You''ve got it right.. .Step mom had more to do with the issues of sacrifices, insecurities of the two women and their subseqent understanding. Susan didnt even know she was about to die at the time of divorce and she resented Julia. Also, Julia was a very hip and independent character initially.
The husband was practically a show piece
Good for him. First off for buying the rights when he''s doing a remake or adaptation. This is rarely done by b''wood directors when they get inspired or copy.
Second for bringing such a wonderful story to the Indian cinema. I doubt very much that a majority of the aam janta has seen Stepmom. Now I just hope K does justice to the story line.
btw.. If I remember correctly, Julia and Richard were already involved in a relationship during/after Susan + Richard''s divorce. Susan wasn''t encouraging him to go get married in order to get a nanny for the children after she dies (from cancer). Also Julia initially had no interest in child-rearing, etc. The main themes in the story were: dealing with death and separation (Susan + kids), developing maternal instincts (Julia), and bonding (Julia + Susan + kids). Further, if memory serves, Richard didn''t have much to do in the film other than look pretty... I wonder if K will change that in his film since the hero plays a large role in typical b''wood films.
wait what? Stepmom is NOT about an ex-wife! Stepmom was about this woman who married this guy, had kids, and was diagnosed with some life threatening disease. She was told she would die soon. So she urges the husband to get a new wife so she would take care of her children. He does. And the whole movie is about the 1st wife and kids adjusting to this new woman who really just wants to be part of their lives instead of taking the 1st woman''s place. It was a beautiful movie not some Ekta crap drama that Karan is going to turn this into. Jeez...i hate B-version movies that fail to capture the actual essence of the original movie. Gggh!!
