Happy Endings

2

Not quite that happy...

Released as Winter Passing in the US in 2006, this bizarrely rebranded comedy drama sees troubled actress Reese (Zooey Deschanel) return to her home town in Michigan, where her fragile novelist father (Ed Harris) has taken in two very different lodgers (Will Ferrell and Amelia Warner).

Don’t be suckered by the newly upbeat title and comic leads: the maudlin material doesn’t suit the cast and, though it gets into its groove in the final reel, it’s not remotely amusing or especially moving, spending most of its runtime dithering in the doldrums.
