HAPPINESS

Year: 1998

Todd Solondz?s darkly comic masterpiece is about sex and the trouble it causes, human impulses, hidden desires, and how one acts when confronted with the truth. Three New Jersey sisters?underachiever Joy (Jane Adams), domestic goddess Trish (Cynthia Stevenson), and successful author Helen (Lara Flynn Boyle)?are searching for love in the all the wrong places, having attracted all the wrong men, including a pedophile (Dylan Baker), a thief (Jared Harris), and a stalker (Philip Seymour Hoffman). Meanwhile, their parents (Louise Lasser and Ben Gazzara) are ending a 40-year marriage, proving that nothing lasts forever.
