Life During WartimeClosed Captioning
Open iTunes to preview, buy, and download this movie.
Part sequel, part variation on his acclaimed and controversial HAPPINESS, the newest film from celebrated director Todd Solondz (WELCOME TO THE DOLLHOUSE, PALINDROMES) assembles an amazing ensemble cast including Allison Janney, Shirley Henderson, Paul Reubens, Michael Kenneth Williams, Ally Sheedy, Charlotte Rampling, and Ciáran Hinds in an utterly hilarious exploration of the boundaries of forgiveness, family, and love. Ten years have passed since shocking revelations shattered the world of the Jordan family, and now sisters Joy (Henderson), Trish (Janney), and Helen (Sheedy), each embroiled in their own unique dilemmas, struggle to find their place in an unpredictable and volatile world. The past now haunts their family both literally and otherwise, and jeopardizes the future. Alternately hilarious and tragic, outrageous and poignant, LIFE DURING WARTIME is an audacious comedy with unexpected resonance.

Fresh: A taut and tantalizing mix of salty bites and lazy blanks...
Fresh: [Solondz'] best to date...
Fresh: Todd Solondz keeps attempting the impossible and deserves credit for trying.
Rotten: [Solondz] seems mired in simply rehearsing his characters' most fatal flaws.
But can we PLEASE have Happiness on iTunes - in HD! To Buy please!!!!
Solondz starts this gem off right with the first scene & doesn't disappoint with the rest.
