Weekly Movie Recommendations : 5th July 2008 - 11th July 2008

Magnolia (1999)

Genre - Drama

Cast - Tom Cruise, Julianne Moore, William H.Macy, John C.Reilly, Philip Baker Hall, Philip Seymour Hoffman

Whats It About - An epic mosaic of several interrelated characters in search of happiness, forgiveness, and meaning in the San Fernando Valley.

Why To Watch It - Apart from a stellar cast, the way the director shows how each character's life gets entwined with other is sheer brilliance.

Director Paul Thomas Anderson's follow-up to BOOGIE NIGHTS is an extravagant, emotional epic inspired by such films as Robert Altman's NASHVILLE and SHORT CUTS, with a sprawling cast of characters searching for love and meaning in a chaotic world. The cast delivers uniformly excellent performances, most notably Tom Cruise's Oscar-nominated role as the sleazy Frank T.J. Mackey.

Each one of the lead roles has played their part to perfection thereby enhancing the already magnificent character development, plot and acting.
