Maybe it’s because I saw this on the heels of Storytelling and Better Luck Tomorrow, but, dang, it sure was nice to see a film where people had a conscience. Jill Sprecher’s second feature (her first was Clockwatchers) shows us a variety of characters whose lives interweave as the story unfolds. Alan Arkin is great as an insurance adjuster who fires an annoyingly cheerful employee. John Turturro puts in another amusing performance of the nebbish variety. Matthew McConaughey does solid turns as he flip flops from cocky attorney to the repentant purveyor of a hit-and-run. All in all this was an enjoyable story that deserves quick distribution.
