MOVIE REVIEW

Review by Nathan Samdahl (B+)

Carnage is one of those deliciously uncomfortable films that makes you squirm in your seat but crave for more.  Adapted from the stage play "God of Carnage", Carnage tells the story of two couples attempting to be civil in the wake of a school altercation between their two sons, in which one hit the other in with a stick. In the face.  Minus the opening shot (which shows the incident), the entire film plays out in the apartment of Penelope and Michael Longstreet (Jodie Foster and John C. Reilly), the victim's parents.  Nancy and Alan Cowan (Kate Winslet and Christoph Waltz), the perpetrator's parents, must eat humble pie (both literally and figuratively) to try to smooth out the situation.
