First screened in August 2017
Director: Robin Swicord. Cast: Bryan Cranston, Jennifer Garner, Jason O'Mara, Beverly D'Angelo, Ellery Sprayberry, Victoria Bruno, Pippa Bennett-Warner, Isaac Leyva, Ian Anthony Dale, Eliza Coleman, Cameron Simmons, Bill Timoney. Screenplay: Robin Swicord (based on the short story by E.L. Doctorow).

Twitter Capsule: No sustained POV on a story that really needs one to make its case. Every artistic department is wonky. Cranston no help.

VOR:   There's at least potential here for a valuable auto-critique of elite-class masculinity or of proprietary sexism, but it's all too jumbled.
