His father is a university professor with psoriasis and "the loving, affectionate and outgoing personality of petrified wood". The best performance belongs to Evan Rachel Wood, who brings enough spunk and energy to Natalie to relieve the tedium when she's around. Perhaps calculating that more is better, Running with Scissors features not one but two dysfunctional families in movies, there is no room for the so-called "normal" family. This book tested my patience from begining to end and in the end I was very dissapointed. The good doctor also allows his year-old daughter to set up home with a man in his 40s.
