The Meddler — Ordinary things happening to a well-off widow — 7*/10

  • Story: Vaguely interesting, just because you're wondering what's going to happen next. Not that there's anything exciting going on. It's a bunch of stuff you hope doesn't really happen. I'm not sure there's that much of a story here. It's just the life of a woman. It's anecdotal and probably more interesting to women in a similar situation.
  • Pacing: Strange.
  • Ending: There is, but there isn't. It's everyday stuff that never really ends.
  • Dialogs: A lot of it. Lots of narrating too.
  • Characters: You get a solid sense of who the main character is, but not really anybody else, they're all unidimensional.
  • Acting: Good, mostly.
  • Known actors: Susan Sarandon, Rose Byrne and J.K. Simmons.
  • Synopsis & information
  • Entertainment value: Not sure. Maybe good for women like the main character.
  • Who is it for? Sarandon fans.
