Life During Wartime

Nothing comes easily for Joy (Shirley Henderson) and her sisters, Trish (Allison Janney) and Helen (Ally Sheedy). Joy, unhappy with her job and her sleazy husband (Michael Kenneth Williams) ], is haunted by her dead boyfriend's ghost (Paul Reubens). Trish's pedophile husband (Ciarán Hinds) is behind bars, and she's ready to move on with her life. As an increasingly bitter Helen approaches middle age with a failing screenwriting career, it becomes clear her mother offers little comfort.

Are there times when it is better to forget than forgive? That is the question central to the lives of the characters in "Life During Wartime," the latest from director Todd Solondz. When it comes to remembering Solondz's 1998 film "Happiness," which shocks and ewws with tales of sexual deviancy, squeamish movie-goers might feel the answer to this question is yes. Unfortunately for those people, Solondz has resurrected those characters, picking up a bit down the road from where he left off with the first film.
