  • Keaton has crafted something rare: a screwball comedy that cuts to the heart. show more

  • Rich with physical and psychological texture, and boosted by Thomas Newman's muted score, Unstrung Heroes is that rare mainstream film that doesn't shout in our ear to make its points. It draws us in, subtly and gracefully, and casts a lingering charm. show more
