News & Interviews for Sorry, Haters
Critic Reviews for Sorry, Haters
A preposterous screwball psychological drama called Sorry, Haters, a film roughly as successful as the phrase 'screwball psychological drama' implies.
It contains such a gripping performance by Robin Wright Penn that it succeeds, in a way, despite itself. To see great work is a reason to see an imperfect movie, and to observe how the movie loses its way may be useful even if it's frustrating.
It's a well-meaning but ultimately feeble and misguided attempt to say something profound about the aftereffects of the 2001 attacks on New York.
That Penn and Kechiche are so committed to their roles only makes writer-director Jeff Stanzler's film more of a conundrum.
Sorry, Haters trades in glib reversals, not complexities -- just about everyone is a crude stereotype turned on its head.
Audience Reviews for Sorry, Haters
[font=Century Gothic]In "Sorry, Haters", Phyllis(Robin Wright Penn) is an unstable and divorced executive for a music television channel in New York, looking to redeem her corporate job and make a difference in her empty life. One night, opportunity arrives when she hails a cab driven by Ashade(Abdellatif Kechiche), originally from Syria where he earned a PhD in chemistry. He spends all of his free time trying to gain the freedom of his brother who was deported and caring for his sister-in-law, Eloise(Elodie Bouchez). After he drives Phyllis out to her former home in New Jersey, she offers to help by contacting an attorney friend.[/font]
[font=Century Gothic]But then she asks Ashade if he is interested in retribution...[/font]
[font=Century Gothic]"Sorry, Haters" is a believable allegory about terrorism and American culture that Robin Wright Penn keeps together through sheer force of will. The movie has more than its share of twists, but never entirely goes off the rails. On the other hand, it is less than original.[/font]
wow what a movie...very realistic and an excellent performance by Robin Wright Penn...all I can say is see this movie!! Its a very disturbing and provocative character study...and yes, the ending will leave you speechless, and having you thinking long afterwards!
Pretty interesting, but intense.
