Storyline

Warner isn't sure how he got where he is, but he's not particularly happy to be there: mid-thirties, married, two kids, dead-end career in fund raising, cramped town house, old car, clothes slightly frayed around the edges. His latest job has landed him and his family in a boom-town where everyone else seems to have more than Warner - and more is what Warner wants. But it's not what he gets. Instead, the probation period of his job has just been extended; his wife, Claire, thinks her own job is in jeopardy as well; their entire savings are going towards a house that won't be big enough for them; and their four-year-old daughter, the preschool teacher tells them, is "a couple of beats behind" the other children. In fact, there isn't one part of Warner's life that's going the way he'd planned. But are his disappointments and frustrations powerful enough to trigger murderous anger? When Claire is viciously attacked and Warner emerges as the prime suspect, the answer might be yes. Now, as... Written by David Christensen

Painful
14 November 2007 | by See all my reviews

This film truly and accurately captured how horrifically stultifying, hopeless and drab real life can be. Thirty minutes into it, I was toying with the idea of suicide, but not because I felt the film was "horrible". Outstanding acting, a genuinely accurate portrayal of life at it's most prosaic, though not what I'd call "entertaining". No, it was because of how strikingly the despair of the main character was communicated to me. It was difficult to sit through. I got up to do other things many times and, if there'd been anything else remotely interesting on VOD which I hadn't yet seen, I would've watched something else. But I made it through and it hurt. Not a sharp pain, just the dull, throbbing anguish of a life bereft of excitement or hope.
