Summary
A dark comedy by Todd Solondz that explores contemporary American existence and the nature of forgiveness with his customary dry humor and queasy precision. The film functions as a distorted mirror image of Solondz's dark comedy "Happiness", it's emotionally stunted characters now groping for the possibility of change in a post-9/11 world. The grim New Jersey setting is transposed mainly to sunny Florida, but the biggest twist is that new actors fill the roles from the earlier film as alarmingly dissimilar sisters. Solondz's film finds the humor in the tragic and the tragic in the everyday
