The Upside Of Anger

3

Anyone who’s been exposed to the trauma of divorce will find pangs of recognition in Mike Binder’s bittersweet confection. A waspish Joan Allen goes into boozy meltdown when hubby scarpers, leaving her to handle four headstrong daughters (including Evan Rachel Wood). Luckily, there’s ex-baseballer turned radio DJ Kevin Costner to offer Allen some drunken respite from her loneliness. Acting like Bull Durham’s Crash Davies 20 years later, Kev’s lively, well-worn charm brings an irresistible upside to all the middle-class angst.
