Great story, strong actors
The Upside of Anger was a wonderfully written script. The perfect blend of
humor and sadness, consistent in real life. Each character was developed
uniquely, with many different layers. Each character was matched by strong
up and coming and veteran actors. Joan Allen as usual is a gem and proves
that mainstream Hollywood is missing one of the great female leads of our
time. Kevin Costner sticks out and steals the show. He's quirky but real
perfectly lovable. All the girls, although they did not get enough screen
time, were capable, exceptional, actors with a bright future in front of
them all. Especially the youngest daughter played by Evan Rachel Wood.
is a rare comedy that must be seen. Although the average American may find
it slow with it's absence of car chases and sword fights, one can only
that this movie will find it's audience and grow enough to fall into the
laps of the average and broaden their minds.
