The Oranges


Two families, close friends and neighbors, in posh suburban South Orange, NJ, have their friendship tested when an inappropriate relationship develops among them.

I saw this film over a year ago at the Toronto Film Festival and I have no idea why it took so long to come out).  I'm testing my memory a bit, so I'll keep this one brief, but I can safely tell you this is one enjoyable dramedy with an impressive ensemble cast including Hugh Laurie, Oliver Platt, Catherine Keener, Allison Janney, Leighton Meester, and Adam Brody.  It deserves better than the quiet theatrical release with poor marketing it's getting.

Grade: A-
