"Woman Wanted" Mini Review
Anybody seen "Woman Wanted?" I caught it on cable the other night--a love triangle comprised by Holly Hunter, Kiefer Sutherland and Michael Moriarity. It wasn't Oscar quality, but it held my interest til the end. I guess the main theme was the dysfunctional relationship between Moriarity and his son, Sutherland, elucidated by Holly Hunter's relationships with the two of them. Moriarity plays a self-absorbed heavy, a professor and a father who wasn't there for his son when he needed him and who lacked insight into his effect on others close to him or empathy for their feelings. Worth watching when you have nothing better on your plate. I'm a sucker for Holly Hunter in just about anything. And Michael Moriarity's performance as the heavy was nuanced--you almost feel sorry for him, but not quite, and you almost hate him but not quite. Sutherland's performance was less memorable than Hunter's and Moriarity's for me. Sutherland's played a sympathetic loser crushed by his self-absorbed father.
The movie was directed by Kiefer Sutherland. It was released in 2000.
