Great performances, depressing real life for many
29 October 2014 | by (Maryland) – See all my reviews

This movie is depressing. However, it is realistic. People who live in the better parts of Washington, New York, San Francisco, Denver, etc, or most suburbs anywhere need to realize that the everyday life of a very, very large number of Americans is what is depicted in this film. Move to Youngstown OH, or Odessa TX, or any of a thousand other cities and you will see what America is really like. It is not the Hamptons, or Hyannis Port, or Beverly Hills, or Knob Hill, or McLean, or ......... What is sad is that these low-life ignorant people don't even realize what is best for them. They continue their downward spiral with booze (cheap), drugs (oxy, meth, crack), stupid behavior (breeding more of the same) and even voting against their own best interests (i.e. Republican).

Watts, as usual, is superb - she is clearly one of the two or three best living actresses today. Dillon's performance was as good as his best. Tess Harper was great as well.

The film is not really entertaining - there is not a single likable character. The plot is not a story, i.e. it has no real beginning or end; it is not a mystery, it is not a Jane Austin romance, it is not a comedy, etc. Nonetheless, I would recommend it purely so that upper and middle class America can see the life of what may well be the majority of Americans.
