John Patrick Shanley opens up his Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award-winning play,
diluting some of its dramatic alchemy, but with its considerable strengths intact. He’s assembled a veritable screen dream team to rival the brilliant stage ensemble. Thought-provoking, witty and suspenseful; Oscar buzz is strong.
