Interesting, multi-faceted story of the lives of folks on Florida's
Plantation Island. Many compelling characters populate this film: some
sad, some funny, all very real. Great cast includes Edie Falco
(The Sopranos), Angela Bassett, Timothy Hutton, James McDaniel, Alan
King and Mary Steenburgen. Writer/director John Sayles seems (in my
view) incapable of making a bad film. As with all filmmakers, some are
better than others. This one falls somewhere in the middle. Sayles has
made such excellent films in the past: Eight Men Out, Matewan, Lone
Star, and Limbo (to name a few), that when he simply makes a good film
it can somehow seem a bit disappointing. Certainly not for all tastes,
Sunshine State impressed me, and I give it a 4 (out of 5).
