Twitter Capsule: Hyperbolic nonsense about a young mother's unraveling. Lenses, story get increasingly distorted. Two Venice awards??

VOR:   Something spiky and seldom-addressed lurks in this material about new parents differing sharply in their caretaking styles. Every once in a while it hits a nerve. Mostly, it's crazy.
