A man who lost his family in the September 11 attack on New York City runs into his old college roommate. Rekindling the friendship is the one thing that appears able to help the man recover from his grief.
Jada Pinkett Smith
A motorcycle stunt rider turns to robbing banks as a way to provide for his lover and their newborn child, a decision that puts him on a collision course with an ambitious rookie cop navigating a department ruled by a corrupt detective.
In Hollywood, people in need revolve around Dr. Henry Carter, a shrink: Jack, an aging star wants permission to cheat on his wife; Shamus is a director who's a cokehead; Patrick is a high-powered germophobic producer; Jeremy is a young writer looking for a break; Jemma, a high-school student, is skipping school; and Kate is an actress facing her mid-30s. Henry's wife recently died; he's grieving, blaming himself, smoking lots of pot. Henry's friends try an intervention; someone steals a patient's file from Henry; Patrick's assistant, the pregnant Daisy, sees promise in Jeremy's work; and, Jesus, Henry's drug dealer, sells him some potent weed. Can anything good come of this? Written by
When Henry and Jeremy are sitting outside discussing their memories of Henry's wife, they appear to be intoxicated, but in fact are drinking from bottles of O'Douls (a non-alcoholic beverage). See more »
I suppose - one of the best pieces I have seen in a while
...And the deal is not even about Kevin Spacey, whose acting always touches me very deeply.
The point is about the mood that is so well transmitted through the common screen glass. No thrilling plot twists but very gentle reflection of the main characters' lives. 'Cause they're still here and this is something... right?
Please be sure you have an appropriate mood for the slowly depicting personalities. Whose lives can really suck sometimes. And if you get lucky to see this film in the right mood and place I assure you will not leave empty... At least you have space to fill in.
