HATESHIP / LOVESHIP (2014)


Just screened Kristin Wiig's new film Hateship/Loveship and it's a slow meandering drama about an extremely introverted woman who works as a live-in caregiver or housekeeper wherever she can. When Nick Nolte hires her to take care of his house and keep an eye on his teenage granddaughter, Wiig is fooled by a cruel trick played by the daughter and friend that ends up...well I can't give that up. Wiig once again underplays a role so much she almost vanishes. And the cast is so good (Nolte, Guy Pearce, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Christine Lahti) that Wiig sticks out in the wrong way. Why do all comedians insist on doing dramas? A tough watch. #26 of 2014
