Storyline

Gabriel is a man who on the surface has it all-successful professional life as an architect, a beautiful wife, Annie, and a devoted young daughter, Elizabeth. But slowly it dawns on him that he is not really happy. Gabriel decides that he wants to write a play about the sorry state of his life. He quits his job, gets a pushy literary agent friend to represent him and starts writing. Although his marriage ends in a divorce, the play is success and although his life is different than it was, he is happier. Written by Brooks Branch

Quotes

[first lines]
Gabriel: [listening to self on dictaphone] Oh wow! Until now is the only time I ever felt sure about anything. My whole life never seems to catch up to that moment. But to be unsure, well, I don't know. What if there's no reason in your life to feel shitty, but you do anyway? No enemy to point at. What do you do then?

A Common American Ailment
24 September 2010 | by (Vancouver, BC, Canada) – See all my reviews

Another reviewer here characterized the whole premise of the movie as "preposterous". Obviously, that person has not known many people of wealth and privilege. I have personally known many people of great "success" and wealth who were not very happy. They may have fulfilled the "American Dream" of job, family, etc... but they did NOT feel contentment, fulfillment or joy. One recently committed suicide... a very well-off and talented guy.

So, it's not "preposterous" at all. It's quite common and very understandable since our values here are based almost completely on money -- which is only a tool and you can't purchase happiness, only distraction.
