#123movies #fmovies #putlocker #gomovies #solarmovie #soap2day Watch Full Movie Online Free – The Marks family is a tightly-knit quartet of women. Jane is the affluent matriarch whose 3 daughters seem to have nothing in common except for a peculiar sort of idealism. Setting the tone of vanity and insecurity, Jane is undergoing cosmetic surgery to alter her figure, but serious complications put her health in real danger. Former homecoming queen Michelle, the eldest daughter, has one daughter of her own and an alienated, unsupportive husband. Elizabeth, the middle sister, has an acting career that is beginning to take off, but is timid and insecure, and habitually relieves her trepidation by taking in stray dogs. Only the youngest sister, Annie, an adopted African American 8-year-old, stands a chance of avoiding the family legacy of anxious self-absorption. If only her intelligence and curiosity will see her through what promises to be a confusing adolescence. Each of the women seeks redemption in her own haphazard way.
Plot: An intimate family portrait of four hapless but resilient women and the bittersweet lessons they learn in keeping up with the hectic demands of their individual neuroses. Each of the women seeks redemption in her own haphazard way, but whatever salvation they find is illusory and short-lived.

Watchable and inoffensive but hardly likely to arouse intense debate about anything, really. The performances are neat and unshowy, with Catherine Keener reliable as ever as (another) wayward hard-ass, Mulroney playing the roguish fool and Jake Gyllenhaal practising for the role he plays in The Good Girl. But Brenda Blethyn’s matriarch isn’t given any real depth which has got to go down as a missed opportunity. And since the story is an irrelevance, there aren’t enough revelations (in fact, none) amongst the introspective musings and general angst to set this apart from any other female-orientated slice-of-life indie. It all feels a bit like Soderbergh’s Full Frontal, only less constipated.
complicated women movie
Jane Marks (Brenda Blethyn) is going through cosmetic surgery for her vanity. She has three daughters. Michelle Marks (Catherine Keener) is a former homecoming queen afraid of falling behind. She’s unable to sell her craft projects and has no job. Her husband Bill (Clark Gregg) is cheating on her. Elizabeth Marks (Emily Mortimer) is an insecure minor actress who may be on her way up. Annie Marks (Raven Goodwin) is their black adopted little sister and Lorraine (Aunjanue Ellis) is from the Big Sister program. Elizabeth gets involved with actor Kevin McCabe (Dermot Mulroney) and Michelle gets involved with young co-worker Jordan (Jake Gyllenhaal).
These are complicated women, all with their own inner fears. I started to wonder whether there is anything more than that. There are a lot of first world problems going on here. It’s not until Jake Gyllenhaal at half hour in before I get the first laugh. This movie is in need of a lot more humor. Brenda Blethyn falls down and can’t get up. I’m not sure if that was suppose to be funny. It spends its time wading through their awkward inner pains with some weird awkward scenes. They are interesting but not funny or compelling.
