Holy crap what a depressing movie this was. I had been warned it was depressing, but man they weren’t kidding. I won’t go into a schpiel about the movie, but I will say that Jennifer Connelly was a bit wooden but still good (after all, wasn’t her character a bit wooden?), and Shohreh Aghdashloo was decent, but I don’t think she deserved the Best Supporting Actress nomination that she got.
2 1/2 stars out of five. And a bump up of several comedies on my Netflix list to counteract the desolation of this one.
