Life During Wartime

Life During Wartime (Criterion) — Todd Solondz has never been one to shy away from shame, regret and outrage. In his new film Life During Wartime, he takes an important step forward in his development as a filmmaker by finally building a work around mercy and forgiveness. As such, Solondz has finally made a film that addresses our politics without excoriating them; this is a movie about the unspoken need to be loved.
