After a stint in a mental institution, former teacher Pat Solitano moves back in with his parents and tries to reconcile with his ex-wife. Things get more challenging when Pat meets Tiffany, a mysterious girl with problems of her own.
David O. Russell
Robert De Niro
Dispatched from his basement room on an errand for his widowed mother, slacker Jeff might discover his destiny (finally) when he spends the day with his unhappily married brother as he tracks his possibly adulterous wife.
In my opinion, Jennifer Westfeldt can do no wrong, as a writer/director and especially as an actress. Nothing but charisma. The girl of every neurotic guy's dreams.
I just saw this movie in full on cable... I caught the very end several months ago and didn't know what the hell was happening, but, seeing it from the beginning... definitely better.
The pace is just non-stop with this film... you can't catch your breath or think about what you just saw until the very end. That's SHARP writing and even sharper directing.... the acting just ties it all in.
Beautiful film, great story, and wonderful characters.
I'm ordering the DVD on Amazon right now.
Thanks, Jennifer, for everything you do in film (Kissing Jessica Stein was my introduction to this truly talented woman).
