Day 114

Movie: Carnage
Starring: Jodie Foster, Kate Winslet
Genre: Drama
Year: 2011
Format: Shaw Video On Demand

Plot: Two sets of parents get together one afternoon to figure out how to handle the fact their children were in a fight at school.

This is based on a stage play, and is a Roman Polanski film.

Warning- this is all dialog.  Which is something I crave at times. You can feel a bit claustrophobic as it all takes place in a small apartment, 90% of which is the living room.

It's a witty film, that sort of goes nowhere but it zips by you so fast you're unaware that you spent almost an hour and a half just listening to people fight and drink and puke.

What do I think I learned from this film?
Even when you have the best of intentions you can still manage to create chaos.
