A film by Paul Thomas Anderson.
Cast: Tom Cruise, Jason Robards, Julianne Moore.
24 hours in L.A.; it’s raining cats and dogs. Two parallel and intercut stories dramatize men about to die: both are estranged from a grown child, both want to make contact, and neither child wants anything to do with dad. Earl Partridge’s son is a charismatic misogynist; Jimmy Gator’s daughter is a cokehead and waif. A mild and caring nurse intercedes for Earl, reaching the son; a prayerful and upright beat cop meets the daughter, is attracted to her, and leads her toward a new calm. Meanwhile, guilt consumes Earl’s young wife, while two whiz kids, one grown and a loser and the other young are pressured and face their situations. The weather is getting worse. Could it be the end of the world. Paul Thomas Anderson has done a commendable job in putting on the screen a relatively unique vision Let just day they are similarities between Robert Altman.
