    Default Heavy Movie

    What does one mean by "Heavy movie"?


    Todd: OK. Jamie, We're going to talk about movies.
    Jamie: OK, Great!
    Todd: What is your favorite movie?
    Jamie: My favorite movie is kind of a heavy movie. It's a called Sophie's Choice with Merryl Streep and Kevin Cline.
    Todd: OK.
    Jamie: It's a, it's a movie, it's set in World War II. Meryll Streep plays a Polish woman who has come to America and she's met a man, Kevin Kline, who has a series of problems of his own, mostly psychological, which she is not 100 percent aware of and she does a bunch of scenes where she thinks of the past and the very difficult decision she had while, during the war, living in Poland, she had to decide between two children, which one would be murdered by the Nazis, and which one wouldn't, and it's an ethical delimna she faced at that time, and she made and immediate decision on, and affected her the rest of her life.


    Has the phrase "Heavy movie" got to do something with war? Did the speaker mean that he saw a war movie?.........Please advise.
