Description

Playwright Kenneth Lonergan’s second turn behind the camera (following his 2000 success “You Can Count on Me”) captures a sprawling narrative centered around the life of 17-yearold New Yorker Lisa (Anna Paquin) in the days after a fatal traffic accident in which she believes she played a part. Wracked with guilt over the thought that she may have contributed to a woman’s death, Lisa’s struggles to assimilate the tragedy send her on a collision course with the harsh realities of the adult world. One of the year’s greatest overlooked American films—a film that was nearly lost to the world after a brutal and lengthy editing process sparked multiple lawsuits—this long-awaited masterwork features an all-star cast, including Matt Damon, Mark Ruffalo, J. Smith-Cameron, Matthew Broderick and Jean Reno.
