Within that setting, the film tells the story of Conrad's attempts to deal with the guilt he feels after his brother's death. A series of psychotherapy sessions with Dr. Berger (Judd Hirsch) plays a crucial role. Seeing Dr. Berger also helps Calvin understand some things, and when in a midnight confrontation he tells Beth of his sorrow that she has substantially changed for the worse, she packs her bags and leaves. The film ends early the next morning, with Conrad and his father in an emotional embrace on the front steps of their home. The movie ‘Ordinary People’, as its name implies, basically deals with average people who are actually very common in real world as their problems are.

He was repulsed even though the man had actually moved home because he knew he was dying. Even though Jerry was raised in a small, conservative community Jerry’s comments were what was repulsing. The hard headed, pea brained Jerry could not understand that homosexuals are everywhere, even in 1987. The only difference is that today we do not feel the need to hide as much, though obviously there are still places where today I wouldn’t vocalize the point that I’m gay. But In 1987 gay marriage was not being thought of, there was no place in America where homosexuals could marry, this gave Jerry more ease in being adamantly opposed to this AIDS positive homosexual who moved home to die.
