Movie Info

Whether trodding the boards for paying audiences or performing at the kitchen table for her theatrical family (mother Diane Salinger, father Jack Heller, uncle David Proval, boarder Harriet Schock) the only place Pandora Isaacs (Tanna Frederick) has ever felt truly safe and entirely at home is onstage. Like so many actors she is not completely sure about the difference between real life and the theater and - as she willingly admits - she really doesn't want to. Stinging from a recent romantic

George ... disdains working on TV or in dinner theater. Compared to this movie, however, these would be preferable alternatives.

You will either laugh or cringe, depending on your enjoyment of comic melodrama (the kind view) or distaste for overindulged actors (the not-so-kind view).

Altogether, it comes to resemble theater filmed by Paul Greengrass.

The boldness is welcome, the execution awkward.

Self-consciously cribbing from Chekhov by way of Robert Altman, the filmmaker convenes an extended family of stage actors at a decaying country house in New Rochelle, where the Ambien-enhanced emotional pitch lingers north of perpetual hysteria.

Self-indulgent drama in which braying actors spout utter twaddle about the Thea-tah.

Henry Jaglom applies what must by now qualify as a tradition of pointless agitation to the disruption of theater. Unsurprisingly, the results are disastrous.
