Art's Review of House of Sand and Fog
House of Sand and Fog(2003)
Jennifer Connelly really wanted a father. Ron Eldard really wanted a lover. Ben Kinsley really wanted a return to glory days. To get what they want they choose deadly paths. I really feel for the longings in these characters, and achingly so when they pursue the fulfillment of their longings in such painfully fraught ways, all centered around this California cliffside bungalo. A gripping tale of the brokenness and broken pursuits of humanity.
