Plot Summary

An embittered television executive working for a hip-hop-oriented music channel finds her fate intricately tied with a New York City taxi driver after hailing his cab for questionable purposes in director Jeff Stanzler's intimate look at the tenuous relationship between Caucasians and Muslims in post-9/11 America. Phoebe (Robin Wright Penn) hates her job at Q Dog TV, and focuses the brunt of her disgruntled rage squarely on co-worker Phyllis MacIntyre (Sandra Oh). During the course of their extended journey to Phoebe's suburban destination, troubled Muslim cab driver Ashade (Abdel Kechiche) confides to his passenger that the arrest of his brother on charges of suspected terrorism has thrown his family into chaos. Though the increasingly unstable Phoebe listens diligently to Ashade's tragic confession — even offering to help the distraught Syrian chemist-turned-cab driver's struggling family — it's only after arriving at his fare's destination that Ashade truly begins to grasp Phoebe's true nature and realize that he has made a grave mistake in placing his trust in her.

Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: Plucking shamelessly on post-September 11 anxieties, Sorry, Haters follows the irrational involvement of a New York City cab driver and a disturbed fare. – Jeannette Catsoulis, New York Times, Jul 16, 2008

Rotten: That Penn and Kechiche are so committed to their roles only makes writer-director Jeff Stanzler's film more of a conundrum. – Lisa Schwarzbaum, Entertainment Weekly, Jul 7, 2010

Rotten: A head-scratcher supreme -- not least for pondering what possibly attracted Robin Wright Penn to her intractable, impossible role -- Jeff Stanzler's Sorry, Haters is sorry indeed. – Robert Koehler, Variety, Feb 23, 2012

Fresh: An audacious, highly contemporary psychological thriller. – Michael Rechtshaffen, Hollywood Reporter, Jun 24, 2010

you have no idea!!!

The intentions of this movie are hidden very well, and all the while, the story builds momentum right up to the climax. It’s a film that leaves you thinking and has a bizarre twist that nobody will see coming. The dialogue feels natural to the point of improv, which also greatly works to its advantage. The conclusion will most assuredly leave you speachless (only for 10 minutes or so), then keep you talking about it for hours after.

Stark, uncompromising

This movie has a very stark feel to it. There's none of the flashy cinematography, perfect lighting, perfect sound quality, grandiose score etc that you find in big budget mall-movies, but strangely, that makes it better. The simplicity of the execution makes you feel like you're actually in the scenes with the characters, and as the story progresses, this lack of separation becomes genuinely uncomfortable. You actually feel like you're in the room as one of the characters decends into madness. Not the over-the-top Hollywood caricature of madness, but real "the-person-sitting-next-to-you-is-clinically-nuts" kind madness. I can't say that I "liked" this movie (not a feel good story) but it is powerful, creepy, very well acted and definitely keeps your attention

Hardly Worth Your Time and Money...

Penn and Oh.... I expect better from you. Even when the money is scarse, you two need to chose better projects. Skip.
