Big Eyes: A Movie about Scams & Marriage
The movie Big Eyes, raises some interesting family law issues. The movie opens in the late 1950s, as Margaret (played by Amy Adams) is leaving her husband to start a new life in San Francisco. She soon falls in love with Walter Keane (played by Christoph Waltz), a smooth-talking artist who is taken with Margaret’s unique paintings of children with very large eyes. Walter and Margaret soon marry and Walter begins to take credit for Margaret’s popular paintings. Initially, Margaret is on board with the ruse, but she soon begins to feel guilty over the deception. She ulitmately leaves Walter and proves she is the creator of the paintings of the enchanting children with large eyes.
So, what can we learn from this movie? Many people who are facing divorce feel they got “scammed.” The woman you married may have presented herself one way only to dramatically change once you put a ring on her finger. While your situation probably does not involve falsifying the author of a work of art, you nonetheless may feel dupped.
On a more positive note, the movie also demonstrates that divorce is not the end of the world. It is difficult and emotional, but you are not alone.
