Nice film about agents of all things.
This was written by Steven Weber of "Wings" fame, so I was a little worried at first, as it seems that the more actors move into writing and directing, the lousier films get, but this one surprised me. Well crafted, nicely written, it's really a father/son story, and Alan Alda all but steals the film. Weber is strong, and the score is lovely. The camera work is very fluid, but sometimes I felt as though it was showing off instead of helping the story. Supporting roles are all good, featuring lots of recognizable faces including Peter Reigert as a Rabbi. Worth a look.
