate-holder cannot defend themselves from theft by various interested parties who are involved, at least tangentially to the estate. Many personal representatives cook the books and pay themselves first, knowing that as executors they have a tremendous amount of discretion regarding the disbursement of an individual’s wealth, whether that person is deceased or incapacitated.
