Article Excerpt:

byMurtada Elfadl

What if that one thing that you cared about and that you built your life's work around was gutted away from you violently?Can you recover?How do you cope in the days and years that follow?These are some of the questions that Richard Linklater is trying to answer with his adaptation of the Maria Semple novel,Where'd You Go,Bernadette?

Bernadette (Cate Blanchett) is a harried mom (to Emma Nelson's 15 year old Bee) and wife (to Billy Crudup's Elgie) in Seattle.She spends her days in her big semi-rundown house trying to manage the small details of her family's life,but mostly running away from facing the minutiae and drudgery of those tasks by composing long email and text messages to her virtual assistant Manjula.But Bernadette's life wasn't always so banal and she wasn't in perpetual war with everyone she meets (Kristin Wiig plays her nemesis and next door neighbor).She used to be a genius architect with lots of promise until she suffered a major career setback that she couldn't recover from.

If you are a fan of the novel you might not recognize what you liked about it from this adaptation...
