Just listening to Bob Mondello’s review and the short sound clips from “Away From Her,” I don’t know if I’ll be able to watch it. I have a very sensitive spot relative to “betrayal,” which evokes some of my strongest feelings of outrage and sympathy — but the movie’s depiction of a separation that arises not even from betrayal but from Lethe, from forgetting — that sounds too heart-wrenching for me to watch.
