Life During Wartime
Ten years after the critically acclaimed ‘Happiness’, Todd Solondz revisits the tangled personal lives of three sisters in this savagely funny satire of middle class mores. Joy (Shirley Henderson) is married to a man with an unresolved ‘affliction’ and haunted by a former lover; Trish (Allison Janney) meets an unlikely new suitor while her ex-con ex-husband attempts to reconnect with their young son; meanwhile Helen (Ally Sheedy) feels pressured by her family and her Hollywood success. Featuring an all-star cast, this emotionally resonant portrait of flawed but fascinating characters struggling to find love and meaning in an unsympathetic world is poignant, sometimes shocking and often hilarious.
