The Upside of Anger
Look for a “Best Actress” nomination for Joan Allen for her role in this family drama. I have seen “The Upside of Anger” billed as a romantic comedy, but I sure wouldn’t call it that. Yes, there are some sweet and funny moments between Joan Allen and Kevin Costner, her would-be paramour, but the emphasis here is on family dynamics, and how a family functions after a crisis. The four daughters in the story are all very rich, layered characters. This is a wonderful film for women! Definitely thought-provoking.
