Sorry, Haters: Grade A


Sorry, Haters

Robin Wright Penn, Abdellatif Kechiche, Sandra Oh. Writer, Director: Jeff Stanzler.

RWP is a phenomenal actor. Her performance is riveting in this psychological thriller. AK also does a superb job. Penn is psychologically distraught after a divorce she claims was caused by “home-wrecker” Oh. She meets AK, a cab driver from Syria with a single mom sister in need. Penn is a media person and decides to help the sister reconnect with her Syrian husband who has been sent to Gitmo after being “profiled” at an airport. Or maybe there’s more to it than that. The story is realistic, compelling, thought-provoking, and unpredictable. Great Mid-Eastern music in the opening.
