Drama
Only in Hollywood can a bond build between a pot-smoking, sex-addicted record producer, a rock-star boyfriend 20 years her junior, a straight-laced Harvard Medical School graduate and his rich fiancée who is obsessed with the mating rituals of fruit flies. Writer/Director Lisa Cholodenko creates this tabloid type of family that seems too quirky to be real and too far-fetched to be relatable as it meanders from extreme character to improbable relationship until it reaches a disappointing inconclusive ending. The all-star cast led by the riveting character-actress Frances McDormand manages to save this film from its destined burial in the self-titled California chasm.
